“Absolutley best boat tour you can find!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 14, 2011

Captain Jay and Joe were phenomenal tour guides! Their boat was comfortable and spacious for our group of 8. Both were full of knowledge and took us to all of the great spots for pictures and got us as close as possible to the ponies as well! Nothing but wonderful words from our Illinois, New Jersey, and Virginia families. I'd absolutely do it again and recommend them to anyone! Absolutely great time!

“You won't be disappointed!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 9, 2011

My husband, I and our kids really enjoyed our time with Capt. Jay and Joe. We were thrilled they could accommodate our party of 7. We saw plenty of ponies, a bald eagle, even a male Osprey guarding a nest while the female hunted. Jay was a great captain. He spent some time showing us the boat features and even let the kids each take a turn "steering." Joe had a wealth of information about the area and the ponies. My son reviewed his bird guide, and we all enjoyed his photo album with information about the annual crossing. You won't be disappointed!

“Excellent boat tour”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 29, 2011

Jay and Joe gave an awesome boat tour. They took us to all the prime locations for wildlife spotting and the sunset and never made us feel like they were in a rush. They both seem to genuinely enjoy their work and it shows in every aspect of the tour from the cleanliness and comfort of the boat to their extensive knowledge of the island history and its resident wildlife. We thoroughly enjoyed our tour and would recommend it to anyone.

“Scenic, informative and comfortable Assateague Island boat tour.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 26, 2011

Captain Jay and Joe run a great trip. Saw lots of wild horses, birds, and the Assateague Lighthouse on a leisurely cruise on a clean and comfy pontoon boat. Joe supplied the narrative which included lots of the island's history and interesting facts about the sights. Captain Jay handled the boat and made all the passengers feel safe and secure. This was my second trip with them and I would recommend them highly. !st time was with 3 other friends, 2nd time was with a group of 12.. If you are planning a trip to Chincoteague, this is a "must do".

“Get the gang together - this is fun.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 18, 2011

Our group of eight was more than confortable as we learned about Chincoteague and Assateague Islands. Loads of birds, including a bald eagle, and ponies so young they were still a bit wobbly. Bring the wine and cheese for a great cruise.
