1. never go into the mudflats alone
2. inform yourself about the tides and plan enough time for your way back. At high tide, the tideways are first filled with strong currents. Even experienced swimmers should never try to swim through a tidal channel. If there is still a tidal channel between you and the mainland after low tide, please start your way back immediately.
3. depressions, tideways, holes, mussel fields, steep edges and silt fields can become life-threatening, if one does not know the pitfalls. (danger of sinking into mud zones; cuts)
4. only go into the mudflats during the day and when the weather is good and visibility is good. Never go into the mudflats in twilight, darkness, storm and fog. The stay in the life-threatening.
5. wear suitable clothing against sunburn, sunstroke, but also against cooling off in the wind. Apply plenty of sun cream and headgear.
6 If fog suddenly appears, do not wander aimlessly, but try to find your way to the coast by following your footsteps. Call out loud for help!
7 In thunderstorms, entering the tidal flat is life-threatening!
8. inform someone before you go into the tidal flat. It is best to take a mobile phone with you.
9. remember a prominent point on the mainland to have a landmark for your return.
