We take great pride in our equipment If a renter damages a Rental Boat they are fully responsible (just like a rental car). You can download or view a copy of our Release of Liability/Waiver and Departure/Safety Checklist using the link at the bottom of this page.

Can we bring drinks and food?

Yes, we recommend bringing drinks and food. There is plenty of room for a cooler! Our employees will be happy to help you load your items on the vessel.

What is your policy for inclement weather?

Most of the weather forecasts for the Maryland and Delaware shore come from far away and as a result are usually inaccurate (in terms of precipitation). In addition, shore weather can be fickle and often isolated. For example, it may be raining in Bethany Beach and sunny in Dewey Beach. Often they will forecast a 50% chance of rain and we don't get a single drop, where as other times they forecast a 10% chance of rain and it rains all day. OUR RECOMMENDATION: Make the reservations for when you would like to go and in the event of inclement weather we will contact you to re-schedule for later that day or another day. You can always call prior to your reservation to get a weather update from us. You can rest assured that the managers and staff at Dewey Beach Watersports constantly monitor the weather (real time) to ensure a safe and memorable trip! If weather becomes an issue during your rental, we will be happy to issue a rain check or refund for the time left on your rental.
