The area is quite popular for boogie boarding. There is a river which runs from the salt marsh into the ocean that is fun to play in. You can float on the current (direction dependent upon which way the tide is going) in a raft or inner tube, or go snorkeling. There is much to see in the channel... striper bass, shiners, crabs, blennies, prawns, etc. We even have seen lobster and some sort of stone fish.
The only catch is that parking is expensive. It can cost from $5-$10 a day. The good news is, that they have trollys that can transport you all over town, so once you've found a parking spot, you can keep it and travel all around. Of course, if you have a hotel in the area, you're set for parking and can just use the trollys. Once you're done at the beach, there are quite a few nice shops and restaurants around. Perkin's Cove is especially nice!
For those who don't like OOB, try Ocean Park, just a little south of there. Not nearly as built up or crowded, plus they allow dogs!
For waterparks, there is also Aquaboggin, just up the road from splashtown.
