Every Tuesday at 9 am from June 11-August 27 on the Edgewater Beach come out and watch the Sea Colony Ocean Lifeguards perform drills and water rescues. No two Tuesdays are the same and you will see a wide variety of scenarios and equipment being used. Guardian supervision is necessary. This activity is free and open to owners, guests and renters.
Safety Seminars have become a much- needed and very popular activity on Sea Colony’s beach. Every Sunday at noon, and other days as the Beach Patrol Captain deems necessary, the Beach Patrol will usher everyone out of the water to gather around the six lifeguard stands on the beach. The guards caution bathers about the beach and ocean conditions for that day/week. In addition to meeting the lifeguard, the bathers learn about rip currents and other educational tips. At this time the guests are directed to the Information Boards posted on the lifeguard stands. Guests should be reminded that conditions change daily and sometimes even hourly so it is suggested to attend each and every Safety Seminar. And as always, please feel free to ask questions! Learn more about Rip Current Awareness here.
