We had a great time and were very happy to have the opportunity to go out before we had to leave. Lots of interesting information about the area and the ponies, of course, were the highlight. No doubt in my mind that we will be back. Highly recommend!

Love the "highly recommend" ...and really happy the ponies were available for you to see. You must come back to see the dolphins and catch an Island sunset. Thank you for sharing your cruise experience with Daisey's. More

Our visit to Chincoteague Island was excellent and the island cruise with Daisey's Island Cruises topped off the weekend! Our captain was a native to the island and is extremely knowledgeable and FRIENDLY!! He was great! We were able to see a large group of horses and a mom & her baby. Wonderful experience, we will come back again!

We went on the Daisey’s Island Cruises’ Scenic Nature Cruise last week. When were woke up that morning it was foggy and we were worried that we wouldn't see much on the tour. But the fog cleared and we had a fabulous view of Assateague Island. It was incredible; we saw at least a dozen ponies walking along the shore.... More

took the 2 hour afternoon tour. Both brothers that own the business both seem like great guys. Truly enjoy what they are doing. We did see a few ponies so that was really neat. The weather was sunny which definately helped! Was fun. Seemed like about the only thing to actually do on the island!

There were 6 of us on the smaller pontoon boat and we loved having the small group and lots of interaction with the captain. The wildlife was absolutely incredible, and seeing it close up... More
