Captain Charlie is the MAN! This is not your typical cruise. Captain Charlie is at your service and he will make sure that you get to go back to shore with a ton of memories, and if it's pictures your looking for you will have plenty to share with friends and family, from the one of a kind homes to...

Captain Charlie was great with my kids, ages 9, and 6. He made sure they felt comfortable right off the bat, introducing himself and asking their names. He also had some binoculars ready, and even had some coats ready for us. :) We had a great tour of the island. He had a few fun things for the kids to... More

We were the first outing for Captain Charlie after the winter break. He is one of the greatest guys who really loves what he does and imparts that to his clients. He knows the water and the wildlife and he tailor-made our adventure after listening to our interests. I think we saw more than 20 ponies in at least 3... More

My wife and I, along with our two year old, took a tour with Captain Charlie. He was excellent, and really tried to do all he could to make it a good time for our family. He made sure he included our two year old son in the conversation, and you could tell he really cares about people. We got... More

last week we went on a tour with captain charlie. I have been in the service business (home inspector) for 25 years and i understand customer delight - and charlie delivered 100%. He was perfect. Great ability to put the customer at ease, great humor, a little showmanship - but not too much, and a great teacher, and most important... More

This past weekend CC&NT took my wife and I out for sunset and sunrise photo shoots of the ponies. Capt. Charlie listened carefully to what we were looking for and delivered 100%. He found the ponies and Mother Nature delivered the light. The comfortable (and dry) Carolina Skiff was brought close to shore where we were able to safely hop... More

My daughter and I always try to take a short vacation in September. This year we decided to go to a place we had never been before. When I called the Chamber of Commerce on Chincoteague the woman suggested a boat tour. I checked Trip Advisor for ratings and comments. EVERYTHING that has been said about Captain Charlie is true...

We want to let everyone know what a great trip we had to Chincoteague the first week of June. Our oldest daughter had just graduated from College and our youngest had just become a high school senior and we wanted a trip that both would remember and that had some memories for each. Both of our girls are horse lovers... More
