Season is almost here. Reading This Repost could save your life.

It takes courage and calm to escape a Rip Tide ( Current ). Training helps too. Stay calm. Conserve energy and think it through.
You will feel the tow. It's scary but stay calm. The tide will take you out but don't panic. Tread water swim, conserve energy.

Then Swim easy to the side as you are able, parallel, not towards the beach and you will escape it's grasp. They are usually only so wide. Even if you are taken out a very long distance you can beat it by tread water swimming parallel to the beach then angle in once it's released it's hold on you, then head in on an angle.

Most people that die in a rip tide drown from exhaustion trying to swim straight back towards the beach against the tide, in fear. A good indication of a Rip Tide Area is where you see sand being pulled off the beach outward to form a new sandbar by the tides. The shallow turquoise water can be pretty too, but beware.

Life Jackets are rarely seen on a beach but...hey, why not start a new trend. Think you're too old or too cool for a life jacket? Then try carrying a small boogie board or a noodle. That works well too. Any device that aids in floatation will do the trick. You will lean on it rather than reverting to panic. It can SAVE your Life.
If you are unable to escape, face the shore and call or wave for help.

In 2019 we lost 9 people to Rip Tides on North Captiva. Use your head. Stay Calm

Best to all of you my friends. Stay Safe. Prayers to the family of the man who gave his life to save his daughter.
