Swimming in the ocean takes different skills, so before you get your feet wet, it’s best to learn how to swim in the surf. You should also swim only at a lifeguard-protected beach, within the designated swimming area. Obey all instructions and orders from lifeguards.
- Keep Kids Within Arm’s Reach
Especially in the sea, but also on land.
- Don’t Dive In
2/3 of catastrophic neck injuries occur in open water and the sea.
- Knee Deep Is Too Deep
Strong winds, waves and currents create dangerous rip currents that can sweep a child out to sea.
- Know Before You Go
Know your flags – Red means stop; Green means go.
- Take Frequent Breaks
Every hour take a sun, water or bathroom break.
