Full moon spring tide warning

NSRI are urging the public to be extra cautious around the coast during the Full Moon Spring Tide over the weekend that will prevail into the first half of the coming week and peaks during full moon on 4 November 2017.

Full Moon Spring Tide causes stronger than normal rip currents around the coast and higher than normal high tides and lower than normal low tides.

At all times bathers, anglers, paddlers, sail boarders and boaters should be aware of high tide, low tide and rip-currents but extreme caution is advised during the full moon Spring Tide.

Rip currents are one of the greatest causes of drowning accidents around the South African Coastline.

Bathers, people walking along the coastline and shoreline anglers are most at risk during a Spring Tide and extreme caution is advised.

Only go to beaches where and when lifeguards are on duty and swim in safe demarcated swimming zones posted by the lifeguards using their red and yellow flags and obey the safety instructions of lifeguards at our beaches.

Safety tips can be viewed on the NSRI web site HERE
