Wildlife Tour of Assateague and Chincoteague Islands

This scenic tour aboard a six-passenger pontoon boat begins by navigating around the southern end of Chincoteague Island and heading to the backside of Assateague Island. We seek out and observe the wild ponies in their native habitat. Enjoy listening to local history and information on Assateague and Chincoteague Island as you take in the sights!

Wild Ponies have inhabited Assateague Island for hundreds of years. We know the best spots on the Assateague coastline for pony viewing, and we take you there for a unique experience. Wildlife sightings along the way may include bald eagles, shorebirds, and dolphins.

In recent years, wildlife management officials have built miles of fencing along the roadways on Assateague to keep the ponies off the roadway and protect them from getting hit by vehicles. Numerous pony bands (families) roam extensive areas of Assateague Island that cannot be seen from the roads on Assateague.

As we make every effort to get up close with the wild ponies, you also encounter many different shore birds, bald eagles, and ospreys. Learn some local legends and lore about the islands of Assateague and Chincoteague. See aquaculture farms and learn how they benefit our ecosystem. There is so much nature and beauty to be seen, and we share it all with you on this tour.
