Staying Safe Along the California Coast: Ocean Safety w/ California State Parks Lifeguards!

The ocean is alluringly beautiful, yet it is also relentless and can be deadly throughout the year along the California coast. It can be especially dangerous during the winter months regardless of what stretch of the California coastline you are visiting. Winter months bring high energy, long period swells that can catch you off guard if you are not aware of the conditions. Often times, tragedies occur when visitors are doing everyday activities like walking on the beach near the crashing waves, or simply taking photos.

Please join California State Parks lifeguards, and ocean interpreters to learn how you can recreate responsibly to keep yourself safe and in turn others safe from potentially deadly situations. Learn about sneaker waves, long period swells, rip currents, and what to do if caught in a life-threatening situation.
