Lifeguards Increase Staffing for the Season

The Jacksonville Beach Lifeguards have increased lifeguard staffing levels and hours of operations from 9 a.m. to 7 p.m.

We would like to remind all bathers and beachgoers of a few ways to be safe in the water and at the beach:

  • Check in with the lifeguard before going into the water for real-time ocean conditions and hazards
  • Never swim alone, always swim with a buddy
  • Swim, body board, and surf near a lifeguard on duty
  • Practice good judgement.  Swim and surf within your abilities and never swim intoxicated
  • Designate a "Water Watcher" to be in charge of actively supervising kids in your group
  • Listen to all lifegard warnings and announcements

For daily beach and ocean condition information, contact the Jacksonville Beach Lifeguard Station at 904-249-9141.  In case of an emergency, seek a lifeguard immediately or call 911.
