Whale Creek Marina is a friendly, full-service marina. We rent out boats and kayaks (single and double) for the day. No boating license is required! We have boat slips for up to a 26 foot boat, and they rent for the season or daily/weekly. Whale Creek Marina is also a great spot to go crabbing, and we are right next to a public boat dock. Whale Creek has the most full stocked tackle shop in the Ocean City area, and we sell fresh, locally caught bait as well as frozen bait, gasoline, snacks and drinks. Stop by today to experience some of the best of what the Jersey shore has to offer. We hope to see you soon!

The marina is a great place to rent a boat for fishing and/or crabbing in the back bays. They have evrything you need for a relaxing day of fishing at reasonable rates.

The young man who helped us was extremely friendly & informative. The only problems were 1) the boat was decked eagerly and 2) it wasn't always clear where to boat or swim - or not (perhaps it was more our fault than theirs... Perhaps a...More
