Overview

Whale Creek Marina is a friendly, full-service marina. We rent out boats and kayaks (single and double) for the day. No boating license is required! We have boat slips for up to a 26 foot boat, and they rent for the season or daily/weekly. Whale Creek Marina is also a great spot to go crabbing, and we are right next to a public boat dock. Whale Creek has the most full stocked tackle shop in the Ocean City area, and we sell fresh, locally caught bait as well as frozen bait, gasoline, snacks and drinks. Stop by today to experience some of the best of what the Jersey shore has to offer. We hope to see you soon!
