There's a warning going out about the dangers of swimming in harbours.

It causes concern for the Coastguard and harbour officials each summer, especially when the weather is good and youngsters are off school.

The Harbours Division says it's worried that people aren't aware of the dangers of boats manoeuvring, the shock of jumping into cold water and the hazard of not knowing how deep the water is.

Captain Mike Brew wants to highlight the risks.[play media file below]
