Safer Navarre Beach is a beach safety and education project sponsored and managed by Rotary Club of Navarre and its’ Members.
Since 2010, 7 people have drowned on Navarre Beach in the unguarded area that is now covered by rescue tube stations. In two instances, the victim of drowning was attempting to rescue a swimmer in distress.
Rescue tubes have shown to be effective in helping both swimmers in distress and the Samaritan attempting to assist them in reaching the beach safely.
Rotary Club of Navarre has installed Rescue Tube Stations at all Navarre Beach public beach access points to the Gulf of Mexico to help make Navarre Beach safer for all visitors.
Each rescue tube is attached with three quick release Velcro straps and comes equipped with a 12 foot shoulder strap. Please watch the video below for instructions on use. Instructions are also listed on each tube. These are not toys!
If you see a tube missing, please call (850) 981-8888 and leave a message with the Access # and that a tube is missing.
