Proud Mary Charters has two boats. Capt. George takes people for bay fishing trips and Capt. Mary takes up to six people for Custom Nature tours. The nature tours include looking for wild ponies, dolphins and seeing Chincoteague and Assateague Island. You can also pull crab traps and keep the catch or cruise to another barrier island to collect shells.
