  SHIP BOTTOM – The ferry service is starting up again on July 4, but there will be some new rules based on social distancing.

  The ferry will start its summer schedule on July 4. It runs from the Tuckerton Seaport to the Beach Haven Taylor Avenue Municipal Dock on weekends. The ferry is a covered pontoon boat. During the trip, the ferry service will educate riders on the importance of protecting the local water system. It will be running Saturdays, Sundays, and Mondays until Labor Day.

  Only eight passengers will be allowed on board at one time, and everyone will be maintaining six feet of social distance between the crew and people not in your group.

  The fee is $25 roundtrip for two people.
