Great fishing trip in OC MD. Captain and first mate were helpful and funny to new fishermen (and women). Nice you can BYOB. They give you everything you need. Caught 2 fish but smaller so we had to throw them back.

We went on the jet boat ride. I had a really good trip with my girl. Captain rich was great. It was the perfect boat ride on a hot day to get splashed and thrown around on. Thank you back bay Adventures

Ok, skip the "blue" and "yellow" boats, and go straight to the OC Screamer! Those other boat rides are borrrrrrrrrrrrrring. The OC Screamer will thrill you beyond compare! Plan to get wet!! It's a boat load of fun and worth the money!

There are size limits on the fish. We mainly fish for flounder and they have to be 17". You do not need a fishing license aboard our headboat. Thanks!
