Los Angeles Ocean & Beach Lifeguards



Southern California ocean lifeguards are our flagship operations covering regions from Orange County to Santa Barbara. With no other companies offering specifically Southern California ocean lifeguards for private beaches/resorts or events on beaches, there is only one choice so look no further. Unlike our pool lifeguard competitors, ocean lifeguard operations is not an area that is easy to get into or desired. This is an area that is specialized and requires an experienced staff to run operations. Don’t be fooled by other providers! There is a difference by way of training and disciplines. It is no wonder why we are the number one requested provider for event planners, non-profits and even governmental agencies in the Southern California region.

Golden State Lifeguards is proud to announce that it will be seeking accreditation from USLA (United States Lifeguard Association) as a certified Ocean Lifeguard Agency in Summer 2024.

Never allow other companies to attempt to sell you on pool lifeguards to do the job of ocean lifeguards!


Our Southern California ocean lifeguard operations is run similarly to that of any municipal agency such as Los Angeles County Lifeguards, Los Angeles City Lifeguards or even State of California lifeguard division. We must abide by all guidelines established by the governing bodies responsible for certifying basic agencies and advanced lifeguard agencies. Additionally our lifeguard staff must attend in-service training to refresh all lifesaving skills.

Many of our lifeguards are dually certified Lifeguard/EMT’s and Lifeguard/Paramedics. We operate at the BLS level (basic lifesaving) and are trained to provide medical care on scene of any emergency until fire units, lifeguard units or law enforcement units arrive on scene. Our ocean lifeguards are fully uniformed and equipped according to company policies and SOP’s.
