Captain Henry gave us the best experience of our vacation in Chincoteague! We saw lots of wild ponies up close, Eagles, turtles, and Henry provided all the info and history we could've hoped for. We highly recommend his tours and will definitely go out with him again next time we're in town. Thanks Henry!

This was a fantastic trip. Very personable and tailored to our group. We took the sun set tour, saw an eagle, several osprey, dolphins, pelicans and of course the ponies. Was very worth the money and we will do this again with Cpt. Henry!

We took a 6 pm sunset tour with a total of 6 passengers and the captain. Captain Henry was pleasant and very relaxed, generously taking time to really search for Dolphins, which sadly did not show themselves. He gave plenty of time for pictures, provided information of interest, answered our questions, and got us up to two pony herds grazing... More

Captain Henry was a friendly and knowledgeable guide who provided us with a fun boat trip around the island and great, close views of the ponies and their foals, which were all out playing and grazing this day. He also provided plenty of time for photos and answered all our questions. The boat seated 6, was sturdy and comfortable, had... More

We took a 9am boat ride with Captain Henry. The first thing he did was head out to the ocean in search of dolphins. Before we knew it we were surrounded by them. Dolphins were surfacing all around us, what a beautiful sight! After spending some time with the dolphins we began to head back to look for the ponies.... More

We were lucky enough to find Captain Henry and book a tour for our recent vacation to our favorite spot EVER! I don't know why we never did this before. Captain Henry was awesome! We had our two younger children with us and Captain Henry engaged them with interesting facts and sights and let them play boat captain! The boat... More

Saltwater pony boat tours truly kept us from "horsing around" with constant excitement, beautiful views, and plenty of wildlife. Are you looking for a good way to experience the beauty of Chincoteague and the surronding islands??? Well captain Henry is your man! We saw so many ponies that I thought I was gonna turn into one! All in all it... More

Thanks to Captain Henry my family and I had a unique opportunity to view several pony groups, including foals of varying ages, up close and personal. He made sure we had more than enough time for both pictures and to just enjoy viewing the ponies. His boat was able to navigate very shallow waters to give us this one of... More

Very knowledgable guide, quick and eager to answer all of our questions, and was able to show us all the famous, and not so famous, but equally fascinating (and gorgeous) parts of the islands. Highly recommended.

We took my son, daughter in law and young grandchildren to Chincoteague for a family vacation. We wanted them to see the ponies up close and this was a wonderful way to do that! Captain Henry made sure that we got as close as possible and gave us plenty of time for pictures. He is knowledgeable about the area and... More
