Make Your Summer Count

Our leadership team handpicks the most impressive team members to return season after season growing our team of over 60 lifeguards, located in the heart of Myrtle Beach.

“I take pride in this operation and I’m not going to put anyone out there that I don’t feel is up to the task of saving lives.”

– Nick Jackson of John’s Beach Service quoted by WBTW

High Standards & Qualifications

All of our lifeguards are trained according to the standards of the United States Lifesaving Association. Lifeguards receive an initial 40 hours of training and subsequently train weekly to constantly improve their skills and abilities.

Every lifeguard must be at least 17 years old and able to swim 500 meters in less than 10 minutes, have current certifications in Lifesaving, First Aid and CPR, but above all have quality character and take pride in their work.

Our Emergency Response Team consists of our most experienced, dedicated lifeguards. This elite group commits to monitoring the beach after normal hours from 5pm to 7pm to add an extra layer to beach safety.
