The map above is color-coded to indicate the forecast rip current risk level. Click on the beach area of your choice for more information.
Rip currents are powerful, channeled currents of water flowing away from shore. They typically extend from the shoreline, through the surf zone, and past the line of breaking waves. Rip currents can occur at any beach with breaking waves.
If caught in a rip current, swim parallel to the beach and you will eventually swim out of the outgoing current. Remember to heed the advice of the local beach patrol and flag warning systems.
