The borough of Ship Bottom, in Ocean County, New Jersey, was originally incorporated in 1925 as the borough of Ship Bottom-Beach Arlington, which was shortened in 1947. Ship Bottom is located on Long Beach Island, and borders the Atlantic Ocean. The borough is sometimes referred to as the “Gateway to Long Beach Island,” because Route 72 provides the only access from Manahawkin, ending in Ship Bottom as it crosses Manahawkin Bay. Because of the heavy tides off Ship Bottom, its coast is dotted with shipwrecks.
