We had a knowledgable captain and a nice boat ride to see the wild ponies. I'm terrible with names, but the captain ?Reggie? was really entertaining and worked hard to make sure we saw the ponies and had a good time.

Captain Brett is an excellent guide. Friendly, funny, knowledgeable of the island. We didn't see many ponies this trip, but he made sure it was still interesting for the kids.
