Went out with Nate and it was freezing! But they did warn us and we dressed warmly. They thoughtfully had warm blankets on board too. We were very fortunate to see dolphins right next to the boat. Apparently it was late in the season. We...More

Excellent guided tour of the waters between Assateague & Chincoteague Islands! You will see plenty of wildlife and of course the island ponies in their natural habitat. Give them a call and reserve a trip! It's well worth the money!

We really enjoyed our boat ride with Daisey's! We booked a six-seater boat, but the ocean was a little rough that evening, so they put all the people who'd paid for six-seaters on a larger boat and refunded us the difference in price. I'm glad...More

First, I highly recommend you go on an early cruise to see the wild ponies if that's what you want to do. I'm so glad I thought to ask and I was told the 9am-12pm tours would be the best time since it's high tide...More
