There is a high risk of rip currents. Life threatening rip

flags and signs. Swim near a lifeguard.

If you become caught in a rip current...yell for help. Remain not exhaust yourself and stay afloat while waiting for
help. If you have to swim out of a rip current...swim parallel to
shore and back toward the beach when possible. Do not attempt to
swim directly against a rip current as you will tire quickly.
