Captain Carlton Leonard was the perfect guide for our tour of the waterways between Chincoteague and Assateague Islands. With deep family roots on the island, he had a lot of history to share. And he knew where to find the ponies! A fun and educational outing.

We had Captain Fred, who is extremely friendly and was great with our kids. It was freezing when we went and he had blankets to wrap up the kids in. His knowledge of the area was great, he knew a little something about everything! And he knew exactly where to go to see the ponies. I would love to do... More

We had a great day on the water with this tour. We saw so much in terms of wildlife, and got a great history lesson about the island. Our 4, 6, and 8 year old each had a blast! Up close and personal to the ponies on the beach - the highlight of our long weekend in Chincoteague and Assateague.... More

The guides were so friendly and knowledgeable! We have young children and they were very friendly with them, even allowing our son to blow the boat horn! The scenery was fantastic and it is such a wonderful way to see more of the islands and to learn about the historic Eastern Shore community. It was the highlight of our trip... More

Capt. Carlton & Capt. Bill were AWESOME! We really enjoyed our cruise. We saw ponie, duck and eagles. Even though it was only 30 degrees we had a great time.

Captain Carlton knows everything there is to know about the wildlife in the area. He took me and my two friends on a two hour trip around the islands and gave us an incredible, up-close look at the ponies and the birds who live there. I highly suggest giving him a call, he's very flexible about timing and runs tours... More

I and a close friend worked with Daisey's to set up a 4-hour tour to Assateague to see the ponies. This was in early February -- very cold outside, and we weren't certain we would actually see the ponies, even though Daisey's had assured us. They were absolutely fantastic! They promised the captain would be at the port to meet... More

Captain Carlton was very knowledgeable about all the Chincoteague history and wildlife found there, he is very friendly and personable. We saw many birds and horses while on this tour all of which he knew by name. An overall great experience, will definitely be going again.

Our captain took us out for a two-hour tour of the local waters, and gave us a great look at the ponies on Assateague and all kinds of bird life. We saw an eagle, an orange-billed Oyster Catcher and a comorant, plus a lot of others whose names I don't remember. What was even better was the history of the... More
