Beach Safety 101

Come with your family to talk with Park Staff and learn the do's and don'ts of beach safety.  We will discuss rip currents- what they are, how they form, and what you can do to keep the swimmers in your family safe while you're at the beach.  We will also cover what to do if you are stung by a jellyfish or step on a stingray. 
 
Please call 910-458-5798 to make reservations.  Reservations required!  Space is limited.  

 

Masks must be worn at all times inside and all COVID-19 precautions are being followed.  Do not participate if you have any symptoms or have been recently exposed to COVID-19.
