Captain Henry gave four of us today July 22nd, a most wonderful tour around the Island of Chincoteague, including a visit to the Southern most tip of Assateague Island. Henry was most informative, and during our tour we saw four different groups of the famous Assateague ponies on different parts of the Island. We also followed several pods of Dolphins,... More

We were lucky enough to have a private and incredible evening tour with Captain Henry who found wildlife in every corner of the waterways during our two hour tour.. The best, of course, was the up close and personal view of ponies drinking from the shore - we were only a few feet away!! Henry is so knowledgeable about the... More

This tour was incredible! The captain was both knowledgeable and fun. He went out of his way to speak with everyone and to find out what we wanted to see on the boat ride. If we wanted to linger in one area or move on to the next, he always followed our wishes. We spotted dolphins in the distance and... More

Captain Henry met us right on time, as scheduled at the Island Resort for our tour. We had a fantastic couple hours touring the Assateague and Chincoteague waterways. We were fortunate enough to see three groups of pony's and a pod of dolphins! Captain Henry is extremely knowledgeable about the history of the pony's, the islands and the area in... More

Saltwater Pony Tours exceeded our expectations of touring the island. Captain Henry went out of his way to make sure that our family had a fantastic tour by going out of his way to find dolphins in the ocean, view nesting ospreys, see possible bald eagle sightings, and find several herds of the islands famous ponies. His boat is small... More

Saw everything -- ponies, eagles, and houses in the middle of the bay. Henry could not only answer all our questions but shared lots of fun factoids.

Henry was absolutely fantastic! He took us all the way around the island and his boat was shallow enough to get up close to the ponies where other tours couldn't go. He also went out of his way to look for dolphins in Tom's Cove. We were lucky enough to see a huge group of them and got to stop... More

Captain Henry ensures everyone on the boat has a great time and you WILL see horses. We called Captain Henry and luckily he had a cancellation due to weather - we lucked out! He is one of only two tour companies which will take you all the way around the island. He is well versed in the history of Chincoteague... More

I had the pleasure of traveling with Captain Henry around the island on his tour boat this past weekend. He was very cordial and knowledgeable about the Island and its history. He did not rush the trip at all which was great for me since I am a photographer and want to take my time photographing the animals and the... More

My parents traveled to the Eastern Shore from Texas to see the beach, the SEA and we stayed in Chincoteague so we could be literally a 5 minute drive to the National Wildlife Refuge. So, much to my chagrin, we awoke on Tuesday, October 1 to realize that the US government had decided to SHUT DOWN THE OCEAN. Yes, our... More
