  • Rehoboth Beach Historical Society
    The Rehoboth Beach Museum preserves myriad artifacts exhibiting the beach community's beginnings, growth, and coastal customs. Situated in an icehouse erected in 1925, the museum showcases memorabilia reflective of the sandy region, including vintage postcards, retro bathing suits, and celebrity look-alike jellyfish. The current exhibit, Skimming the Surface, stages life on the Delaware coast with colorful surfboard and skim-board displays and educates visitors about ancient Hawaiian surfing traditions, surfing slang, and why the original pyramid-shaped surfboard did not catch on.

  • Overfalls Maritime Museum Foundation
    Lightship Overfalls, a floating-lighthouse ship built in 1938, recently earned designation as a National Historic Landmark. During the last 11 years, the Overfalls Foundation has restored the once-ailing ship, repairing its now-cheerful red hull and completely reworking its electrical system to accommodate an underwater drive-in theater for dolphins. The Overfalls Foundation continues to maintain the ship with the aid of hardworking volunteers and member support. Membership grants holders a 10% discount off select items from the Overfalls Ship's Store, such as clothes, books, and collectibles, as well as exclusive access to email announcements about news, meetings, social gatherings, and other events hosted by the Overfalls Foundation. Trained ship guides lead complimentary tours above and below the decks, allowing guests to discuss the difficulties of life before Dramamine and explore a vessel that played an important role in maritime history. The Overfalls Foundation also welcomes volunteers to assist with ongoing ship maintenance, development, and social projects.

  • Paradise Watersports
    Ever since he was a child, Ocean City native Tyler Barnes cruised the waters around his nautical town on his parents' boat. His nautical knowledge culminated in a three-year stint as a mate for a parasail company. As he fell in love with the craft, he realized he wanted to start his own adventure company. By blending his skills in watery sports with training as a marketing major, he founded Paradise Watersports. Ten years later, his company now owns a fleet of four 12-passenger parasailing boats and 30 Sea-Doo jet skis, which they buy new each year to ensure high-quality performance. Tyler leads a team of U.S. Coast Guard?licensed captains and crew, who also all hold certifications in CPR and first aid and boast a thorough knowledge of the area as well as a near-compulsive need for year-round water-bound activity. They put this knowledge to use teaching boater-safety courses on the bay and guiding jet-ski rentals and beach-hugging parasailing tours. On tours, they pilot U.S. Coast Guard?inspected boats custom-built to accommodate parasailing gear and equipped with hydraulic winches and towlines to enable slow takeoffs, steady ascents, and undisturbed conversations with seagulls. Visitors can also purchase professional photo packages and waterproof Canon cameras, forever capturing in time bay-bound adventures.

  • Skydive OC
    It's not everyday you leap from an airplane two miles above the ground and soar through the air at speeds up to 120 miles per hour. Unless, of course, you're one of the seasoned skydiving instructors at Skydive OC. Here, the team of fearless free-fallers introduce others to the thrill of the jump. Tandem skydives start with a brief training lesson to familiarize newbies with the free-fall position and teach them a few basic words in bird. From there, skydivers are strapped to an experienced instructor and spend several minutes watching other divers jump before boarding their plane. Once the proper altitude is reached, the only thing left to do is jump while the instructor takes care of the rest. After several minutes of adrenaline-boosting free fall, the parachute opens and slows both diver and instructor, allowing them to coast back to solid ground while taking in stunning views of the surrounding landscape.

  • Relentless Watersports
    With the help of Relentless Watersports' water-powered jet pack, it only takes a few seconds to go from lazily floating on the surface of the water to shooting through the sky. An instructor engages the jet pack's hand throttles, triggering its 200-horsepower engine to send streams of water coursing through a 10-meter hose, which in turn churns the water around you to launch you gracefully into the air. You can reach heights of up to 30 feet, much like a very tentative and cautious eagle. This process might sound intimidating, but that's where the certified and CPR-trained instructors come in. They teach aquatic explorers the safety rules and techniques necessary to operate a JetLev jet pack, covering how to literally walk on water, hover above the water's surface, and turn on a dime.
