At this time there have been isolated cases of red tide found in some of our local waters. It is important to note that red tide blooms appear almost every year, though the severity can vary. In order to keep our visitors informed, we encourage you to please check current red tide status updates from Manatee County Parks and Natural Resource, or see additional red tide resources below.

Extreme Weather & Storm Circumstances
Lifeguards on our area beaches are trained to watch for lightning and will close the beach when it is determined that it is a threat. You will hear a whistle blast and see a double red flag on the lifeguard tower letting you know it is time to stay out of the water and seek shelter.
For the latest information on any given case of extreme weather, visit the Bradenton Area Emergency Planning page for the latest updates on any current emergency situation.
