We had made reservations but they were only running their larger boat during the day and we wanted the coziness of their pontoon boat cruise (we were there after Labor Day). So they were running the sunset cruise and for $10 more it was certainly worth it. Lighthouse, sunset, dolphins, and only one pony that night. But we had seen... More

I went on a tour with a group of approximately 7 friends and several other couples that weren't with our group. This company has either smaller pontoon boats for a group of 6 and a larger one, which we went out in, for a larger group (Note there's a bathroom on board the larger boat if that's a concern for...

The captain was thoughtful, eager to please, funny and easy going. The boat was spotless and comfortable. The experience was a great value for the price. I look forward to going again, and have recommended it to friends. Thanks!

Our family of 6 took up the entire boat on the small boat trip and everyone had a wonderful time. The captain was informative and friendly and made sure our 4 teens were all happily engaged. We didn't see dolphins and the ponies stayed far in the distance, but that couldn't be helped - he made every effort to find... More

We took a Daisey sunset cruise with Captain Fred during our stay in Chincoteague. What a treat! The island is breathtaking at sunset and Captain Fred was a wealth of information on the wildlife and the history of the island. It was a relaxing and enjoyable ride on a well-maintained pontoon boat. We saw egrets, eagles and the wild ponies.... More

We took the sunset cruise with Captain Tom and Captain Louis on Sept. 2nd. It was just wonderful, couldn't have been any better. First, we saw two eagles, many osprey, herons and egrets. Next, a cocky stallion who performed for us, rolling on his back and prancing into the water, along with his harem of three painted ponies. On the... More

We just took the sunset cruise with Captain Fred on Aug 31. It was a fabulous experience and we were so excited to see many dolphins and best of all, good view of the ponies at 2 different locations. Captain Fred also took us to a nice spot so that we could watch the ponies in the front with the... More

Me, my sister and my best friend all went on a sunset cruise on August 24. It was what made the weekend. We got 10 unplanned minutes viewing the dolphins and my sister had never seen them in the wild. It was magical. The captain and mate were funny and informative. The boat trip was smooth and they accommodated those... More
