Janis was very helpful answering our questions before booking a kayak for rental and delivery for the first time. Delivery was on time and appreciated the inclusion of well-fitting life jackets. Now that we have done this for the first time will now know for next time to request securing ropes and locks in the notes section. Would rent from them again.

My girls and I were looking for something to do for a few hours before heading to the airport to return home from vacation. While scanning the internet for things to do in Dewey Beach I ran across Delmarva Board Sport Adventures. I gave them a call and asked if they had any rentals available for a couple of hours on short notice and they said absolutely. When we arrived we were greeted by a young woman who took us right to where we needed to be. The woman who took our payment was very nice. Both of my girls were a little nervous and she really made them feel good about it. She even took out her phone to show them some pictures of a sea turtle that had come ashore on their beach. The equipment was great and the bay was clear. Our last few hours in DE were a lot of fun. I recommend Delmarva Board Sport Adventures to anyone wanting to make some good memories.

We've used Delmarva Board Sport Adventures for several years to take a quick and easy row in the bay. They are always very accomodating and ready to make our experience the best it can be. The equipment is always in great shape and safety comes first. The location is very convenient to get to, too.

George is a spectacular guide and was very personable while we were paddleboarding. Janis was very welcoming and tremendous to talk to and work with in booking the excursion and before and after the excursion. I highly recommend their tours. We had an awesome time! Janis rebooked us when she found out about the winds from the approaching storm, and was concerned about our experience with the waves. The water in the bay that we were rebooked to was choppy but we still had fun!

My daughters and I used your services last year to go Kayaking, the weather turned a little on us but everyone was great and we had a great time in spite of the weather. This year I asked my daughters what they wanted to do and they wanted to try paddleboarding so of course I said yes and of course I contacted Delmarva Board Sport Adventures to set it up. It took 10 minutes online to set it up and when we arrived, I was greeted by name. All of the staff is amazing in making sure that we are safe, and they take the time to answer all questions we have without feeling rushed. It was a beautiful day on the water and the time with my daughters was priceless and thanks to Delmarva Board Sports everything was perfect and the memories will last forever.

I was in charge of setting up a weekend bachelorette party last weekend. I called Delmarva Board Sport to make a reservation for everyone to kayak. The person who took our call was so helpful, once she found out it was a bachelorette she spent 15 minutes telling me all kinds of things to do in the area without me even having to ask. When we arrived at the facility they had a gift bag for the bride which really made her feel special. Overall everyone was so nice and helpful and it’s located at a beachfront bar which was so much fun to go to after we kayaked. 10/10 recommend this place and will be back this summer when I’m there with my family for vacation!

We were very excited about renting kayaks! We received an email about where to go in terms of them being near the hotel, but did not read it as well as we should have. Our fault.. But you park right next to their stand, so I really don't see why you should have to pay extra money to park in a spot that really should be included in the rent of the boards. So my sister and I showed up (we're in our 30s) with our two small/medium dogs. The woman behind the counter was so rude. She honestly ruined the entire experience for us. We were a little late due to the parking situation, but we did call to let them know. She was rude about that, rude about the life vests too. My sister is tiny and she asked for a kids life vest and she was told there would be an extra charge for that. ?!?! Then, I asked for an extra life vest for my small dog to sit on so she didn't get wet and I was RUDELY (again) informed that I would need to pay $5 extra because there were a lot of people scheduled and they would need the vests. Well I did not pay the extra... I felt bad for the team working with her. They were all so kind and you could tell she must be very hard to work with. The younger guy took my sister and I out to the kayaks and was very kind and even helped push us on out with our pups. We felt nervous the entire time about being charged extra for things, so we ended up only staying out until our original time which was about 40 minutes later. She really unhinged us and ruined our paddling.... so we came back and low and behold, there were just as many life vests there as when we left. Not sure why she would have needed to charge us extra for the oh so many people that were coming, when they were all still there.. but whatever. If it weren't for the kind kids that worked there, I would say avoid at all cost, but because of them, this has two stars instead of 0 which is what I would have given that rude woman. Seriously.. customer service people.. we weren't asking for much.

Hi Snojewl, We remember your party vividly! I'm sorry our very detailed email confirmation with clear parking instructions was not reviewed by your party. Your party arrived late (20 minutes late as you are to arrive 15 minutes early) and from our perspective, your group was stressed out to the max upon arrival because you were late. Our confirmation has clear instructions that we are in a PARKMOBILE location and it suggests to download and configure the APP before arrival. These instructions are clearly noted on our website too. If you're late, your time must be cut short as we have other reservations behind you for our equipment and it wouldn't be fair to them. All beach towns charge for parking. It's how beach towns generate revenue to pay all the public services required for the huge influx of visitors (emergency services, water, sewage, beach replenishment, etc). We are pet friendly, but you expected us to provide 2 additional human life vests so your dogs could lay on them in the kayaks. We provide appropriate sized life vests for humans at no charge, but it's our policy that extra vests cost money. I'm sorry, but we can not allow your dogs to lay on our life vests used by guests; especially since you were allowing your dogs to dig up salt marsh on the bayside beach. It would have been appropriate for you to bring your own pillow or towel for your dog to lay on in our kayaks. I agree with you on two points: 1. our employees are great. 2. perhaps another kayak provider would better suit your family's needs in the future.

Tom was a phenomenal instructor. 2 hour first time windsurfers and they were up on the boards even in very windy conditions. My girlfriend since took her teens and they loved it too. Since they are local, they also gave great reviews on local seafood restaurants. Very worth it!

George is a gem! My wife and I had our first stand-up paddle boarding (SUP) experience, and were ushered into the waters by the very friendly, very knowledgable George of Delmarva Board Sports. My wife was quite apprehensive at first, and hasn't the best balance nor confidence on the water, but George brought plenty of calm and care to the learning process. At the end we might have taken a dip or two, due to our own bit of nerves, but after that we were golden for the next 45min. Conversation and exploration went swimmingly. It's also well worth mentioning that when George peered at the weather forecast and wind report, he notified us well before our meet up time, to suggest that we change our meet-up location to their alternate dock on the river in Milton. This way we could avoid being knocked about and cast to the see every 2 minutes, as winds on the seas are quite a different animal than those betwixt the trees on the river. We were grateful for that quick decision, as it allowed us novices to stay upright and enjoy ourselves. This was well worth it!

The people who run this rental service are super: helpful and kind. The tiki hut launch area is hand decorated with love, and the equipment is new and great quality. The trips around the bay are good for beginners, and interesting enough for more advanced riders. We went a few times.
