This is a hidden gem! We absolutely loved this spot. Great location, reasonable prices and awesome staff. Jacob, Will and Evan were outstanding! They were personable, helpful and professional. It was obvious that they love what they do!

I would highly recommend this company to anyone looking for a water sports experience!

We had never rented kayaks here before, but we will be back. We kayak regularly on lakes and rivers in our home state, and let me tell you kayaking on salt water (even though it is the bay) is way different (much more work when going against the current/wind) but awesome. We saw a lot of crabs and other marine life. Can't wait to do it again!

I'm so glad we got a sailboat here! We have an O'Day daysailer that we keep on a lake in mn and have been sailing for a couple years, so we thought it would be extra fun to sail in Ocean city. We had to call ahead to make sure the conditions would be good on the day we wanted, and were given some warnings about what would be different about this sailing from what we were used to. We paid for the extra training session so that I could get accustomed to a catamaran and he was super helpful and patient. He also gave detailed information about with distribution and what kind of boat traffic to watch out for. We ended up having a great time going back and forth across the bay for an hour. I don't think the conditions would be good for a brand new sailor but if you have a little bit of experience you should be able to handle this boat.
