“Enjoyable Boat Ride, Great Scenary, Great Stories”
Reviewed July 27, 2014

Our family of five with teens enjoyed this wonderful tour around the islands. The fabric seats were very comfortable and were newly done we were told. My favorite photo of our trip was the one Captain Spider took of our family on the water with the lighthouse in the backdrop. Captain Spider made this trip special and stopped for us to take photos of the ponies. It was a beautiful morning and a perfect end to our vacation.

“Great value, great experience”
Reviewed July 21, 2014

We were on Spider's 10AM trip several days ago. This was the highlight of our time on Chincoteague. He was a gentleman, knowledgeable about the island, and seemed to enjoy sharing his stories.

We saw the ponies on three separate occasions, osprey with hatchlings, eagles, dolphins, and other water fowl. You go around the entire island of Chincoteague. Spider only takes 6 people at a time on tours so it is very intimate; we were lucky as it was only the two of us! He didn't cancel the trip or charge us more for what became a private tour! And, he was one of the cheapest tours we noted.

We recommend him highly!

“Best view of the ponies swimming”
Reviewed July 20, 2014

We went to see the pony swim with Spider. We had an awesome view and he was great company. We went a few years ago but we would definately go with Spider the next time. We have saved his business card not something we would normally do.

“Highlight of the trip”
Reviewed July 19, 2014

My two daughters, wife and I had a fantastic time exploring the beauty of this area. Captain Spider was very accommodating, knowledgeable, and professional. He knew the answer to all our questions and was able to point out tons of wildlife and made sure we were able to get as close as possible to the ponies. He is one of the few that go completely around the island and his price is better than most of the other offerings. Highly recommend him!!
