Book Your Experience

This casual, two-hour trip aboard the Bay Hopper provides unparalleled views of the Ocean City skyline and its natural counterpart- Assateague Island!  Sit back and relax, take in the smell of the salty sea air, and crack open a cold, local craft beer, brewed right here on the Eastern Shore.


There's no better way to appreciate the region's culture than by enjoying its beauty and its locally-made, handcrafted libations all at once.  Your first two beers are included, and each 12 oz. craft beer can be purchased for just $5 thereafter -- the lowest price you'll find on land or sea! 


Each Shorecraft Beer Cruise is its own adventure: sometimes we have specific local breweries come aboard, with a variety of their offerings and possible even a brewmaster to discuss the beers. Other times, we will feature a multitude of local beers and someone from Shorecraft Beer will be available to "talk shop."

World Class Beer meets World Class Beauty on the Eastern Shore. 


Departure Location - This trip has two potential departure locations: our Downtown location (307 Dorchester Street) and West OC (12817 Harbor Road). Please note that there is ample parking in West OC.

NOTE ON BOARDING THE BOAT DOWNTOWN: 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 one of our "floating dock" locations (118th Street and West OC).

Bathrooms – Our Bay Hoppers do not have bathrooms onboard.  There are bathrooms next to our West OC location that you can use before departure.


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

ADULTS ONLY – This trip is for those who are 21+ years of age

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!)
