Safety

  • Never swim, dive or snorkle alone.

  • Don’t swim at night.

  • Don’t dive into shallow water.

  • Wear sunscreen and apply often.

  • Drink extra water to avoid dehydration.

  • Don’t touch coral reefs.

  • Watch where you step.
    Touching fire coral or a sea urchin will cause intense burning. If you do come in contact, wash with soap and water. Vinegar, rubbing alcohol and meat tenderizer may help soothe pain.

  • Watch for predatory fish.
    Barracudas are the most commonly seen predatory fish, but if you don't startle or threaten them, after they have satisfied their curiosity about you, they will usually move on.

  • Motor slowly.
    Be watchful of swimmers, snorkelers and scuba divers.

  • Watch what you eat.
    If eating your catch, do not eat internal organs. Large reef fish may carry a harmful form of fish poisoning. Seek medical attention if you experience numbness around the mouth, weakness, vomiting, fever, chills or difficulty with coordination after eating fish.
