About Us

              Family-owned since 1985, Boatel California Inc. is the ONLY boatel in California, MD. Originally a hotel dating back to the early 1920s, named the “7 Gables”, it was transformed into a perfectly hidden gem by the DeCesaris family. Located directly across the Solomon’s Island bridge, Boatel California allows easy bay access to the great fishing grounds of the Patuxent River and the Chesapeake Bay. The area known for its salty water produces some of the best oyster and rock fishing in Southern Maryland

              From Wet Slips, Lift, or High-N-Dry storage options to a small, qualified onsite service department we have all your boating needs covered. Our staff helps new and seasoned boaters feel comfortable, safe, and stress free.  And once the boat cruise is over, we provide other relaxation outlets such as Olympic size swimming pool, lounge, and dive shop. Our facility offers a private, sheltered cove experience with top notch customer service and all-inclusive fees.

              Make Boatel California your private country club on the water and enjoy your “most coveted escape” at the mouth of the finest bay in SOMD. You’ll find everything you need to experience a leisurely outing here at Boatel California Inc.  Contact us directly at 1-800-BOATELS and take a tour of our beautiful facility at 23950 North Patuxent Beach Rd California, MD 20619.
