Glide along the Ocean Shores canals

You're heading to the beach and would like to try something new. You love the pounding surf and waves washing up and over your car...

Wait!

First, be sure to pull your vehicle out of the sand and to dry pavement. Now, get in said vehicle and drive down Point Brown Avenue to OS Boathouse.

Did you know there are nearly 25 miles of inter-connected, created fresh waterways with digging beginning in 1960. As Ocean Shores began, so did the canals. A monstrous electric hydraulic dredge, nicknamed the "Razor Clam" by locals, it would dig through and spit out water. The first canal was actually a water feature along the Ocean Shores Golf Course.

Year-round you have access to get out and enjoy these canals. OS Boathouse has several options including hydrobikes, stand-up paddleboards and kayaks.

Duffy Boats are the ideal answer for all ages, mobility levels and for most weather. Even if it's inclement, these boats are covered and give you a front-row seat to viewing wildlife, residential areas and parks along these rather hidden canals.

According to OS Boathouse, "more than a boat, a Duffy electric boat puts you at the helm of a lifestyle powered by quiet, reliable, sophisticated fun."

Powered by 100% electric, zero emissions, you're able to hire a captain or captain yourself (after a brief safety check). How about taking out a group from work, your family and friends for a birthday party or just to enjoy while you visit Ocean Shores?

Oh, you're not Captain Ahab or The Little Mermaid? These waters are calm. So, it's an easy ride along these canals. You'll even be able to take food aboard and not end up with hot chocolate on you or potato chips strewn throughout the boat. Easy gliding.
