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.
Your contributions help us to keep our stations equipped and ready to serve.
