The National Weather Service has issued a high surf advisory for the Point Reyes National Seashore from today through Saturday morning.

The largest waves will begin to move into the surf zone later this afternoon. In particular, west facing beaches such as McClures Beach, Kehoe Beach, Point Reyes Beach North, and Point Reyes Beach South could be affected by this dangerous wave activity.

Waves are expected to have long lulls between each set of waves. This may increase the risk of being washed off of the beach by sneaker waves. There may also be strong rip currents associated with these waves.

Be sure to always have your eyes on the ocean.
