About
Starting in 2015 Island Watersports now offers boat sales, service, rentals, and storage. The area's only full service marina! Maryland and Delaware's largest rental boat fleet. Island Watersports offers pontoon boats, fishing boats, speed boats, and jet boats. We also offer brand new jet skis to rent as well as paddle boards and kayaks. The jet boats include new Scarab jet boats. The jet boats are the SAFEST boats for families and watersports. Jet boats do NOT have a propeller in the rear of the boat and instead are driven by a jet of water. Propellers will cause injury if a swimmer comes in contact, the lack of a propeller leaves the jet boats as the safest boats for watersports! Island Watersports is also the area's only business with wakeboard, skiing, kneeboard, and tube rentals and lessons.

STAY AWAY! DISHONEST AND TERRIBLE CUSTOMER SERVICE!!! BAIT & SWITCH TACTICS!. The service staff mislead me from my 1st call, claiming the were a Mercruiser servicing dealership capable of servicing warranty work. I told not just 1 person, but 3 people that I was in looking for WARRANTY services on my boat. I was assured each time, by each person they could perform this work under warranty.

Well, Island Watersports is NOT a Mercrusier certified dealer as they held themselves out to be. It was not until after they had my boat for 7 days and I called them that they admited they could not perform the warranty service. I was floored that they had mislead me so brazenly.

Now after 10 day's with boat stuck, till they opened on Tuesday , I had to take the day off work, burn $100 of diesel, drive 320 miles round trip to pick up the boat and take it to a REAL Mercruiser dealer. On top of that I am in the back of the que at the new dealer waiting another 2-3 to get my boat serviced. So much for Summer boating.

The capper comes when I pick up the boat that they want to charge me $400 diagnostic fee for work that they cannot perform as a Certified Mercruiser dealer. The office person who checked my boat in for service then lied to me when I confronted her about not being a Mercruiser dealer. She told me she didn't know my boat was an I/O when she checked it in. This woman had walked outside with me and took pictures of the boat with me for 10 mins! I even gave her the serial#s of the engines and outdrives for the warranty, while standing behind the boat!

Additionally, I had called John in service on Monday July 17th asking that the fold down Radar be put back up to keep it from filling with water. He told me that would do it right away. I called 5 days later and asked if had been done and he said yes it was up. Well apparently that was a lie as well because when I came to get the boat today the radar was still in the down position.

Carrying on what is clearly a problem from the top down, the owner Mike instead of admitting the mistake they made and acknowledging the problems they caused. Instead threatens to file a mechanics lien to have my boat seized if I don't pay the diagnostic fee. Go anywhere but here if you want honest work done on your boat.

The on-line rental process was easy and, when we arrived on the rental date, the staff was more than accommodating and informed us of all we needed to operate our pontoon boat and keep our passengers safe. Our boat was in great condition and even appeared new. Overall, it was a very pleasant experience, and I would not hesitate to do it again.

We rented a pontoon boat for a 4 hour rental in the morning. We also hired a captain (Bill Licata) who was fantastic. We had 8 adults (our three grown daughters and their partners) and our 2 year old granddaughter. The boat was in great condition and the Island Sports staff was very courteous, professional and efficient. We will definitely rent again.

Had the best day ever on the pontoon boat!! Wishing we had done this year’s ago. The staff was super friendly and informative. The pontoon boat was very nice and clean. The young men that talked us through launching and docking were awesome! Great start to our beach week.

New triple toon with 115 HP engine - great boat. Loved the boat and the instructions and safety talk. The area of allowed boating does reach several very good restaurants (Seacrets, Macky’s, Ocean Lines Yacht Club, Fins, etc). Not our first rental nor will it be our last!

Guide was fantastic. Had a wonderful ride . Only complaint is the girl in the office for check in was extremely rude. If the ride hadn’t already been booked we would have left & spent the money elsewhere.

Rented a Tri-toon boat on Sunday. The customer service was awesome! The instructions couldnt have been any better and the entire crew was so accommodating and knowledgeable. The pricing is fair and the boat was practically new. Highly recommend Island Watersports if you are in need of a boat to rent for the day.

The girl at the desk was very nice and our guide was great! I thought it was a bit on the pricey side though, however never renting one before I'm not sure of comparisons. We did have fun and like I said, our guide was cool!
