Maryland Coastal Bays Environmental Education Trip

Maryland Coastal Bays Logo The Maryland Coastal Bays Program has been involved in protecting the pristine beauty of the coastal Ocean City region for over 35 years. Join staff of this environmental advocacy and education group on a tour of the Assawoman and Sinepuxent Bays to learn more about the work of preserving this amazing natural resource. Highlights of this trip will include a stop at Assateague Island to see the wild ponies and a "hands on" component of seining along the shoreline to learn more about the fish that inhabit the coastal bay region. Take in the incredible sights and sounds of a wetland region teeming with life! Have your camera and questions ready- this trip is enjoyed by all ages. And note: 50% of the profits from this trip go to support Maryland Coastal Bays Program.


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!)
