Swim at lifeguarded beaches
Sea creatures you may encounter include seasonal stinging jellyfish and sea lice, pinching crabs, and occasional schools of fish that can bite, like bluefish. Shark sightings are very rare, but they do live in the ocean and bay.
Wading and Walking
Use caution as you're walking along the shoreline or in the surf zone. You may wish to wear water shoes to protect your feet from broken shells or other submerged hazards in or near the water. You should stay clear of any marine mammals that are stranded on the beach; never touch them.
Lifeguards clean the guarded beach on a daily basis during the summer, but debris may wash up or become uncovered during the night.
Remember that no wake is allowed in the marinas.
