P.E.I National Park Declared Dangerous For Swimmers And Surfers


Parks Canada has issued a warning, telling surfers and swimmers that Prince Edward Island National Park is not safe. For the third day in a row Parks Canada has warned the swimmers and surfers of the potential for rip currents on the north shore.

Rip currents move swiftly away from the shore and pose a real danger for those who want to spend time in the water. Swimmers and surfers can be swept offshore and trapped in the water.

Parks Canada’s advisory said:

“To ensure visitor safety; entering the water is not recommended.”

According to Parks Canada’s warning, anyone caught in a rip current should stay calm and try to attract attention while keeping afloat. Also, swimming parallel to shore out of the current is advised.
