ensure effective means of communication at sea

In the unlikely event that you are swept away, rescue will be delayed if there is no means of communication. Turn on location information on your smartphone and put it in a waterproof pack and carry it with you.

Check weather and sea conditions in advance

Be sure to check weather and sea conditions before heading out to sea. If there is a possibility that the waves will suddenly rise or the wind will become strong, change your plans or cancel your trip.
