Our family had gone on a Daisey's nature cruise a few years ago on a smaller boat. It was a great experience! When we heard that the Daisey's sold their business, we were hesitant. When we had family visiting from to of town, our group was too big for a smaller boat tour. We rode on their newest boat which... More

The boat was comfortable, we saw a pod of dolphins up close, a herd of wild ponies up close, learned lots of fascinating history of the island, and there was a stunning sunset! Captain Carlton was flexible, talkative, generous and funny. Couldn't have been better.

We booked this tour for 1:00pm departure and it is well worth the money! We went on the larger boat (for the restroom). And yes, the seats were cushioned! Yay! I would recommend bringing a windbreaker and a camera. We were also allowed to bring snacks (I did not see a trash can onboard so bring something to put your... More

Capt. Fred gave us the best (dolphins, horses, bald eagles wild life and more on his spectacular cruise Sat. 9/27/14). We had perfect weather and good company on board. Because of Fred's life on the island, his knowledge of the history was never ending. We could have listened to him for many more hours. Thank you Daisey tours. Beth &... More

You don't need to think twice about going out on a tour with these guys! I almost passed up going but my mother insisted and as usual she was right. I thought that exploring by ourselves would be just fine but this ride was so much more than just a tour. We saw eagles and ponies then tried to track... More

This was a great trip. We were on the six person boat and it was so comfortable. It was like riding on a couch. We started with lots of dolphin activity including a few that did some jumping. The only reason I wanted to come to Chincoteague was because of the ponies. I was a horse-crazy girl and read Marguerite... More

Couldn't have picked a much better tour! The captain was very knowledgeable about the area, its history, and the wildlife. He went to great lengths to make sure we see all the wildlife he spotted. Our travel group enjoyed the tour very much. Would definitely go on this tour again!
