- Tips for Safe Swimming

- Tides, currents and weather patterns
- How to assess risks, both in and out of the water
I thoroughly recommend this Safe Swim Q&A. It was such a great opportunity for me to gain information and knowledge directly from experienced specialists in this area. Info included accessing when and where to get in the sea, local coastline, tides, wave types, taking precautions, websites and apps to assist in planning a swim, video clips and stories to highlight examples of how quickly situations can become challenging and much more. Thank you 😊
I found this talk really informative. It covered many aspects of how to swim safely in the sea and has helped my confidence greatly. I have a much better understanding of when it is safer to swim, when not to swim and what to do in an emergency. It was taught by Seabirds and a local lifeguard who were really happy to share their knowledge, experience and love of the sea.
I went to the last safety talk Seabirds held at Sea lanes and found it really helpful.
