Fishing, Crabbing and Powerboat Rentals

Offering Boat Rentals for use on the Chesapeake Bay and Local Inland Waters
to Residents, Visitors, Tourists & Vacation Home renters that are in the
St. Michaels, Oxford, Easton, Cambridge and Kent Island areas

General Overview

All boats are new, top of the line in quality and professionally maintained. All but Rental Boats #2 and #3 are center console Carolina Skiffs equipped with 4-Stroke Yamaha outboard motors that are optioned with electric start and power tilt/trim which means they are easy to operate, quiet running, clean burning and very fuel efficient. All boats are very easy to maneuver, extremely stable, smooth riding and shallow draft. Most are outfitted with a Chesapeake Bay Fishing & Crabbing License which allows everyone aboard to legally fish or crab the Chesapeake Bay and its tributaries. Customers generally use them for fishing, crabbing, exploring, touring, sightseeing, picnicking, lounging, sunning, swimming, or visiting restaurants for waterside dinning.

State law requires that all children under the age of 13 years wear a life jacket (PFD) while onboard. Life jackets are included with all rental boats but special attention is paid to small children under 90 pounds to ensure proper sizing and fitting.

All boat renters must be at least 18 years old in order to sign our rental contract however operators can be of any age as long as they participate in the orientation process.

Rental Boats are not allowed to operate at night due to an abundance of non-lit hazards like crab pots, fish nets, unlit aids to navigation, etc.

Half-day rentals last up to 4 hours, you choose either AM or PM periods. Full-day rentals last up to 7 hours.

All powerboat rental customers are assigned an appointment time. Please arrive about 45 minutes prior in order to complete the checkout process.

All equipment must be returned to our docks by 5pm.

FYI - If you were born after July 1, 1972 the State of Maryland requires that you have completed an authorized boating safety course and have a certificate of completion with when operating power boats on Maryland state waters. We are authorized by Maryland State Department of Natural Resources (DNR) to issue you a temporary 10 day Boating Safety Certificate ... there is no charge for this service.

Rental Boat #1 - Details

This is currently our largest and fastest boat. As such, only very experienced boaters will be qualified to rent her. The 150hp Yamaha 4-Stroke outboard motor provides a top end of about 50mph with 2 people onboard. Even with a full load of 18 people she'll still do over 40mph. As with most 4-stroke motors, it is quiet running, clean burning and very fuel efficient. She is easy to operate, extremely stable, smooth riding and reasonably shallow draft. A Chesapeake Bay Fishing & Crabbing License is supplied so that everyone onboard can legally fish & crab.

This boat is perfect for experienced boaters who are serious about fishing or for those who wish to explore distant locations like Kent Island, Wye River, Western Shore or the Annapolis area. Of course all local areas like St. Michaels, Oxford and Kent Narrows are also available with a much shorter drive time.

Rental Boat #2 - Details

This is by far our most luxurious rental boat and for that reason she is not rented to anyone who wants to go fishing or crabbing. The 90hp Yamaha 4-Stroke outboard motor provides a top end of about 28mph with 2 people onboard. She'll still do over 18mph even with a full load of 14 people. As with most 4-stroke motors, it is quiet running, clean burning and fuel efficient. She is easy to operate, extremely stable, smooth riding and very shallow draft.

If you've never been on a Pontoon Boat before, you really should try one. I've boated my whole life having never been aboard one until the summer of 2001 when we bought our first. It quickly became a favorite of ours as well as our friends. Try one for a day or week rental; it's a sure bet you too will become a "Pontoon Boat Advocate".

This boat is perfect for folks with some boating experience that wish to spend the day exploring, sightseeing, picnicking, swimming or visiting a waterfront restaurant for lunch or dinner in comfort. Though she is rather slow, you can still visit Oxford, St. Michaels and Kent Narrows if you don't mind the extended drive time.
