From a fishing community to today…
In its early days, Sea Isle City had a thriving commercial fishing industry and attracted many recreational fishermen. Shacks were built as a place to store gear and sleep overnight. Eventually, the anglers brought their families and replaced the fishing shacks with summer cottages. Today, Sea Isle City is a thriving year-round coastal community built by families seeking a quality of life unsurpassed by many. From breathless moments of timeless solitude to moments of extreme exhileration, the sea in all of its abundance entices you to its shores and never fails to satisfy your passion for which you answered its call.
