Guardians of the Barnegat Shoals

Brief History

Perhaps one of the most treacherous of New Jersey's barrier island inlets, this central coast area suffered nearly 200 shipwrecks within a ten year period during the 1840s.

Today, the crew of Coast Guard Station, Barnegat Light provides assistance to boaters who have trouble navigating the strong waves and shifting sands of the inlet.
