Craft beer cruises are back in Ocean City on Thursday’s throughout the summer.  Explore Ocean City from the water with a cold LOCAL craft beer in hand. The OC Bay Hopper, in collaboration with Shore Craft Beer and local breweries across Delmarva, are showing guests aboard the Bay Hopper water taxi exactly what it looks like when world class beer meets world class beauty — and when it comes to beauty and craft beer, you truly couldn’t ask for anything better than this.

Get your friends together and join us!  Where else can you get a 2 hour sunset cruise with 2 local craft beers for $40!

Every Thursday evening from 6:30-8:30 p.m. through the summer, the Bay Hopper will leave from West Ocean City for a casual, beer-centric trip around the bay behind Ocean City. Tickets to the Bay Hopper craft beer cruise include two local craft beers, and additional beers can be purchased for $5 each thereafter. Guests can learn more about their favorite beers and their origins or discover new favorites, while also enjoying stunning sunsets and unparalleled views of the Ocean City skyline and its natural surroundings.

Some cruises also feature homemade root beer (Burley Oak).

Some of these cruises will provide a wide variety of Shore beers, while others will feature “Tap Takeovers,” where representatives from a specific local brewery will serve their beers and provide information on their brewery.  Big Oyster, Burley Oak, and Evolution Craft Brewing are all committed to craft beer cruises. More information.

Find photos from both the Bay Hopper craft beer cruises below. Just remember: photos hardly do justice to a summer on the Shore, and to really get a feel for the world class beauty (not to mention the world class beer), you’ve got to be there in person.

Friends, scenery and local craft beer!
By 9 p.m., the sun has just gone down on the Shore and a perfect evening of beautiful landscapes and craft beer has just about wrapped up. Until next week!

  1. Do you have 2 different cruises? Or just the craft beer cruise? Would it be wise for me to reserve a couple spots?
