Our family took a small boat tour. Our captain Nate was friendly, informative. He spotted so easily: bald eagles, osprey, Dolphins and ponies out to our untrained eyes! Our trip was very memorable with observing many Dolphins - several moms with young calfs. Definitely recommend this company!

We took a two hour cruise on a large pontoon boat. We got good views of the island from the water. The coolest thing was that they found a large pod of dolphins and we drifted for about 30 minutes with dolphins on all sides. My two granddaughters, 8 and 9, really enjoyed it. My husband and i liked it... More

We had a great time watching dolphins swim, seeing ponies in the distance, seeing the moon beside the light house and seeing a beautiful sunset. Aidan our guide was so enthusiastic which added to the fun. The trip by boat gave you a better perspective of the relationship between the 2 islands.

The cruise was very relaxing, captain was very knowledgeable about the island and the night turned out to be just right for a sunset cruise, the sunset was amazing.

We actually have gone on a Daisy cruise twice, it was so much fun. Our captain and guide is a local teacher, so he was extremely knowledgeable about the Island and its history and wildlife. On our second cruise, we encountered an amazing herd of ponies right on the beaches of Assateague. We were so close, and the ponies were... More

The highlight of our stay on Chincoteague. We did the small-boat tour and loved being out on the water. It would have been two hours well spent even if we hadn't gotten up close to some ponies and seen a dolphin, a bald eagle, and an osprey. The guide was amiable and knowledgeable. I think I was afraid the experience... More

We enjoyed a sunset cruise, and I have no complaints. The captain was a terrific guide. He was able to get our boat alongside a group of dolphins at the beginning of our cruise and again at the end when they were feeding on a school of small fish. The dolphins were surfacing right beside our boat. He was also... More

This was our second Sunset Cruise with Daisey's Island Sunset Cruise. It was as wonderful as the first! Sandy is an excellent tour guide, and told us great stories about the island's history while taking us to see all the points of interest. We were able to stay at a location as long as we needed to get pictures and... More
