In order to promote coastal access for everyone, Martin County Ocean Rescue maintains a Beach Wheelchair Program.

Rolling beach wheelchairs are available at the following lifeguard stations:

To use one of our beach wheelchairs, speak to a lifeguard at one of the guard towers. There is a limited supply, and they are available first come, first served at no charge.
