Respect for rip currents
Parks Canada offers the following advice on respecting the water.
– All swimmers are encouraged to use supervised swimming areas and check surf conditions daily.
– If caught in a rip current, which is a powerful seaward current that can pull even the strongest swimmers out to sea, don’t fight the current, swim out of the current and then to shore. If you can’t escape, float or tread water. If you need help, call or wave for assistance.
