RNLI crews at Newgale sprang into action to save a man and a woman caught in a rip current as they went surfing.
The RNLI is warning people who dive off cliffs - also known as 'tombstoning' - that they are risking their lives.
The RNLI has released this video of their efforts to help re-float a minke whale stranded on Pensarn Beach, Abergele. The 20-foot whale was eventually freed and made its way back to open water on Monday evening.
A 20ft minke whale stranded for two hours close to Pensarn beach in Abergele this afternoon has been successfully re-floated.
It swam back out to open sea aided by coastguards and RSPCA officers.
Main and inshore lifeboats from Rhyl were also at the scene.
Coastguards waded chest-deep in the sea and gently prodded it away from the beach.
Volunteers of a lifeboat station on Anglesey have been enjoying a remarkable day - getting to meet up with some of the many people whose lives they have saved or helped over the years. The reason is to show why the RNLI needs a new boathouse at Moelfre.
People who were rescued by the Moelfre RNLI volunteers have launched a fundraising drive for the station to receive a new £9m boathouse for their Tamar class lifeboat.
All of them were rescued by the crews this summer and wanted to launch the appeal as a way of thanking them.
Moelfre RNLI say it was one of their busiest summers on record.
The crew of Rhyl's All-weather and Inshore lifeboats had been out on an exercise for five hours when they were alerted to a 37-foot power motor cruiser that had suffered from engine failure off Abergele.
The vessel was on a passage from Conwy marina to Rhyl, when its engines suddenly stopped working and could not be restarted.
The lifeboat crew were just completing their planned exercise and had to re-launch.
The lifeboat was on the scene within 15 minutes and the cruiser was then towed to Rhyl harbour.
The RNLI in Wales says it had its busiest summer for 24 years. Figures released today show that the number of rescues went up by 43 percent compared to last year.
The busiest station was at Rhyl, which reported that callouts more than doubled in its 150th anniversary year.
Our Correspondent Carole Green reports.

The RNLI in Wales has had its busiest summer in 24 years. Figures released today by the charity show lifeboat launches across Wales between June - August rocketed by 43% compared with summer 2012.

An open-water swimmer from Cork is preparing to swim a distance of almost 50 miles from Ireland to Wales.
Steve Redmond, 48, from Ballydehob, is embarking on the record-breaking challenge to raise funds and awareness for the RNLI.
Weather permitting, he is due to set off tonight from Carnsore Point in Wexford.
He plans to arrive at Whitesands beach at St. Davids Head in Pembrokeshire 35 hours later.
Steve said: “Sadly there have been a number of tragedies off our coast in the last few months and it has brought home to me that while the sea is beautiful, it can also be dangerous.
"I want to do something for the people who volunteer to rescue those in trouble at sea or who have to bring loved ones home when they have lost their lives out there.
"I am very familiar with the work of search and rescue agencies, and in particular the RNLI, and it would be great to raise funds and awareness for them through this swim.”
Jim Phillips, Lifeboat Press Officer for St Davids, said: "Everyone at St Davids will be keeping their fingers firmly crossed for Steve and sending him positive thoughts as he aims for the finish line.
"It will be quite something to witness him coming out of the water in Pembrokeshire and the volunteer crew at St Davids wish him all the very best of luck."
Steve is no stranger to long-distance swims - he became the first man ever to complete the gruelling Seven Oceans Swim, and was the first person to swim around the Fastnet Rock off the Cork coast.
