*Swim close to shore, where your feet can touch the bottom.
*Swim, paddle, kayak, and surf in groups.
*Do not swim alone in the ocean at dawn or dusk. Avoid isolation.
*Limit splashing and do not wear shiny jewelry.
*Keep pets leashed. Inquisitive dogs can startle resting seals, resulting in seal bites or scratches to you or your pet.
*Follow instructions of lifeguards. Become familiar with the beach flag warning system. Take time to read signage at the beaches.
