Longport Beach Patrol

Chief - Dan Adams     Captain - Matt Kelm

Beach Patrol Headquarters is located in the Community Building located at 33rd and Atlantic Avenues


The Longport Beach Patrol is gearing up for another wonderful summer season. Various sections of the beach will begin to open on June 18. Please note that all Guarded Bathing Beaches are open from 10am until 6pm on each day of operation.

Beach patrons are reminded to swim only near a lifeguard during guarded bathing beaches hours of operation. Please follow the direction of your lifeguards. They are trained professionals and have experience and are knowledgeable of the ocean water conditions. Pay close attention to the "Beach Warning Flags" atop the lifeguard stands. They are posted as a guidance system based on the current ocean water conditions:


Green ~ Safe,

Yellow ~ Caution,

Red - Hazardous, and

Red with No Swimming Sign - Bathing Restricted - No Swimming.


The Longport Beach Patrol will be once again running the Lifeguard Explorer Program. This Program will run for four weeks, three days per week and is open to all Longport residents ages 12 - 15. If anyone is interested in this program please contact Beach Patrol Headquarters on or after May 29,2011.


Please don't forget your beach badges. Badges are required for all beach patrons over the age of 12. Beach inspectors are required to check everyone for beach badges, please have them with you when you come to the beach.


Help keep Longport's beaches as beautiful as they have always been, place all trash and recyclables in appropriate receptacles. Longport’s Public Works Department takes great pride in keeping our beaches clean and well groomed, please help to do the same.


The Longport Beach Patrol is looking forward to the Summer of 2012 and seeing everybody once again. Remember to always swim at guarded beaches during beach hours of operation. Safe Beaches are Happy Beaches.
