Water depth can change suddenly due to the sea bed.
Be cautious of sudden depth change. Read the warning signs.
Swimming in areas of the sea where boats, surfboards, jet skis or other water sports are operating is extremely hazardous and could cause injury or fatality
Pay attention to the beach flags. Only swim in areas marked with red and yellow flags. Don’t swim in areas marked with the black and white flag which indicates that there are water sports in operation
Every year, people get caught out by rapidly rising water and end up being trapped in isolated bays. Inflatables often get blown out to sea and away from safety.
Make sure you know when the incoming tide is expected and where all the exits are. Do not use inflatables in open water. Use them in sheltered and confined spaces, such as rock pools
Hidden rocks in the sea can cause injury and cuts from rocks can become seriously infected if the water is polluted
Be careful when moving in the sea and do not jump into the water when you cannot see what is underneath
Fancy testing your perception skills and reflexes against the dangers of the water?
