Toured on a sunny morning in early June. Captain Tom handled the boat like a pro, and his knowledge of the ponies and other local info made our sightseeing cruise educational as well as enjoyable. The entire staff was friendly, and the service was first rate from the time I talked to Roxanne for reservations to the time we departed the dock house after our cruise. It was well worth the price to see the Chincoteague ponies up close (within 100 feet on the marsh shore), after a bonus excursion out into the Atlantic to spot some dolphins & a couple of sea turtles. There was also a pair of nesting ospreys on a piling at the mouth of Chincoteague Bay. My family highly recommends the Daisey's Island Cruise service.

We visit Chincoteague once or twice a year for a long weekend and have taken a cruise with Daisey's dockside 5 or 6 times....always a great experience! Every guide we have had has been extremely friendly and very knowledgeable about all things Chincoteague. We went out on a cruise this morning with Scott as our guide and had another wonderful experience. The wildlife wasn't very cooperative but Scott went above and beyond to find some ponies for us...even extending the trip a bit to make sure everyone saw some ponies and got to take all the pictures they wanted. I can't say enough good things about this company...I have and would definitely recommend them to anyone looking to have a fun and relaxing time on the water!

This was our first trip to Chincoteague and our friends told us to be sure and do a cruise in search of dolphins, horses, etc. So we went with Daisey cruises and were lucky enough to have Nathan as our captain - he was super knowledgable, fun and easy to talk with. He went above and beyond the call of duty to make sure we got 'up close and personal' with the wild horses (within 10 feet!) and that we had a great time. I also liked the wonderful touch of them having warm quilts you can wrapped around yourself and your sweetie to stay warm.

Thanks Nathan!
