Hi Frank,

It is a bit of a hit or miss thing but they are every 3 blocks or so until SunFest which is the third week in September.  

Enjoy OC!

They are practically on every other block, so you won't need to walk very far to find one. Good call though, I always like to pick a spot near a lifeguard!

Post Labor Day, there will still be lifeguards on duty every 3 blocks or so for the entire length of the beach up to 144th St.  They remain on duty until the Sunday of Sunfest weekend which will be September 22, 2019.  As for specific numbers, I can't give you that. But you can trust that there will be lifeguards there to help you if you need them. They come on duty around 10 a.m and will be there until 5 or 5:30 p.m. daily.

It depends on their staffing, but there are lifeguards about every 3 to 5 blocks.  Just make sure you locate yourself in front of one if you are swimming.  We set up on our regular block, then walk down to swim in front of the lifeguard.

The lifeguards remain on duty for the entire stretch of OC's beaches (From the inlet ot Delaware state line at 146th Street) from the Saturday before Memorial Day until the Sunday of Sunfest weekend (this year that is 22 September 2019). After Labor Day they are a little more spread out, but the whole beach remains covered.
