Review of Whale Creek Marina

Attraction details
Recommended length of visit: 2-3 hours
Owner description: 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!

The crew and counter folks were very welcoming. The prices were much lower then other competitors and the quality of the equipment was above par. I would highly recommend Whale Creek & Crabbing in Strathmere, great way to spend time with the family.

We have always gone to Frank's for a day trip and now they are owned by Whale Creek. It was definitely an upgrade. They have a much more fun appeal , along with more tackle and equiptment variety. This year we needed 2 boats for we had more people and it was twice the fun. SOOO much that 2 days later we went out again with other people. Primarily we crab and have always caught a good number of keepers! We no doubt will return next year!

I needed a slip a few years ago and contacted Morgan and Missy about a slip for the season. I wish I had called them YEARS earlier. The marina has that old Jersey feel and it's away from the hustle and bustle of the Sea Isle marinas and they have all the bait and tackle that I need. They owners are very friendly and reasonable. I will be keeping my boat there for years to come.

Missy was very helpful and accommodating in outfitting our 3-person group to kayak Whale Creek. The kayaks were in good shape and very clean. She gave us great instructions about where to go so we didn't get stranded as the tide went out. We had a beautiful and fun trip, paddling around and watching the osprey bring food to its adolescent nestlings. I'd definitely do this again!
