Swimming tips

  • Always swim with a buddy - never alone.

  • Know your swimming limits and stay within them. Don't try to keep up with a stronger swimmer and keep an eye on weaker swimmers around you.

  • Alcohol and swimming don't mix. Alcohol impairs your judgment, balance and coordination. It affects your swimming and diving skills.

  • Do not chew gum or eat while swimming. You could easily choke.

  • Do not swim if you don’t feel well.

  • Never go too far into the sea, even if you are a good swimmer.

  • Leave the water when storm is coming.

  • Use common sense, avoid rocks, boats, and deep areas and make yourself visible to other people.
