We rented kayaks,and I took a surf lesson for 2 days from Mike Kenny that was informative,and fun!The guys at 48th Street Water Sports are friendly, helpful, and the prices are the best on the island!I have been going to this spot since they opened, and comparatively, there is no other water sport site that can compete!These guys are THE BEST!

“Make this a must do!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 July 2012

There are a lot of places tryin to jump on the stand up paddle board bandwagon. Most of these places are fly by night bubble biters. We went to a couple of places looking for SUPs and found most of them to be shotty operations. We found 48th Street water sports and decided to give them a try. It turned out after talking with one the workers that they are the biggest in the area and one of the original people to offer them. This place was a little piece of paridise. They have a huge selection of boards and a knowledgable staff on what boards were the best fit for my family. I will highly recommend this place over all others. They are setting the industry standard for this sport. Good job fellas. Hope to see you again

“Great instruction and service”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 July 2012

Very few places rent sailboats to beginners. Fortunately, 48th St Watersports does. We rented a 1- and 2-sail catamaran on separate days and received lessons. Mike was very knowledgeable and provided great instruction. They were very accomodating with scheduling and sailboats and flotation vests were in good shape. it was a little hard to find at first, until I realized they are behind the Princess Bayside Hotel on the bay shore. We parked under the hotel. They offer other equipment too, but I'm now hooked on sailing and highly recommend them for that, or for other equipment rental.

“Laid back and friendly”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 July 2012

Recently purchased a condo next door so this location is very convenient. When we had some friends up from Miami we decided to rent a paddle boat for a spin out in the bay. We got ourselves a four person boat, the staff provided a watch for us as we did not want our phones to get wet. Set us up and off we went. They also offer paddle boarding, kyacks, wind surfing. What I love is it's not hectic like some of the other companies, after all you are on vacation and the water should be calming. Try it, you won't be disappointed.
