We used a $5 off coupon from a ubiquitous guide in the area to rent a kayak on a weekday morning. The price was very reasonable, and the staff very friendly. It was not as good of kayaking as we have experienced in other places because there is just not as much to see. The water of the bay is... More

I rented a Stand up paddle board for one day. They delivered it and picked it up the next day. They gave me tips for handling and storing it. A fabulous service and a fabulous time on the water. I will do this again.

This paddleboarding experience was great relaxing time. It was located behind a hotel on a quiet section of the bayside area of ocean city (not far from Seacrets). Jamie was our tour guide/instructor and he made us feel very comfortable and gave us great tips while we were out paddleboarding. Before heading out on the water, Jamie gives a little... More

Jamie was our guide. He made the experience awesome! We headed out through the bay and travelled down the coast and then back up the coast past where we had started. The boards were in super great shape along with the paddles and LED lights on the bottoms. Definitely a great laid back way to close out the evening. My... More

We had an incredible experience at 48th St Water Sports! Our family of four, including two teenagers, did the sunset paddle board tour. None of us had ever paddle boarded before and we weren't sure how difficult it would be. The instructors, Steve and Meghan, were patient and put us at ease. They even gave me a larger board, since...

I took my dad paddle boarding for the first time and he throughly enjoyed it. They give you tips and a tour before you go out. The prices are good as well. If you are looking for something to do in OC on the water then this is the place to go.

Great experience! Everyone was really helpful and nice! My mom kayaked and was really impressed by the quality of the kayak. My friend and I both went paddle boarding and one of the people made sure we understood how to work the paddle boards before going out!

This is great company for watersports. I've been paddleboarding before but the employee made me paddle around to make sure I was sure of myself while on the water. They carried the board for me and the board was really comfortable on my feet. Their boards have a soft foam covering for your feet. They gave me some good suggestions... More

Rented a sailboat. Staff is great. The manager was cautious about making sure the weather was both safe (there were storm early in the day) and fun (when it got sunny, the wind went dead). When he saw that the conditions were great, then he rented us our Hobie Cat. Sailboat in perfect condition. Had a great time.
