Lifeguards Not on Duty Daily   

Lifeguards may not be on duty daily through Labor Day, Monday, September 3, 2018 in the protected swim area.  Park staff make every effort to ensure lifeguards are on duty in the protected swim area Memorial Day through Labor Day; however, due to circumstances beyond our control and occasionally at the last moment, lifeguards may not be on duty.  If you have questions about the status of lifeguards, please contact the park office at hammocks.beach@ncparks.gov or 910.326.4881.  Always use extreme caution as rip currents and strong currents can occur at any time.  Current information regarding Bear Island and the ferry service can be found under the Hammocks Beach Park News Link.
