Introduction:

Ocean City is a resort town and prime sport fishing destination on the Atlantic coast of Maryland. Due to its isolation as a barrier island, the town remained a sleepy fishing village until 1875, when the Atlantic Hotel began welcoming visitors, and the following year a resort was born with construction of a railroad bridge across Sinepuxent Bay.

In 1878, the U.S. Life-Saving Service, an ancestor of today's Coast Guard, established a station in Ocean City. The second station, built in 1891, is now the Ocean City Life-Saving Station Museum, enshrining Ocean City's history and saluting the brave men who worked there.

In 1900, the first boardwalk was constructed. Trimper's Amusements opened shortly after. Unlike today, however, the boardwalk wasn't a year-round fixture. The boards were actually taken up in the winter, and stored until the following spring.

In August of 1933, a powerful storm ripped open a new channel from the bay to the ocean. Engineers made the inlet permanent, and with its new harbor, Ocean City became one of the east coast's premier sport fishing destinations and ?the White Marlin Capital of the World.

Today, Ocean City stretches along 10 miles of beautiful beach from the Inlet to the Delaware state line. The classic wooden boardwalk offers nearly 3 miles of food, games and shopping, with several marinas within easy walking distance. The White Marlin Open remains the world’s largest billfish tournament, attracting boats from Florida to New England every August, taking more than 1,500 of the world’s best anglers in pursuit of some of America’s largest fish for more than $3 million in prizes.


Navigating the Water:

Navigating the Water- Use NOAA Chart 12211 There is a significant current through the Ocean City inlet which necessitates frequent dredging. The wisest course is to check with your destination marina for current conditions.
