We are OPEN Year Round!!!!

We are following the guidelines promoted by the government. We will do our best to have a sanitary environment for all of our customers, including sanitizing of all seats between tours. All boats have been treated with . All passengers are required to wear masks while loading and moving about the boat. Our captains may remove their mask for better communication when properly distanced.

Our large boat is running at a reduced capacity and we are doing our best to social distance. If you are worried about exposure we suggest calling us and booking a private tour (available on both the large and small boats). If this seems cost prohibitive perhaps now is not the time to take a tour.

It is colder on the water than land. Please be prepared for the cold. Wear layers!!!

Excellent tour. Definitely do this while at Chincoteague. Everyone was so nice and helpful. Our tour guide was only 16 but extremely mature and full of information. They are so accommodating for all ages. And everyone was so nice to our four-legged companion.

Awesome Cruise

This cruise was absolutely fantastic! We went on the small 6 person cruise. Our captain was the best. He took us to so many places, and he was so knowledgeable about Chincoteague and the native wildlife. We saw all sorts of birds plus lots of ponies. I would recommend this cruise to anyone.

Don't Miss This!

We had a great time on the boat and saw the ponies up close. Capt. Bill gave us an interesting history lesson of the island, and we will definitely take another ride when we go back to Chincoteague. We went on the smaller boat with another family.

Great Tour!

We had a great tour with Captain Russell! He pointed to the osprey and the bald eagle nests or roosting spots. He was able to get us as close as possible to the wild ponies! We would recommend the pontoon boat tour of Chincoteague and Virginia's side of Assateague.
