Let me start by saying that our morning at 48th St. Watersports was definitely the highlight of our girl's getaway. It's October, so we knew we would be limited in our water activities. There were 5 of us, we got in the car and just showed up and the guys there were happy to have us and more than accommodating!... More

We had the absolute best time at 48th St. Watersports. Jamie was FANTASTIC! He really made us feel comfortable with the attempts at paddle boarding and really walked us thru all the steps of canoeing. We had never canoed or paddle boarded and were made felt very comfortable. All four of us would give this company A++++++++++++++++++++++ ratings! Super super... More

Loved the service and $15 per single kayak is not bad at all. Would go back again to try a jetski or another type of water sport. The woman at the place also recommended great places to eat which was appreciated!

Set up a reservation for three double kayaks, they were ready on time, the equipment was in excellent condition and they took the time to adjust the equipment so we could enjoy the beautiful bayside kayaking. My family and friends had a great time and highly recommend 48th st. Watersports! Next year we plan on having them deliver them up... More

Great first time experience to paddleboard at night! 48th St. Watersports is the place to do this! Had a great tour guide and was very patient with our party, which included a young teen who was very nervous. The Second tour guide was so kind to paddle back with her to shore before the tour was over. Will definitely paddle... More

My friend and I went on a glow paddle board tour and found it to be a very unique experience! It was peaceful being the only people out on the bay, and everyone was very nice. We brought our phones in water resistant bags but it's hard to get good lighting for pictures. No one fell in and it's easy... More

We rented kayaks for an hour and they were super nice. Much better and friendlier then Odessa up the street. We rented a few singles and doubles and they let us swap out half way through kids and parents. Just a note the bay there is very warm and you can basically stand all the way out, very shallow.

Great staff here. Great location for bay kayaking. Paddled near a marsh area were tons of seagulls were nesting. These kayaks do not have any type of storage. I was also surprised that one does not need to wear a life jacket, but there is one in each kayak. They also have the ever popular stand up paddle boards and... More
