Lifeguard Program at Hueneme Beach

lifeguards with truckSummertime lifeguard service begins at Hueneme Beach on Memorial Day Weekend and continues on weekends until mid-June. Daily lifeguard service begins at the end of June and continues through Labor Day. Lifeguards are on duty from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m.

All beach-goers are urged to swim near a staffed lifeguard tower and don't swim by yourself. Make sure someone is with you in the water.

The City also provides a Junior Lifeguard Program for boys and girls ages 9 to 16.

Flag System

The lifeguards use a color-coded flag system to signal ocean conditions for beach goers. Each tower will fly the appropriate flag which identifies the surf conditions at that specific time:
