Their last day on the stand coincides with the last day of Sunfest, which by the way if you haven't been, is a great festival to celebrate the end of the summer season!

Hey Robert, they usually go off around the 3rd weekend of September. Please do not go in the ocean without lifeguards present. Just a word of caution so you and your family can enjoy your stay in OC!

The beach patrol ends their season every year on the last day of the Sunfest Festival in September.  This year, the date is September 22, 2019.

They are technically off duty after Sunfest - that Sunday is their last day.  But the number of lifeguards stands on the beach shrinks beginning around the end of August.  Stands may be 3 or 4 blocks apart later in the season.  If you swim, just swim in front of the lifeguard.

The Ocean City Beach Patrol is on duty everyday from the Saturday of Memorial Day weekend (25 May 2019) through the Sunday when Sunfest ends (22 September 2019).
