I'll take you on a nice cruise south showing you almost the entire bayside coastline of Ocean City, pointing out several popular landmarks as we go. We'll then reach the southern tip of Ocean City and pass through it's Inlet where I'll share some of the history and the formation story of Assateague Island.

I'm a US Coast Guard licensed Master Captain and co-founder of OC Bay Hopper -- Ocean City's water taxi and boat-based tour/experience service. I visit Assateague several times per week to show my guests the natural beauty of the island, share it's rich history, and usually get close enough for some great photos of the island's wild ponies.
During our cruise we'll travel through the many coastal bays, the Ocean City Inlet, and the Sinepuxent Bay along Assateague Island. We'll also see many popular landmarks including the Coast Guard station, the commercial fishing harbor, and more!
Our boats seat 12-15 guests comfortably. They are open on the sides with a canopy that provides some shade. There are no bathrooms aboard but we have a restroom at our Kiosk location available before/after you board the boat.
