Dangerous Currents

Learning about potential hazards before hitting the water can save your life. Dangerous currents occur throughout the Great Lakes and can pull a swimmer away from the shore. Swimming directly against currents, along piers or breakwalls can be deadly. Also, attempting to rescue others without a flotation device can result in drowning.
