“Wonderful family friendly boat trip”
Reviewed July 15, 2013

We thoroughly enjoyed our boat trip with Barnacle Bill from Chincoteague Island to Assateague Island. Bill grew up on Chincoteague and has great local knowledge. We saw the lighthouse, many of the horses, eagles, etc. Wonderful trip for the kids and adults. We had some rain but Bill had good ponchos for us to use. If I could give Bill a ten-star rating I would. Absolutely wonderful in every way and highly recommended.

Captain Bill gave my husband, my teenage granddaughter, and me an excellent tour of the Chincoteague Island waters today. He was very knowledgeable and tried to meet our every need and desire. I highly recommend his tour.

“You're not just sightseeing, you're learning from Captain Bill!”
Reviewed June 16, 2013 via mobile

For Father's Day weekend, my family took a tour with Capt. Bill. And it was ... AWESOME!
We learned a little history, we saw some wildlife including 2 herds of wild ponies, a ton of birds, and a school of dolphins. He told a few jokes and even gave us the inside scoop on where to fish, where to dine, and showed us where the ponies take that yearly swim! Do you know how long it takes the ponies to cross the channel? Capt. Bill knows! Taking this tour is a must for first-timers and seasoned visitors alike! DO NOT MISS THIS BOAT PEOPLE!! Seriously! Oh, and my Dad, a sea lover himself, was absolutely thrilled!!!
