Captain Nate was amazing! He knew so much about Chincoteague history, the ponies, and other wildlife. He allowed us extra time because we found a group of new mommies and ponies.

Yes we take kids of all ages. Our 10 time in season is the most affordable for families. It is an educational fun tour. We also do custom tours as well if you want to book a private cruise.
