Ocean City has always been the summer beach destination for people living in the Washington, D.C., area.

Ocean City is a treasure trove of vacation fun. Besides lounging on the beach, eating, drinking, and generally relaxing, there are plenty of water activities to partake in, too! Here are the winners of the 2018 “Best of Ocean City” polls from oceancity.com. 

Ocean City is all about having a good time on the water, and there are tons of options to choose from when it comes to planning out your activities. If you’re looking for the best jet skiing, check out Odyssea Watersports, which has won the "best of" award for five straight years. They are family-owned and have been around for 20 years, hiring the most personable and experienced teachers and employees. 

“Odyssea has a private beach, experienced guides to assist watersport newbies, and top-quality jet skis, pontoon boats, kayaks and stand-up paddle boards.”

If you prefer something a little more low-key, the best kayak rentals are at 48th Street Watersports. They’ve also won this title for the past five years. Located right on ...

“the picturesque Isle of Wight Bay, 48th Street Watersports is one of the only places in Ocean City that offers kayak eco tours, where guides will help you get out on the water and catch an intimate glance at all the plant and animal life that the bay has to offer. You can see diamondback terrapins, Maryland blue crabs, ospreys, egrets, horseshoe crabs, jellyfish and sometimes even stingrays and skates as you glide over the shallow waters of the bay.”
