Reviews From Our Guests
My daughter and I went up with Tyler and Jack for 400 ft. Both of them were super nice and very helpful. My daughter loved it so much that we went again but this time we had Kyle and Scott and we went up 800 ft. Again excellent. We also went jet skiing with Noah and he made sure we were comfortable. Loved the area that we got to ride. Noah is very talented. Highly recommend this place!

My family and I had an amazing time parasailing with the team at Paraside Watersports. We were taken on boat by Lucas and Kevin who were both incredibly nice and informative. The two created a very fun experience that we will never forget. Lucas especially would make jokes that helped calm our nerves and feel more excited to go up into the air. Overall, the experience was exceptional and I would definitely recommend booking a watersport with Paradise Watersports, especially parasailing.

Wow! This was my first experience on a boat and parasailing and I will defiantly be going again. We went 800ft and got our bodies dunked in the water! Tyler and Kevin were the best in explaining what to do and making me feel safe and comfortable by making me laugh! I can’t wait to go again next year!

My daughter & I went Jet Skiing for the first time. Though it is very easy to pick up and do, we were first-timers. The staff at Paradise was entertaining and made it very enjoyable. The jet skis themselves were easy to handle and had plenty of pick up. We had a blast and look forward to going back to Paradise Watersports again!

JET SKI FAQS
What's the difference between a jet ski and WaveRunner?
Really nothing. Think: Ford, Chevy, Chrysler. They all have the same functions, just look a little different. We refer to one or all throughout this website, but we are always talking about the 3-seater personal watercrafts.
Can we take the jet ski anywhere we want in Ocean City?
Maryland requires that any rental jet ski stay within visible sight of our highly trained guides. They are there for your safety. Luckily enough, our guides have great eyesight, and we have the largest riding area in Maryland with no other rental companies in sight! This means that each trip has a personal lifeguard (or two or three) for the duration of your adventure, and you won’t have to worry about any other rental companies sharing the same space. If you are renting the jet skis at our Paradise Watersports Marina, you may be lucky enough to see dolphins near our riding area as many of our customers have witnessed every season.
Are the prices of your jet ski rentals at Paradise Watersports per person?
No! The prices listed are per watercraft, not per person, so they include the jet ski driver and up to two additional people, depending on their size and the total combined weight.
Does the instruction time count as part of my driving time?
No way! Your Paradise Watersports jet ski adventure does not begin until you physically leave our docks heading out for the water! By the time you get back, we promise you’ll agree that of all the things to do in Ocean City, Maryland, jet ski rentals are one of the most fun and memorable attractions!
What is the minimum age to rent a jet ski in Ocean City, Maryland?
You must be 16 years of age to rent a jet ski in Ocean City, BUT you must have a parent or guardian sign for you if you are under the age of 18. All operators must present a valid photo ID with birthdate and must complete a Boater Safety course (see next FAQ). If you do not have a driver’s license or other photo ID, we suggest you obtain a state ID card from your local Department of Motor Vehicles prior to your vacation. (If you left your ID at home, that’s not a problem! We have a fax machine so that a friend or loved one can fax a copy of your ID directly to our office to confirm your age and identity and get you out on the water!)
Do we need a license in order to drive the jet ski?
A temporary boater’s license is provided to customers.
Where do I go to take the Boater Safety course?
The Boater Safety course can be completed at our Paradise Watersports Marina, located on the docks of Hooper’s Crab House. It takes around 15-30 minutes to complete the course, and it is open book with the answers right in front of you, so there are no excuses to get any wrong! This course is temporary and only works while under the supervision of our guides for the hour that you reserved. If you decide you would like to come back another time and rent from us again, unfortunately state law requires us to re-administer the test (but that’s okay, by then you should be a jet ski guru!). We ask that if you are renting a jet ski from us to please arrive at least 30 minutes prior to your reservation time to get squared away and complete proper testing.
Is there a minimum age to ride on the jet ski?
Yes, passengers must be 5 years of age or older.
