“Great communication, fabulous captain”
Review of Spider's Explorer

Spider's Explorer
Reviewed 23 June 2016

We booked a sunset cruise for our anniversary weekend with Captain Spider and were sad to learn it was scheduled to storm that night. Captain Spider was great about keeping in touch with us and up on the latest radar weather conditions. He even offered to reschedule the next day in between other scheduled tours. While we didn't get to go because the seas were still choppy and it was super gusty (would have made for a miserable ride), we really appreciated all Captain Spider did to accommodate us on our visit. We'll definitely be back in better weather!

Each year we tour with Spider. In addition to horses we see eagles and dolphins. Our yearly trip helps us keep up with changes on the Island. We get restaurant reviews, check in on the aqua farmers and see the changes that the ocean storms make. Spider is a great guide. He's prepared with binoculars, water and lots of stories. Tell him Beth and Sue from Ohio say "See you soon."

Captain Spider was wonderful to tour with. He has tons of knowledge and knows all the good spots to view wild ponies. Tour lasted about 2 hours, was so fun! Will definitely return for another tour and would recommend this tour to anyone. He was funny, personable and very professional. The sunset tour was beautiful, absolute peace and serenity.

Our family took a ride with Spider on our last day there. He is so funny and enjoyable to talk to. He has tons of knowledge about the island and does his very best to get you a great photo of the wild ponies. Book early tho, he is a busy man, and you don't want to miss his tour. Worth every penny!

Captain Spider married me and my now husband this past Friday, then took us on a boat tour of the island. He was very easy to work with, went out of his way to make sure our ceremony and sunset tour was exactly what we wanted, and provided history of the island. He made our wedding day very special, and we are very thankful!
