Sudden high waves can happen even on calm and sunny days. All visitors must be mindful of the dangers of the waters surrounding Peggy’s Cove. Read on for safety tips while visiting Peggy’s Cove.

BE AWARE OF SLIPPING HAZARD NEAR THE SHORE
The rocks by the water are often very slippery, even on clear days. Any combination of rain, wind and waves can give rocks a darker or black colour and rocks can become more slippery when wet.
Keep away from all rocks near the water’s edge to stay safe and be extra mindful of slippery dark-coloured rocks. If you fall in the water, it is unlikely you will be able to get back out and the unique landscape and environment makes rescue very difficult.
