Sea Conditions

The Emergency Planning Department would like to inform the public that a north- westerly swell is forecast for St Helena from Sunday, 3 November 2019. This may result in a large sea swell and breakers in James Bay and Rupert’s Bay.

The public is asked to use caution when accessing the Seafront area. To avoid damage to vehicles, drivers are asked to take care when parking near the safety rails.

Due care and attention should be taken when swimming in Rupert’s and James Bay during this time.

If you have any ocean activities i.e. dolphin watching, fishing, diving etc booked from 3 November, please liaise with your local provider who will advise if this weather warning will affect their operations.

Port Control will be monitoring sea conditions and may restrict access to the Seafront, Wharf and Rupert’s Jetty areas if necessary.
