Captain Dingley's Board Shop opened its doors on the Naples Maine Causeway on May 15th 2012 by a young watersports instructor, Wayne Warren. Having a passion for passing his knowledge onto people interested in learning the same love for the sports, Wayne's idea was to build a non-intimidating environment for families and all! Since the opening, Captain Dingley's has gained recognition through out the industry as a premier watersports shop! Providing access to the industries leading brands, Captain Dingley's prides itself on "Lessons, Rentals & Retail"!
In 2014 Captain Dingley's had to opportunity to offer its premier water sports experience at a 2nd location. Captain Dingley's partnered up with the well known, 5 Star Migis Lodge, located on Sebago Lake.
In 2017 the Dingley's Brand made some changes for future growth! Captain Dingley's Board Shop, changed its name to Captain Dingley's! The reason for this was to simplify the name and broaden our audience of more than just hard goods of the sport and into the overall lifestyle of lake living! With the simplification of the name, we decided to clean up the logo to make it more modern and more focused on the name.
We have expanded our brand with the newest addition of Dingley's Wharf, LLC! We outgrew our retail space and sharing it with our rental fleet and Academy. We moved our entire rental fleet directly across the street! We have also added Jet Ski rentals along with Pontoon Boat rentals directly on Long Lake Maine.
