On our afternoon  "Pony Tour" we manage our time, so we can explore areas not traveled on our "Around the Island Tour". This trip takes no specific route, but it's goal is to find ponies. This trip might not travel around the island, or see the lighthouse, we have a singular focus of finding ponies. Our "Pony Tour" may travel up to 40 miles, in 2.5 hours. Our fee for this trip is $40 per adult, $35 for children under 12. We offer a $5 per person discount for payments made by cash or personal check. This trip may be on our larger 14 passenger boat. To make the trip available daily, we have removed the money back guarantee, and also reduced the rate to our standard fee.

We offer morning, afternoon and evening tours. Reservations are recommended. These are personalized tours with maximum of 6 guest on our 25' boats. We do have two boats and can accommodate groups of up to 12 by coordinating the trips.

Our around the Island tours are 2 - 2.5 hours in duration. You will travel approximately 22 miles passing completely around the Island of Chincoteague and between Chincoteague and the Island of Assateague.  You will have the opportunity to view the ponies, birds and other wildlife that frequent the Islands and marshes in the area, as available. Also we travel through waters where a variety of sea life can often be seen including dolphin, large rays and sea turtles.

A note about the weather: Because we are not professional meteorologists we will err on the side of caution. The Captain will cancel any trip when he deems the approaching weather to be inappropriate for a safe and enjoyable trip.  If we must disappoint you, we would rather it happened at the dock where you are safe than on one of the remote sections of the Island's waterways, in the midst of  a thunder and lightning storm. Please see our "Green",  "Yellow"  and "Red" weather classifications on the "Frequently Asked Questions" page.
