No chance against the current

A story by Alfred | Mexico | 26.09.2023

"During my last 6-week holiday I was in Mexico, Huatulco, about 500 km south of Acapulco. I was there because of the numerous beaches, my favourite was Playa Chahue, directly in the town of Huatulco, thus easy to reach on foot or by bike, and the beach also has the Blue Flag. The only disadvantage: 1-2 times a week there quite big waves and current.
Since the Mexicans themselves were not deterred by these conditions, I also swam my laps several times, no further than 100 metres from the shore.
Unfortunately, however, it did happen... While I was snorkeling, I was unintentionally dragged further out. I only noticed this when I lifted my head out of the water again after a few minutes. There was a current out there which I didn't feel at all for the first 100 metres. When I noticed it, and of course that I was barely getting off the spot, I triggered my Restube and waved with the bouy to get a local fishing boat’s attention. The fisherman set course and came closer and during this time I was able to stay afloat nicely and relatively relaxed, despite the situation.
I am so glad that I had bought Restube before the holiday!"
