The tour was absolutely amazing! So much more than what we were expecting. Capt.John was very informative and entertaining. We learnt a lot about the islands and the surrounding wildlife. He broughtus very close to the ponies and wesaw all kinds of birds including egrets, bold eagle andoyster catchers. But then....dolphins showed up! It was like icing on the cake!... More

First I will say I had a fun day fishing with my partner on a 14ft skiff with a bimini top. We each caught a couple and I caught two crabs by fluke. The skiffs are very stable compared to v bottom boats. But I would advise against getting a skiff here. We wanted a 6hp one for $100 a... More

Thank you for your feedback. Snug Harbor has been renting boats for over 50 years and we take great pride in giving all customers a world class experience. I am so sorry that you wanted a 6hp motor but the bad news is that we don't rent those any longer only the 9.9hp and the 8hp motors. It does seem... More

Then came the pressure.She told us how booked they were and we needed to reserve the boat that minute with a substantial non refundable deposit.She went on to tell us... More

My husband and I decided we wanted to rent a two-person kayak for the day instead of take a boat tour and we were so glad we did. We rented the kayak and it was $62 and we opted for the $15 upgrade so we could have it after 5PM (just get it back before dark as there were no... More

In June 2016, I was both blessed and fortunate enough to be a guest of Snug Harbor for the entire month for a dream fishing vacation. My only request was for a clean boat and a reliable outboard motor. The staff at Snug Harbor delivered on both ends for me the entire month. Thanks to owners John and Basia, I... More

My family and I have been going to Chincoteague for several years and Snug harbor is our favorite place to go and hangout. You can always have a good time there whether you are sitting done watching the water or going on one of the boat rides. Either way, you'll surely have a good time. Everyone that works there is...

Well, we didn't rent the pontoon this year - but- we have! We've also rented (and enjoyed it) the kayaks. One daughter tried the paddle board! This year, my husband, 2 teenage daughters & one of their friends, went out on one of the Carolina skiffs to an area they call Little Beach. We had the boat from 10 a... More

We rented a small Skiff with 9.9hp and we had a blast! We spent all day crusing, fishing and crabbing. It was worth every penny. Kids caught lots of crabs and just watching them was a lot of fun. The area where you can take a boat is restricted some but plenty space to enjoy a day on the water.... More

Rented boats for the day here with the intent of going to a beach nearby. Were told where to go but it was high tide and beach not there. Was not told that when we set out. Could only go in the bay area in a small radius. Expected to go out further but again not told ahead of time... More

These people are in the running for the 2016 Looney Tune award, which is giving out every season to the craziest customer of the year! This group wanted to go to the beach by boat and the staff tried to explain to them that during high tide that beach access would be limited but the group wanted to go anyway.... More
