Beware of rip currents

Rip currents are powerful, narrow channels of water moving quickly away from shore. They occur on all beaches and may happen at any time. Before you hit the beach, learn how to recognize a rip current and how to escape if caught in one.

Know your location

You may not always know the address of your location or how to instruct others to find you. With the what3words app, your location anywhere in the world can be pinpointed within a 10-foot square. Using this app, you can find, share and navigate to precise locations using three simple words. And while there are many ways to use the app, some of the best uses within Orange Beach include:

  • helping emergency services find you
  • finding your way back to your parking space
  • helping others find you at a festival or event
  • for trail navigation
