All new season of “Durban Beach Rescue” premiered on Travel Channel (DSTV 179) on Monday, 27th November at 8:00pm.
We were thrilled when Travel Channel commissioned a second season. There are a lot of heroes on TV but these lifeguards -men and women- are the real deal. They risk their lives on a daily basis to keep our beaches safe. This new season is “bigger and better than ever.” Like the highly-rated season one, it features life or death moments, dramatic rescues and out-of-control crowds. Not to mention a team of elite lifeguards in peak physical condition and a nice assortment of beachfront eye-candy in every episode.
“Durban Beach Rescue is a glossy high octane production. This is the real-life ‘Baywatch’.”
Thanks to the latest state-of-the-art filming technology that allows cameras to swoop, dive and come at the action from every angle, this season features even more exciting incidents. There’s the shark feeding frenzy that panics the bathers; the capture of a runaway crocodile; an invasion by the stinging Portuguese Men of War; a lifeguard going ‘undercover’ to trap a predator preying on innocent bathers. And dramatic rescues– including a kite surfer out of his depth; a family trapped on a secluded beach… as the high tide rushes in; and a young woman who, despite the lifeguards’ warnings, goes for a midnight swim, unprotected and alone. In order to save her life, every second will count.
