I would strongly advise taking your business elsewhere! We rented a speedboat for $350 for two hours, plus a deposit of $200 that we were assured would be held until return of the boat. After returning the speedboat we rented , the woman who owns this business would not the deposit and charged us an additional $540 for maintenance and labor. There was no damage to the boat, and we were not warned in advance that there could be any additional costs. The woman even called the police when we wouldn't immediately pay the extra $540. When the police arrived she told them to take me to jail if I didn't signt the receipt. I think they would have! And there was absolutely no reason for us to pay have to pay these hidden costs. Please don't get ripped off like we did, and stay away from Advanced Marina.
My friends and I were on vacation in Ocean City for a week as we do every year and usually rent a pontoon boat. We had never rented from Advanced Marina before and the whole experience was a blast! The pontoon boats are all brand new and ran great. The prices were great compared to the other places in town. The staff was extremely knowledgeable and friendly, and showed us where to fish and we ended up with a couple keeper flounders. Because of that we ended up taking out some wave runners later in the day which I had never done before and for $55 bucks. Definitely coming back next year.
BEWARE of never mentioned standard Labor Fee of $99 for assisting customer. Agreed to purchase used trlr hub which initially told was $30, wound up $50, plus $5/bearing, $3.50 seal, $2.50 cotter pin, $12.95 grease plus tax total $73.95 PARTS, then had the guts to add $75 discounted labor fee for a total of $153.39. The only labor was putting the grease in the hub. Since this was an emergency on Sat when marinas close early, I agreed to purchase the used hub (no warranty),but never aware of a $75 discounted labor fee Bought a new hub Monday (all parts & grease included) for $39.95 + tax at Racetrack Auto & Marina ON Rte 50.....Steer clear of Advanced Marina (Props & Bottoms) Attempted to call for clarity on the labor chge, Mark Wenzloff (Wenzlaff) hung up, tried later in the week again asking for explanation of labor, woman indicated it was time he spent with us and hung up. He knows his shop and where items are located, only labor was putting grease in the hub which we could have done ourselves. He had me sign the sales receipt as to no warranty on the hub and then tallied up the total bill. He toook full advantage of the situation and never mentioned the std labor chge I reported him to the Md Better Business Bureau, he lied to them and said he told us several times of the chge. I have also contacted OC Chamber of Commerce and will also post on Angie's List..Hope no one else gets burned by this guy....does not do business in good faith.....
Rented a boat this week and they tried to say that tiny nick in prop would be charged to my deposit. I couldnt even see them looking up close, but the old lady was able to see them supposedly from 20 feet away. She couldnt even find her nose if it wasnt attached to her face. She was extremely rude and nasty. Spoke to someone else who also had a similar problem and would never go back again. Expect to loose your deposit with this group of unpolite and rude people.
Very friendly staff and especially the Jet Ski guides, took the whole family all the kids loved it. Great activity for the hot summer fun! Rented a brand new pontoon boat the next day to take the kids fishing and tubing!!
This is one of the best values and memorable experiences in Ocean City. Every year we rent one of the largest pontoon boats, load up the kids and go tubing and fishing for the day. We have so many great photos of our family. I highly suggest this place. Nice people, best rates
