Large waves and dangerous rip-currents could create unsafe conditions for small-craft operators and these conditions may become even more adverse at times of high tide. Sea-bathers are also advised to stay out of the water.

High tide times are expected on Wednesday around 10:47 pm; Thursday around 11:01 am and 11:27 pm; Friday around 11:53 am; Saturday around 12:11 am and 12:45 pm            

A Small-Craft Warning means in this case that winds of  20 – 25 knots (37- 46km/h) or greater and seas equal to or greater than 3 metres (10ft) are forecast to affect the marine area.

A High-Surf Advisory is issued when breaking wave action poses a threat to life and property within the surf zone.
