Ever hear the expression “tastes like heaven?”  Do you think heaven has a taste?  Well, if heaven was to have a taste and there was some way for you to put heaven in your mouth then we think we know what this taste would be like.  If you’d like to find out, then get on our famous Ice Cream Cruise!


Yes folks, this is the one and only OC Bay Hopper Ice Cream Cruise!  Get off the beach and take a one-hour trip on the beautiful Assawoman Bay to sample a variety of mouthwatering, award-winning, small-batch, gourmet ice cream. 


This cruise only serves Taharka Bros ice cream!  If you don’t know Taharka – the best way to describe it is that it “tastes like heaven.”  This is amazing ice cream made in Baltimore.  You’ll try some very interesting flavors like the award-winning honey graham, mint flix and chillz, coffee oreo and more.  If you want to score some points with your kids or find something to bribe them with then here it is!     


Departure Location - This trip leaves from one of two destinations so please be sure to note which departure location you select.  This trip departs from both our location at 118th street (next to the Food Lion in Ocean Square Shopping Center) and our new downtown location (307 Dorchester Street, Ocean City, 21842)

NOTE ON BOARDING THE BOAT FROM DOWNTOWN LOCATION: You will board the boat from a fixed dock. Depending on the tides, this can be a large step down into the boat. We are happy to assist but customers who are limited in mobility may find better options at a trip leaving from 118th Street.

Bathrooms – Our Bay Hoppers do not have bathrooms onboard.  Our kiosk at our 118th street location in OC does have a bathroom you can use before departure, our downtown location does not.


What To Bring – Depending on the weather, you should dress appropriately.  Things to consider bringing include sunscreen, some snacks, drinks, a sweatshirt, and camera. 


Weather – Unless the weather poses a threat to the safety of our passengers (e.g., lightening, high winds) or the weather will make the trip extremely uncomfortable (e.g., heavy rain) the trip will proceed as scheduled.  If the Captain decides to cancel the trip due to the weather, then you will be notified, and your money refunded.

Warning:  If you have any form of food allergen please advise at the time of booking your trip.

Aligned with the goal of ensuring all OC Bay Hopper customers have a great experience, we will only run trips that are deemed safe by our Captains. Generally, the weather on the coastal bays of the Ocean City area is very pleasant but sometimes storms and thunderstorms do occur.

In the event that your trip is cancelled, you will receive a full refund. Sometimes, the weather conditions, particularly high winds causing choppy seas, will allow us to run a safe trip that is a bit unpleasant.

Our captains will always strive to let people know when conditions will be less than ideal and if conditions warrant a possible refund you may choose to not take the trip. (But sometimes those rough passages make for the best experiences!)
