The owners entertained us with info about the island while we waited for cruise. The boat had 6 passengers but could seat a few more comfortably; and it was clean.The tour guide was friendly,informative, and didn't try to rush through it.

The sunset cruise is great! Captain Bob made sure we saw birds, dolphins, and ponies!
I particularly wanted to see birds ad was not disappointed.
Very comfortable boat and nice people. Very knowledgeable guide.
Do take several layers of jackets because it really gets cold when the sun goes down.
Worth every penny!!!

Our sunset tour with Captain Nate was just great.

The good experience started with Roxanne, who handled the reservation. When she found out we have two small kids, she put us on a boat with that holds about 20 people (and so had room to move around a little) and had a bathroom, which was much appreciated.

Captain Nate has a great mix of deep knowledge of the island and its wildlife and skill at connecting with people. He was able to share lots of interesting stories and make everyone feel at ease without ever being overbearing. In terms of wildlife, we didn't see any dolphins, but we saw a number of bald eagles (both nesting and in flight). And when the ponies were not quick to show themselves, Captain Nate put in a phone call, found out that they were about 5 miles up the island, and high-tailed it up there, giving us a superb viewing opportunity of maybe a dozen ponies.

From there, it was a lovely cruise back to the dock as the sun went down, offering gorgeous twilight views of both Assateague and Chincoteague. One of the highlights of our trip.
