Before swimming, surfing, or diving into beach waters, Gulf Beach Lifeguards with Corpus Christi’s Parks and Recreation want you to stay out of harm’s way.

For many spring breaks to enjoy themselves, the water may call your name.

“We don’t want anything bad happening and if you ever need help with anything rather it be like a minor first aid or if you see something out in the water you want us to check up on it we can,” says Corpus Christi Gulf Beach Lifeguard Daniel Alcala.

When driving on Padre Island, the Corpus Christi Police Department has made their presence known by patrolling the beaches and the roads.

CCPD share that they want people to come out and have a fun spring break, but to do so in a safe and responsible way.

Keeping a close eye on spring breakers is crucial for lifeguards and officers. Many folks can find these workers along with other agencies patrolling the area.

Lifeguards say they realize how visitors may come to the beach but not understand certain water dangers like rip currents.

Beach rescue want people to stay informed on how water conditions will play out before you go into the beach waters.
