We had a great time on the 90 minute kayak eco tour. Emma was our guide - sweet, knowledgeable and very friendly. Paddled around the bay, saw birds, mussels, fish and a horseshoe crab. My husband and our teenagers came with us - appreciated each having our own kayak. Brought our Go Pro for pics. Highly recommend. Make reservations in advance.

This was my and my family’s first experience paddle boarding. I had three young children with me ages 6, 7 and 10. They shared one board. After the children grew tired of paddle boarding, they decided to swim. The water is about three to four feet deep, even very far out. I decided to let them splash around with their life vests on while I paddled out further on my board. It was awesome. I went out pretty far but never got to a point where I couldn’t stand if I fell off of the board. The water was warm and calm. I visit Ocmd every summer and 48th St Water Sports will be on the agenda for each visit going forward. The staff is friendly, the activities are fun and it is very affordable.

My husband and I took our teenage sons and parents on a paddle boarding glow tour this past weekend. The evening tour began at 8:30, just ask it was getting dark. Our guide was extremely nice, getting us all in the proper life vest and explaining the basics of the sport as well as our intended route along the natural inlets of the bay. They had many sized boards that made it super easy for all of us to balance and paddle. We were out there for about an hour with the boards' lights attracting lots of fish and baby crabs! The air was cooler and there was no traffic to create intimidating waves.. It was a beautiful adventure that we could not have experienced if it wasn't for this tour. Thank you 48th street!
