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 and foam moving seaward
  •   

    Learn how to identify and avoid rip currents. 

  • 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 rip currents are associated with large waves and strong offshore winds, but not always. In rare cases, rip currents occur during calm conditions.
