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!

We did the 4 -6PM tour with Captain Bill. It was fabulous. He was so informative and friendly. We saw dolphin pods, bald eagles, blue heron and lots of other birds. He gave us a great background on Wallops NASA facility and a lot about the history and reason for the pony swim. Very interesting. The pontoon boat is very... More

So glad to have experienced Daisey's Island Cruises. Captain Fred was so personable, friendly and informative about the islands. This was our first time to this area, and it was nice to learn about the local history and activities. We saw the ponies grazing, and he told us all about them and their names. We saw many types of birds,... More
