Eastern Watersports brings kayaking and guided cruises to the Patapsco, kicking off a summer of activity at Port Covington

Port Covington and Eastern Watersports invite you to get on the water this summer through a new partnership bringing kayaking, paddleboarding, sailing catamarans, and guided cruises and tours to Port Covington. Beginning this Saturday, May 28, Eastern Watersports will offer hourly equipment rentals for the first-time ever in South Baltimore at the Port Covington Marina, offering unmatched recreational activity along the Middle Branch of the Patapsco River. The marina, located at 321 E. Cromwell Street (accessible via McComas Street), will be open for rentals seven days a week, 10 a.m. – 7 p.m., through August.

“As the transformation of Port Covington continues, we are excited to partner with Eastern Watersports to bring recreational activities to the marina, making the Middle Branch of the Patapsco River accessible to even more Baltimore communities,” said MaryAnne Gilmartin, Founder and CEO of MAG Partners. “This is just one piece of our exciting summer programming this year and we invite everyone to experience all that Port Covington has to offer.”

“Our mission at Eastern Watersports has always been to offer affordable equipment, lessons, and events so as many people as possible can have the opportunity to get outside, get active, and have fun,” said Philip DePalo, founder and owner, Eastern Watersports. “Until now, we’ve been concentrated in Eastern Baltimore County, but we’re excited to now also reach residents and visitors in Baltimore City and Frederick County. Whether in the heart of the city or in our state parks, Maryland has an abundance of scenic waterways to explore, and we hope more people will join us this summer to experience the freedom of a day spent on the water.”
