We're coming down in August, and initially I was considering booking a boat tour to get a better view of the ponies and maybe some dolphins, despite the fact that I am a terribly motion-sick person. Now that our vacation is getting closer, I'm starting to chicken out. Here's what I'm wondering: while staying in Chincoteague, we've also planned a day trip up to Ocean City MD and the MD side of Assateague. In your opinions, will that be enough of a pony experience for me to warrant not doing a boat tour? Or is the boat tour a must-see while on the island? Thanks for any replies!
