Arranged for this sunset cruise and wasn't expecting to see so much on the last night of our 7 day stay in Chincoteague. We didn't see the ponies on this cruise but we got pictures in a unique view of the Assateague Lighthouse, learned about the oyster & clam industry and got to see dolphins. Along the way, Joe filled... More

We took our grandchildren for a cruise and thought we would be in for a rough 2 hours.. We were wrong. The kids sat and listened to the stories Joe told. They were also told that if they were good they would get a surprise. Well between the stories Joe told and the promise of a surprise it was a... More

Joe was a great host. He came prepared with coffee, juice, water, soda, danish and muffins AND a place to use the restroom while we waited for the ponies. It was great to have a front row seat to the swim and we knew we were in good hands with Joe

My friends and I stumbled upon this tour, but we were not disappointed at all! The tour guide had done his research and is a local, so he knows what he is talking about. The tour was 2 hours long and it was filled with information about the island, it's history, the horses, and all the details you would want... More

We are a party of 6 - 1 Grandpa, 2 parents, 3 kids (ages 3,5,7). Chose Assateague Adventure over the myriad of other boats because they make a big deal about safety - important to us when travelling with a senior and 3 small kids. Captain Jay and First Mate Joe are very experienced and committed to both safety and... More

I went on this cruise with my husband about a week ago. We have lived in the area for several years but never really explored. We had a great time and found out many things about the area. The captains were extremely nice and informative. The wildlife that surrounds the area were pointed , including the ponies :) It was... More

I took my daughter and her boyfriend on the cruise and it was awesome! Had a great, relaxing time and the Captains were very nice. They even took pitures of the crew with the Lighthouse in the background. We got to see Ospreys also. I will definitely make it a point to go on the same cruise next time I... More

Took my wife and daughter out on the sunset cruise on 5/25/13. We had a great time. The owner and boat captain went way out of their way to make sure we were happy with their service. The tour went longer than I expected (a good thing) because they took their time showing us many local points of interest, explaining... More

My family did the sunset cruise. Very knowledgeable and informative about the history of the island, wildlife and surroundings. We saw ponies, pelicans, a bald eagle, herons and ospreys nesting up close as well as a beautiful sunset. This is a coast guard approved boat. We had a great time!

We took our daughter and 4 grandchildren on this trip and all had a delightful time. This is one of the few boats we found that was coast guard approved for more than 6 people. We were glad we found this trip. It was not a great day for seeing the horses - they were pretty far off, but the... More
