Six Miles At Sea, Long Beach Island's comprehensive film history, is based on historian and writer John Bailey Lloyd’s two engaging companion books, Eighteen Miles of History and Six Miles at Sea. This video documentary vividly details more than two hundred years of local history: From the barren beaches where cattle once roamed to the expansive marshlands that served as hunting ground and playground to the most wealthy, influential men of the post-Civil War era; from Philadelphia Quakers to New York entrepreneurs; from Tucker’s Island to Barnegat Lighthouse, from stage coach to Tuckerton Railroad to Model T; from bright days and glorious nights at grand hotels to the tragedy of shipwrecks and unforgiving storms ... Six Miles At Sea iis a rich history that both entertains and informs.

Within the film, John Bailey Lloyd captivates by sharing historical accounts and details gained from years of research and Guil Fisher, former director of Beach Haven’s Surflight Theatre, narrates throughout. Diaries, personal stories, archival and family photographs and other long-forgotten images — with period music played exclusively by local musicians — add to this extraordinarily moving portrait of a grand old island.
