Be cognizant of your surroundings, remind Oak Bay police, after a paddleboarder was rescued from the waters off Oak Bay this afternoon (July 24).
The Coast Guard, who happened to be nearby when they heard the call, intercepted the 32-year-old Mainland resident caught in a current, picked her up and brought her to Oak Bay Marina where emergency services were on hand.
The woman did not require medical treatment. The Coast Guard returned the woman and paddleboard to her car near Willows Beach.
