Family friendly tours 7 days a week from April 1st to December 1st, trips are 2 to 3 hours. We limit our trips to only 6 passengers per boat, to maintain a semi-private setting, and allow for plenty of face time with your guide. With our two boats, we are able to accommodate groups up to 12. Local family owned and operated, your guide will be Captain Dan or his father Captain Ray. Our signature tour, the “Around the Island Tour”, is a family favorite. This trip has it all! We cruise over 25 miles of unique coastline, never passing the same spot twice. We go searching for wild ponies, dolphin, bald eagles (and other local wild fowl), sea turtles, and sting rays. Your captain is your guide, pointing out all the local wildlife, historic areas, and explaining the local customs and cultures, both past and present. We will travel completely around Chincoteague Island, while viewing the entire bayside coastline of Assateague Island in Virginia. « less

We are a floating classroom, a research vessel with HANDS-ON FEET-WET lessons. One of the many things we do is get off the boat on the sandbars to go DIG IN THE MUD FOR CLAMS. Maybe we can catch some to eat. Then it's back on the boat to cruise to a crabbing spot where you will Pull CRAB-POTS on board to identify and see the days catch. If you have the courage I will teach you how to HOLD A CRAB without getting pinched. Navigating our way to Shell Island Beach, we stop and get off the boat for some SHELL COLLECTING than back on the boat for Capt. Barry's favorite activity... hunting for jellyfish. we will then HAUL in the trawler net and will see that it is full of Marine life and sea creatures.... this is always a challenge! Time to slow the boat down to enter the shallow waters.... how many birds can you identify? we use all of our senses-SOUND,TOUCH,TASTE and SMELL- to make our cruises informative and fun. They are is never any pressure always lots of fun.. you can relax, sit back on the boat and be the official photographer, or you can get into it. This is the real deal to get your hands dirty and feet wet so you will experience the life of a Chincoteague Waterman. « less
