Taxi/Shuttle Passengers

Between Early May through Labor Day Weekend we ran 1,094 trips and served 3,972 people. 1,921 people used our shuttle service or water taxi to move around Ocean City safely which alleviated traffic and parking congestion.

We also ran 7 types of experiences: everything from Sunset Cruises to Ice Cream Cruises and even Shore Craft Beer Cruises! 2,051 people had some kind of unique experience on the coastal bays of Ocean City, MD.

But these numbers don’t tell the whole story… we asked for feedback throughout the year, recognizing that we had so much to learn as a new business. 285 of our customers provided feedback, with 97.18% of them indicating the highest level of satisfaction.

Here's a sample of the comments customers left for us!

Captain was awesome! Had a wonderful first experience on the OC Hopper! Only improvement I'd suggest would be cushions on seats for more comfort. Have a punchcard or something similar to give a free ride after so many trips.

Perhaps leaving a bit earlier, We did see the sunset but we were chasing it. Still had a great time.

We had a great time until Mother Nature decided to send a storm our way! No worries our captain got us back safely in time. We loved it and would definitely recommend it and/or do it again!

We also learned a ton this year.. We are going to spend the winter working on our software to tighten things up. We have ordered new cushions for our boats, and we have some brand new experiences that we are cooking up for 2020. If you want to be kept “in the loop” sign up to receive updates!
