OUTSTANDING cruise! Highly recommend. Nate and Russ were extremely knowledgeable and professional. We truly enjoyed the experience. Saw many horses both on Chincoteague and Asseateague islands. We were so close we could have reached out and touched them. The sunset was amazing. Thank you Nate...More

Took a sunset tour with Nate. Words can't express how great of time we had. Will not find tour guide that loves his job more. Saw lots of ponies, Osprey and bald eagles. Thanks again Nate for wonderful time for whole family.

Beautiful late afternoon tour. Captain Nate was fantastic. He is a Chincoteague local and knows so much that it is incredible. Had a great time! And saw things I have seen before and many that I haven't! Really great!

We are staying in Pocomoke City, Md because everything was booked for a one night stay in Chincoteague and many required a 5 night stay. Can you give me directions from Pocomoke to your take off point.? We are going on the "swim back" July 29th.
