This place is a definite if you want to kayak during your stay in Ocean City. The prices are great, and the staff is very helpful and friendly. Definitely call ahead and make reservations, and try to go as early in the day as possible to avoid the heat! Small sealed drinks are also allowed on the kayaks. Beautiful view... More

This place is tucked behind a hotel. Parking is actually at the hotel. We rented kayaks and enjoyed out paddling. The water here is more open bay, so the current the day we were out was quite strong. There is not as much wildlife to see as other bay locations, but it was still pleasant. They folks working here were... More

We would like to thank you for visiting us and thanks for your review. We have a perfect launch spot with a walk in sandy hard bottom location. It's super shallow so new people to paddle boarding can get their balance and have an instructor coach them as they get on the boards. We do have other locations to see... More

Great experience. We went stand up paddle boarding for the first time and received a complementary lesson and had a fun time. We payed for an hour and came back a bit early so they asked if we wanted to try something else, so we took a 2 seater kayak out. Very nice staff and location.

Great time! No reservation was needed. Staff was helpful and the experience was positive. The price was also fair at $20 per hour. Options for kayaking and boating in addition to SUP.

We traveled here hoping to do the eco kayak tour that is featured on their website only to be informed that the eco tours only go out of their 67th street paddle cove. They did make us a reservation for a tour later that day; however, the price on the website of $25 was incorrect, it is actually $35 per... More

We sincerely apologize, it was never our intention to mislead anybody. Our website has been changed. Thank you for bringing it to our attention, a phone call would have worked too. Glad you had a great time. That's why we moved it to are 67th Street location. A perfect Eco Tour haven. Thank you and hope to see you soon. More

One of the highlights of out trip to OC. My kids loved it. It's a great location and the staff did a great job of getting the kids and myself going on paddle boards. Logan was great getting my 9 year old daughter paddling like a pro. Thanks to Mike and his team for a great experience. We'll be back... More

Had a lot of fun, the instructor was really helpful and enthusiastic. She was able to get me to actually balance on the paddle board, nothing I would expect myself to be capable of. Overall a very positive little outing!
