The Horton and Port Eynon lifeboat was launched to rescue them from Worm's Head yesterday afternoon.

Ollie the dog's passion for chasing balls ended with him needing rescue by the RNLI.
He and his owner had been out for a walk on a spot known locally as Rocky Coast about a mile west of Holyhead RNLI lifeboat station.
He had been chasing a ball and mistook a lobster pot buoy for a ball and swam out to try and retrieve it but got his chest harness and collar stuck.
Holyhead RNLI’s volunteer inshore lifeboat crew found the dog, which had been stuck on the buoy for about 20 minutes, tired and beginning to struggle to keep his head above water.
As the lifeboat approached Ollie, he turned his head to face the boat, which freed him from the buoy and despite being tired he was able to swim back to shore, under a watchful escort from the lifeboat crew.

Lifeguards from the Royal National Lifeboat Institution (RNLI) will be on duty in Denbighshire for the first time this summer.
Starting in May, two beaches will be patrolled by a new seasonal service run in partnership between the RNLI and Denbighshire County Council.
For many years the council has employed lifeguards in Rhyl and Prestatyn beaches.
Now the RNLI, which already operates lifeguards on 32 beaches in Wales and more than 220 across the UK, will run the service after a partnership with the Council was approved by Cabinet Members.
Last year our lifeguards assisted more than 900 people on 32 beaches in Wales and we are really pleased to begin working with Denbighshire County Council to provide a lifeguard service at Rhyl and Prestatyn.
Our lifeguards will build on the council’s good work and provide a safety service fitting for these two popular beaches.
