In Huntington Beach, there is always aquatic risk. Please check in with a lifeguard prior to swimming. Our department determines aquatic risk factors based on ocean conditions.
The stingray activity is determined by how many people have been stung by stingrays on that day. When more than two beachgoers have been stung by a stingray at the same tower location a purple indicator will appear in front of the tower. The stingray activity dial adjusts based on the total stingray incidents for the entire beach.
