BEACH SAFETY

RIP CURRENTS can be unpredictable, dangerous and deadly! Please use good judgment while swimming in the Gulf of Mexico.
LOOK FOR:

  • Unusual Choppiness
  • Discoloration of Water
  • Debris & Foam moving seaward

Learn how to identify and avoid them:

  • If you’re caught in a Rip Current, don’t panic. Swim parallel to the shore until the current weakens, then swim back to the shore.
  • Rip currents are strong, localized rivers of water that usually flow away from the beach at a surprisingly high velocity.
  • Usually they are associated with large waves and strong offshore winds, but not always!! In rare cases, rip currents occur during calm conditions.
