“Big disappointment - do not go!”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 16, 2012

This trip was no more than a short boat ride to Assateague Island. When we got to the island we were given 15 minutes to "explore". When we asked the tour guide about the assateague wild ponies, he pointed us in two different directions - either of which would be quite a hike from where we were. All the exhibits were shown to the tourists on the boat on the way back from the island. We did not see anything while we were on the island.
If you are really interested in seeing the wild ponies, I suggest you drive to the island. This trip was a waste of time. I highly recommend 'Sea Rocket' if you want to have a boat ride.

A wonderful boat tour to see the wild horses. Knowledgable tour guide. Over an hour tour. It was a delightful tour.

“Good for little kids, older folks”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 23, 2012

This is an easy way to spend a couple of hours. It's not a fast trip, and the crew was friendly. We went in the evening before dinner, so it was a nice way to kill some time for the price, an no one got wet!
It would have been nice to see more of the island and more ponies, but you get what you get I suppose. What we did see was pretty cool.

“Wished we saw more of the island and horses”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 23, 2012 via mobile

This tour is reasonably priced but more for a younger family. Wished we had more sights of around the island area. Great hands on experience for the kids to local marine life.

“nice for children/family”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 3, 2012

Second time we have been on the 1 1/2 hr tour. You get a quick tour of the bay and some of the homes, then off to Assateague island to see the horses and also a shore stop were you can get off boat and walk around with nets looking for critters.Crew also has some hands on crabs and shells to interact with. Very reasonable price esp with coupons in local magazines. My granddaughter really enjoyed herself as did I.
