Wells Ocean Rescue maintains lifeguard surveillance for thousands of visitors to our beautiful beaches in Wells from June through September.
The Wells Beach lifeguards serve to insure the safety of the thousands of visitors that come to Wells Beach, Crescent Beach, and Drakes Island every summer. From Memorial Day to Labor Day, guards can be seen patrolling the beaches either by foot or from the lifeguard stands positioned throughout the beach. .
Lifeguards begin guarding the beach daily on July 1st, and the last day of the season each year is Labor Day. Each day begins at 8:30 am with a workout, directed by one member of the leadership team, which lasts until 9:30 am. Guards then have until 10:00 am to get ready and arrive at their designated lifeguard stand. Guards remain on duty until 5:00 pm each day.
