The National Sea Rescue Institute in Hartenbos and Victoria Bay have warned of strong rip currents in the Southern Cape. 

This is after two children and a 60-year-old man were caught in rip currents in Mossel Bay.  Fortunately all three were rescued and were not injured. 

NSRI Spokesperson Craig Lambinon said we are asking people to be of the dangers of rip currents and also for parents to educate their children on the dangers of rip currents.

Lambinon said spring tide happens at new moon and again at full moon every month, causing a higher than normal high tide and a lower than normal low tide hence the stronger than normal rip currents.
