For the experienced boater we offer a line of performance shallow water jet boats that will carry up to five family or friends on the boating experience of a lifetime. Go clamming, fishing or simply sightseeing in our shallow water aluminum SJX jet boats. With these extremely capable shallow draft craft you can explore the beautiful unspoiled inshore areas of the Eastern Shore.
All our craft are new and maintained by certified marine mechanics. They meet all USCG safety requirements and include all required safety equipment.
It's no secret; the Eastern Shore has some of the finest crabbing, clamming and founder fishing in the world. The Barrier Islands of Chincoteague, Assateauge, Metomkin, Hog, Cob and others have been designated as an International Biosphere Reserve by the United Nations and one of the last unspoiled areas in North America. Sightseeing along these salt water marsh wonders is truly a unique experience we offer only to our more experienced boaters.
Safari Boat Rentals offer the finest shallow water jet boats available anywhere in the world to explore the Barrier Islands. Our SJX Jet boats are in class by themselves and second to none for shallow water boating. No other boat rental company or boat manufacturer on the eastern Seaboard can compare with our SJX Jet Boats which are guaranteed to provide you with a most memorable boating experience and appreciation for the salt water marshes and incredible diversity of the eastern shore.
We offer watercraft for boating enthusiasts of all ages. Our Mini Power Boats are guaranteed to provide economical enjoyment for all ages and skill levels. We start with our Lil Bug with 9.9 HP motor all the way up to our SJX Jet Boat with 200HP. We also offer boats for duck hunting, clamming, fishing or just plain putting around.
Have you ever wanted to just grab a rake and get back to nature? Well the Eastern Shore is the perfect place to go clamming and bring home more than a sun burn. Take the family and friends for a relaxing day of clamming on the Chincoteague Bay.
There are plenty of unspoiled areas along the Assateague shore line to observe nature. Bird watching in these areas is excellent and the wild ponies always bring smiles.
Inter Coastal Sightseeing
Experienced boaters with an approved float plan can cruise the inter-coastal waterway and see some of the most pristine marsh areas left anywhere in the US.
One of the all time favorite pastimes for visitors and locals alike is crabbing. Crabbing in the Chincoteague Bay is excellent and provides one of the most fun, relaxing and rewarding activities on the water.
If you’re a waterfowl hunter, the Eastern Shore Migratory Flyway offers hunting second to none. Check out our season rates and plan to come down and enjoy a day on the water
