Beach Conditions

Rips tides are very strong on Matagorda Beach. We experience a number of emergency situations each year. If you’ll be visiting the beach –

  • Know what to do if you are caught in a rip current
  • Ensure anyone in your party that is not a strong swimmer is always wearing a life jacket
  • Position your party away from the Pier. The Pier is a no swimming area. Individuals die each year from getting caught in currents near the pier.

In An Emergency

Dial 911.

The Bay City dispatchers will notify Matagorda and Selkirk volunteers of your location & need for assistance.
