This Scenic cruise on our larger vessel but the beautiful Chincoteague and Assateague Island sights are just as glorious!
Daisey’s Island Cruises has a National Park Service permit which allows us to operate our tours within the boundary of the Assateague Island National Seashore. This permit allows us to get our customers up close and personal with the wild ponies and various other wildlife that populate Assateague Island.
All our services begin by navigating around the southern end of Chincoteague Island and heading to the backside of Assateague Island. We will cruise the extensive back bay coastline of the Assateague Island National Wildlife Refuge. We will visit all of the best areas to observe the ponies in their native habitat. We also cruise the southern-most tip of Assateague Island, Tom’s Cove and the Chincoteague Inlet. This is the best area to encounter Atlantic Bottlenose Dolphins from mid-summer through late fall.
The Martha Lou and Osprey II are our larger capacity pontoon boats with bathroom facilities on board. The Martha Lou and the Osprey II leave from Dock 2, Curtis Merrit Harbor.
You may also reserve seats by phone and pay cash or check at dock (757)336-5556
