Their stand up paddle boards have lights on them at night. Awesome!

This is a great place to come by yourself or to bring your family. The prices are very reasonable compared to other attractions at the beach.

Much like the surrounding business that have... More

My first time trying this out. It was a very positive experience. Quick and thorough lesson gets you up and paddling in no time. Water is very shallow (up to the hips, approximately) so it is very safe and stress free. Want to try out the sailboats next season. Also, prices were very reasonable and staff was super nice. 5...

Friendly staff and great prices for all non powered water sports. The staff was component and very helpful. Many options for rent such as paddleboards, sail boards and kayaks. A great way for the family to spend time on the bay.

Our family of four decided we should try stand up paddle boarding and could not have had a better experience than we did with 48th St Watersports. We received good instruction on the beach, had nice equipment to use for our hour rental, and the route for our paddle was great, along the edge of the bay paddling north up... More

My wife and I wanted to rent kayaks for an afternoon and found this place. Convenient location, plenty of parking, and a helpful staff. They gave a a rout to take that would take the full hour and they were right,

We had a great time at 48th Street Watersports. Beautiful location on a bay beach. We enjoyed standing out on the bay on the Paddle Boards. My daughters were taught to windsurf and loved it. We kayaked into a Marsh area and were able to get close to an egret and watch it fish. The staff are great and provide... More

Great experience! We went to the 67th St. location, I had made reservations that morning, and was not at all disappointed. Brooks was very informative, and attentive. He gave us a quick lesson on land and then helped us get going on the water. You can tell he has been doing it a long time. I was extremely impressed and... More
