My two boys, 10 and 7, and I took a banana boat ride with Captain Jay. We had a great time. Captain Jay and his mate were super friendly too. And it was not too expensive either.

Awesome 2 hour trip. Jay is very knowledgeable of Chincoteague, its history and nature. I highly recommend Captain Jay for an evening outing or a boat adventure.

Wanted a great tour without the crowd and got exactly that. We fished for two hours then spent the next two hours touring around the island. Captain Jay was very accommodating and informative. Highly recommend.

An impromptu weekend trip to Chincoteague Island and a sold out tour of another boat was serendipity for us. Capt. Jay was interesting, fun, informative, and we had the boat to ourselves! He is a newer business, and doesn't have the advertising that some of...More
