Shipmates is an American syndicated television show that ran for two seasons from 2001 to 2003.

Reruns later ran on the cable channel Spike TV. The show was created by Hurricane Entertainment and the executive producer was John Tomlin. Chris Hardwick was the host. Participants in the show were sent on a blind date on a Carnival Cruise ship, with camera crews following the couple around the clock.

Many of the dates ended with one of the participants throwing a drink in their partner's face. The occurrence was so common that a group of students at Bowling Green State University dubbed the act of drink throwing as "Shipmating". For example, "Rosie was so pissed at Kyle that he shipmated him at Sky Bar."
