3.5 – 4 hour interactive tour
Encompassing all that Chincoteague and Assateague have to offer, this comprehensive island journey takes passengers all the way around Chincoteague Island (weather permitting) and makes many stops to view herds of ponies, spot wildlife, hear some local history, and visit our clam and oyster grounds to harvest, shuck, and sample some of our clams and oysters. This cruise combines our pony tour and our shellfish tour, but also goes all the way around the island, so you have the potential to see dolphins, eagles, ospreys, and other seasonal wildlife as well.
