Tilghman Island Marina & Rentals is the area’s largest purveyor of watercraft rentals. Our fleet includes: Jet skis, waverunners, powerboats, pontoon boats, sailboats, kayaks, stand-up paddle boards as well as bicycles and fishing or crabbing gear. All equipment is impeccably maintained and all renters receive an extraordinary amount of relevant training prior to each rental in order to ensure customer safety and conformance with Maryland boating laws.
Our main goal is to provide customers with upscale watercraft that will ensure a safe and enjoyable experience while vacationing in our area. As such we offer only new equipment that is top of the line in quality and professionally maintained. Additionally, we are a Maryland State Department of Natural Resources (DNR) Safety-Certified rental facility which means that our rental equipment can be trusted to live up to your expectations so that your experience will be joyfully remembered.
Though most rental customers are area tourists visiting for the day or weekend; many are vacation home renters with waterfront vacation homes that allow rental boats to be kept attheir dock throughout their stay. Having come from other parts of the country, being able to rent watercraft for exploring our waters is very much appreciated.
For vacationers that are not located directly on the water or do not have access to a boat dock, rental boats are provided free dockage at the Tilghman Island Marina which is located at the northwest end of Tilghman Island overlooking the Chesapeake Bay, Knapps Narrows Channel inlet and Back Creek Kayaking Water Trails; just 15 minutes from St. Michaels. Boating, kayaking, fishing, crabbing and bird watching in this area are all spectacular and accessible directly from our boat docks.
Depending on the specific type of equipment, most rentals are available on a: 1-hour, 2-hour, half day, full day, weekend, weekly, and monthly rental period. Discounted rates are offered for long-term rental periods (1 week or longer) or for multiple rentals.
