Seaville is an unincorporated community located within Upper Township in Cape May County, New Jersey, United States.[2]

Seaville is home to the only yellow fire trucks in Cape May County, a tradition started in 1985 when the Seaville Fire Rescue Company was purchasing a new vehicle and thought that federal regulations would require the color.[3] Since being formed in 1964 and purchasing its first fire truck a year later, the Seaville company has served the area, responding to over 200 calls a year from its fire station which is located on Route 50 across from Dino's Seaville Diner.[4]
