Our kids surprised their father with a belated boat ride on the bay. They rented a center console motor boat. It didn't go as fast as we expected or liked but we had five people on board so they felt it was over loaded even though they tell you the boat holds five people. The day was very overcast but...

We rented two Waverunners yesterday at Shark's Cove Marina. Entire staff was so nice and helpful from Tammy who took our reservations to Tom, Joey and Jason who assisted us with the Waverunners! They could not be nicer or more helpful! The Waverunners were in excellent condition with high speed and a very large area to use them! Highly recommend.... More

We had a great experience renting a pontoon boat from Shark's Cove. We had a blissful 2-hour cruise on the bay. Staff was very friendly and professional.

This is the sixth time that I have rented a pontoon boat from Shark's Cove and I have not been disappointed. Every boat has been clean and in good working order and the managers have made it easy to reserve the boat and have fun.

We rented a pontoon boat for a family day of crabbing and fishing. The Jurists, owners, we're so friendly and helpful and the boat was in excellent condition. The instructions for operating the boat were easy to understand and the staff very knowledgable and friendly. I would highly recommend this marina to anyone wanting to just spend the day on... More

Rented a pontoon for 2 hours on the bay. Found this marina to be one of the best values/cost in the area. Marina operator was young guy who was very friendly and helpful. We would return when we are in Ocean City area again. Family with three adult children who all drove. Boat was in great shape and lots of... More

Our family thoroughly enjoyed a day of waverunners and parasailing. Tammy was very accommodating even keeping the staff late to handle our groups schedule. Captain Mark gave us a very nice ride around the bay. The waverunners got to very high speeds and the area was large enough to explore. We took advantage of the combo price which saved us... More

This is a highly trafficked rental facility and can afford to refurbish, replace and make safe the rental equipment. The pontoon boat we rented was very worn, an embarrassment to actually rent to anyone. The floor covering was ripped, the seat cushions were moldy, ripped and saturated with water, there was no depth finder, the steering was wobbly, etc. Staff... More

This place ruined our day. To start, they told us wrong information...that even though they did not rent fishing poles, they informed us of a place that did and we could rent poles there and bring them on the boat at Shark's Cove Marina. However, when we got there the place had not rented poles for over a year. Once... More
