I really enjoyed the tour. Our Tour Guide's name, a woman, unfortunately, I forgot. But she was a native and so knowledgeable. In addition, she was very engaging and entertaining with a great sense of humor. It was perfect!

Very enjoyable cruise on a covered boat. Excellent narration with lots of OC history and nature facts. Nice opportunity to walk on Assateague beach and got to see wild ponies and a few bonus dolphins. Highly recommend this tour!
