We are visiting from Buffalo, NY this week and today we did our Island tour. We came to see the pony's and we saw plenty. Carlton & Bill shared lots of information about the Pony's, Conch fishing, the various clam & oyster farms and loads of history about the area. Today was sunny but chilly. But have no fear, they...

We came to Chincoteague Island for a relaxing holiday get-away and to see the Assateague refuge and famous ponies. And that is exactly what Captain Carlton delivered! Highly professional and accommodating, Capt Carlton got us out to see the sights despite the challenging weather and shared his extensive knowledge of the area and the wildlife for a very personal tour....

I have both my mother-in-law and brother-in-law in visiting; and my brother-in-law had this idea to take a boat ride around the islands to see the ponies and ponies we saw. Captain Carlson gave us a great tour and lesson of the ponies and island. Even through it was 44 degrees we have a great time. So glad that Daisey's... More

Check in was simple, simple instructions to get to the alternate pick up locations (changed due to weather conditions), and an excellent guide (Bill) who was very knowledgeable on ponies, wildlife, and island history. While we had prepared for the cold & windy conditions by bringing our own foul weather gear, the other couple on our boat was a little... More

Our number one goal of our group was to see the ponies. Their service and knowledge of the area is impeccable. And we found ponies! They also have extra blankets for this time of year.... But still bundle up either way. We have used Miss Daisy before and no doubt we will again.

First of all my experience with Daisey's was with a private group. It was a 2 hour tour with about 20 of us (all photographers) with the goal to see as many horses as we could. They did not disappoint!!! We went straight to where the ponies were complete with the history, stories and identities of most of the horses... More

This was my second visit to Chincoteague and, once again, my fellow photographers and I were treated to an amazing boat tour by Daiseys! Everything was perfect, nice "vessel", pleasant, knowledgeable staff, wonderful trip. A trip to Chincoteague will not be complete, for me, without a Daisey's boat tour!

Beautiful cruise (did 2 this week alone). Captain Carlton and Captain Nate. Fantastic. Friendly and super knowledgeable Captains who know the island and waters surrounding, the wildlife and very importantly - what their passengers are interested in. Super friendly always fantastic! Most wonder Island cruise you can take. Greg
