OC Liquid Limo is offering Ocean Pines residents a convenient and relaxing ride to Oceans Calling and Country Calling festivals by way of their Liquid Tiki this fall. 

OC Liquid Limo runs its Liquid Tiki, a charter boat that fits 18 persons and is complete with a restroom, bar, sound system, and LED lights, from the middle of May to the middle of October, weather dependent. 

Owner Ron Croker said their regular operations consist mainly of bachelorette, bachelor, and birthday parties. Rides are an hour and a half around Ocean City and Assateague. This year, the company will offer an alternative 35-to-45-minute route to the anticipated music festivals. The Liquid Tiki will pick up festivalgoers from the Ocean Pines Yacht Club and drop them off at Olde Town Marina, two blocks from the concert entrance. 

Oceans Calling is scheduled for Friday, Sept. 27, to Sunday, Sept. 29. The headliners include Blink-182, The Killers, and the Dave Matthews Band. Country Calling, set for Saturday, Oct. 4, and Sunday, Oct. 5, will feature Jelly Roll, Tyler Childers, Eric Church, and Lainey Wilson. 

“After talking with some folks, it seems like getting to the festival is more of the issue,” Croker said. “Everyone is trying to get there at the same time. We thought we could relieve some of that pressure by coming by way of water.” 

The water taxi service offers four one-way rides each day of the events. Trips, each with 18 available seats, are scheduled for 9 a.m., 10:30 a.m., 12 p.m., and 1:30 p.m. 

“A lot of thought went into those time frames,” Croker said. “Some folks want to get into Ocean City early and grab breakfast. Some might want to get there later and wait for everyone else, so we have options.” 

The service costs $40. Alcohol will be available for purchase from the fully stocked bar, and bloody marys and mimosas have been added to the menu for the earlier shuttles.  

The owner said the idea was conceived from the company’s great relationship with the Ocean Pines Association and the desire to give back to the community. He also hopes the service will provide a stress-free prelude to the crowds. 

“We want to get people to the festivals in style,” Croker said. “…It’ll be a nice way to take a relaxing cruise before getting into the mix.” 

Croker maintained that the shuttle’s charm is the crew’s commitment to each party. He said memories are made that day, and they like to make each event feel special. 

Reservations can be made online at the OC Liquid Limo’s official website or by calling 410-430-2120. 

“It is a wonderful experience to be out on the water,” Croker said. “It has such a wonderful effect on you. By offering this, we’re saying, ‘Look, you can take an Uber down to the concerts, or you can take the boat and grab a bloody mary and watch the world go by.’”
