That's right, the best! Give Captain Henry a call for an outstanding tour on his very comfortable boat. We saw ponies up close and his knowledge of the area is first rate. We will be back for another tour when we visit next year. Trust me on this, there's really no reason to look any further!

We had a outstanding experience on captin Henry's tour. The ponies and dolphin sightings along with the clean and comfortable boat made our tour great. I would highly recommend this trip. It is an excellent value for priceless family memories and photos that our friends will be amazed by! Captain Henry made sure we had an enjoyable experience.

We needed something to do on our last day in Chincoteague and this was it! We were able to book a trip same day. It turned out to be the BEST way we could've ended our stay. We took our three girls, 7, 6 & 1, on a flat-bottom boat tour around Chincoteague Island. The boat operator/tour guide, Henry, was... More

I heard through friends that the Saltwater Pony Tour was great and they were so right!!!! Captain Henry was a great tour guide, his knowledge of Chincoteague and the wildlife. We saw ponies and a group of them were so close. I didn't expect that. I really enjoy myself. Looking forward to another ride!! Virginia P.

Capt. Henry was great….friendly, knowledgeable….everything a guide should be. He took the time to find out what we were interested in seeing and then made it happen. The highlight for us was seeing, not one, but two foals. It was a great trip and we would book again without a second thought.

The first Saltwater Pony Tour was so good — beautiful views, a bit of insight into the history and character of Chincoteague, not to mention the close-ups of ponies and dolphins — my husband and I came back for a second tour. And it was even better. We saw even wildlife, even an immature eagle and a sweet foal with... More

My husband and I took this boat tour in August of 2014. We had been to Chincoteague many times, but this was by far the best boat tour we have ever taken. His knowledge of the island (and obvious love of nature) was outstanding and his stories were very enjoyable. If you take a boat tour, this is the one... More

Captain Henry gave us a tour beyond our expectations. He was not satisfied that we just saw a few dolphins and went back to see if we could find some more and - oh boy - did we ever. It was incredible - the highlight of the trip! And we saw wild ponies too as well as lots of birds... More

Captain Henry was phenomenal. My family had a blast and enjoyed every single minute of our 2+ hour trip around the island. If we ever come back for vacation, will definitely do again. Is a must-do !!!
