Swimmers of all experience levels need to take precautions because of the power of the ocean currents.
Aspiring marine biologist Heather Barnes of Woodbury was swept out to sea off the coast of Honduras at around dawn on Friday.
Barnes, a college student from the New College of Florida, went snorkeling at around dawn on Friday to collect coral samples for a class project. Barnes, 20, had been snorkeling and studying the islands of Cayos Cochinos for three weeks, according to WPVI.
She was wearing a wetsuit and fins.
