Ocean City Icon - The Sea Rocket - Announces New Location, Attractions and Amenities

New location boasts private boardwalk, food and drink service__, and expanded fleet

OCEAN CITY, Md. (May 31, 2017) – An iconic Ocean City attraction since 1983, The Sea Rocket has relocated to 700 S Philadelphia Avenue.

Just steps from the inlet, the speed boat thrill ride’s new address includes over 60 dedicated parking spots and a private boardwalk along the bay. In addition, the spacious site allows for the future addition of a food and drink concession stand where patrons will be able to enjoy burgers, hot dogs, beer and wine, and more.

But TripAdvisor’s #1-rated family water attraction has more than just new address. The Sea Rocket’s full fleet – the 65-foot Sea Rocket, two 30-foot parasail boats, and a brand-new 40-foot pontoon boat for fishing and private charters – is christening its new launch pad with updated graphics.

“Our larger, more convenient location makes us a one-stop shop for families to enjoy watersports and grab a bite while enjoying our quiet, private boardwalk,” said Brad Donahue, Sea Rocket captain and co-owner. “The Sea Rocket has been in our family for over 30 years, and even though we’re growing, our priority has always been safety. We employ only the highest-qualified captains and mates to operate our fleet,” Donahue added.

New this year, patrons will have more chances to ride The Sea Rocket, which plans on eight daily trips during peak season. Parasail enthusiasts can soar above the ocean at 400, 600, or 800 feet, and the new Go-Pro Package, which includes the use of a selfie stick, will allow them to record and preserve their high-flying experience. “We want our customers, many of whom are loyal visitors, to have an unforgettable experience,” said Donahue. “Come see us at our new location for a thrilling, family-friendly adventure.”
