Which date night would you prefer?

Date nights in Ocean City are a time for you and the one you love to relax, let loose, and brush all responsibilities out to sea. Here are a few date night ideas to help bring out the kid in you! Which kind of couple are you?


Fishing Charter Aboard the Angler– Winner of Best Fishing Charter 2023!

Rich does everything. He is a mate on the Angler. He took our tickets, got us our rods and reels, taught us how to get the fish off the hooks quickly and easily, and showed us how to use the reels. He and the other mate, Stephen, help get lines untangled and fish on-board throughout the day. Together with the Captain, they made the trip fabulous.

Take an adventure out on The Angler, Winner of the Best of OC Fishing Charters 2023. With a knowledgeable crew and a captain that knows how to put fish on the boat, you can’t go wrong. Maybe even put a little wager on it- whoever catches the first fish, doesn’t have to cook for a week! Click here for a sneak peek at a recent trip
