    Dan was very knowledgeable and personable. We could ask questions and have a conversation instead of listening to a canned presentation. His boat was very comfortable and he seemed to know exactly where to look to see the horses and other wildlife. It was a very memorable excursion!

    Wonderful boat tour, Captain Dan is knowledgable and friendly. My husband booked this tour for my birthday and it was glorious! We saw a lot of ponies happily living on the shore and beautifully majestic Eagles in their nests. This tour is a must on Chincoteague Island, thank you Captain Dan.

    Captain Dan was a very informative and entertaining tour guide. We weren't sure if we were going to see ponies or not, but we ended up seeing 15 on the regular tour! Going on this tour was the highlight of our trip. Definitely worth the money! I recommend this to anyone who is up for an adventure and just plain fun!

    Captain Dan is great. He went out of his way to make sure my wife got to see the ponies that she really wanted to see, even though the weather was not ideal. I would recommend him to anyone and we will be going again.

    Dan knows all the horses. Friendly and informative. Wear a jacket if you go in the evening.
