Back bay waverunner.
A Waverunner cruises through a creek in the back bay--another way to "Get out on the water!" 
 
DOLPHINS EVERYDAY! Most beachgoers have been treated to frequent dolphin sightings this year. Pods of dolphins--either playing or feeding--have been spotted just outside the surf line nearly every day this summer. Their presence is usually credited to good water conditions and abundant sources of food. Whether you're walking the beach, swimming in the surf, or sitting in your chair, keep an eye on the water just beyond the surf. Chances are you'll spot a pod of dolphins working their way along the beach!
 
GET OUT ON THE WATER: WAVERUNNER RENTALS! With a cool breeze in your face and an occasional splash of spray, nothing quite matches the exhilaration of zipping across the surface of the water on a hot summer day! Waverunners can be rented from nearly a dozen locations in Cape May County, including Island Water Sports at 97th & the bay in Stone Harbor.
 
A 70 PERCENT REDUCTION in fire sirens is anticipated in Avalon after Mayor Martin Pagliughi announced new guidelines for the sounding of the fire siren throughout the borough. After working with the fire department and the borough, Mayor Pagliughi issued an executive order silencing the sirens for routine calls that rarely result in a true emergency, such as fire/smoke/carbon monoxide alarms. Sirens will still sound for actual fires, landing zone assignments, motor vehicle accidents and water rescues.
 
STONE HARBOR STORIES: The Stone Harbor Museum has assembled a collection of stories and videos chronicling various aspects of the borough's history. Photographs, video interviews, and short articles cover a variety of topics ranging from the opening of Stone Harbor Boulevard to boat races on the back bay. The stories offer a glimpse into the past, documenting what it was like here on the island decades ago.
