Cape May Point Beach Patrol

Since its founding in 1910, the Cape May Point Beach Patrol has experienced continual improvement in terms of services provided, preventative lifeguarding tactics, quality of personnel, and competitive efforts. We are the smallest beach patrol in the South Jersey Lifeguard Chief’s Association, yet our performance is equal to that of any patrol.


Cape May Point Beach Tags

Beach Tags Required: Everyone 12 and over must have a beach tag to access any Cape May Point Beach from the 3rd Saturday in June through Labor Day.
