Staying safe in different places to swim...
Lakes and Lagoons...
Lakes and lagoons can look calm, but there can be a strong current under the water that is hard to see. It can also be hard to see sunken objects, tree trunks and large rocks, so never dive into a lake. Enter carefully, feet first and slowly. It can get deep very suddenly so don't rush in.
Rivers usually have faster moving water and this can be dangerous, especially if you are not a strong swimmer. Rivers often have water flowing over jagged or sharp rocks and the water may become suddenly deeper.
Swimming pools are a great option for those who are not strong swimmers but make sure you always check how deep the water is before you jump in. Children should never be left alone in or near a pool, even if there are lifeguards present. Pools can get very busy and children can easily become lost or get into trouble without being noticed.
All beaches are unique and the conditions can be different from day to day. It is always important to know what dangers exist at the beach and learn about the conditions. The safest place to swim at a beach is between the red and yellow flags where lifesavers and lifeguards are patrolling.
Ocean's pools can be a great alternative to swimming in the open ocean at the beach. Ocean pools can vary in depth so it is aways important to check how deep the pool is before entering. During big tides and swells ocean pools can also be covered over by water so always check the conditions before going for a swim.
