Tour with us to find the Outer Banks Wild Spanish Colonial Mustang Horses and discover some of the most unique sights OBX has to offer. Our friendly and knowledgeable tour guides take you onto pristine northern beaches that are accessible only with a 4x4 off-road vehicle.



Wild Horse Adventure Tours (W.H.A.T.) has been voted the #1 tour company in the USA and #1 "thing to do" in the Outer Banks by TripAdvisor.

New for 2014, Wild Horse Adventure Tours is proud to offer Humvee Adventure Tours! Feel the ocean breeze and taste the salty beach air as you cruise the Outer Banks beaches in our exclusive OPEN AIR, 13-passenger Humvees with one of our seasoned guides in search of the Colonial Spanish Mustangs! With the added capabilities of our custom designed open air Hummer H1s, we venture into three previously inaccessible and distinct ecosystems teeming with wildlife of all types! New exclusive rights to the Wild Horse Sanctuary in Swan Beach allow us to view the horses in their natural environment.



With more terrain, no two tours are ever the same; so if you like history, ecology, adventure, and quick-witted comedy, we have you covered.



Our Hummer H1 vehicles have been customized with your safety in mind. All designs have been over-engineered to build the safest and most comfortable ride possible.

The roll cage is built into the frame of the vehicle for ultimate protection.

Seats have seatbelts and restraint systems for child seats.

All seats are actual car seats -no boat-style bench seats or plastic bucket seats are used in our vehicles.

An additional upper windshield with a top made with a combination of fine mesh and clear plastic enables occupants a 360-degree view while also providing protection from UV rays and unexpected inclement weather.

After customization, the Humvee is capable of seating 13 passengers with more leg room than any standard SUV. Individual seats that are 21 inches wide (no bench seats), in a stadium seating configuration, offer ultimate comfort and visibility for all.

Federal Protection of Horses:

"On January 3, 2013, H.R. 126 was first introduced to Congress by NC Congressman Walter B. Jones. It failed to pass the senate that session. In June of 2013, it passed the House vote again (unanimously), and it now needs to pass the U.S. Senate to become law. Our hopes remain high.

H.R. 126 is critical to the long-term survival of the Corolla wild horses, and it requires no additional funding from the federal government. YOU CAN HELP! Please contact your federal Representatives and tell them that you support H.R. 126 and want them to do so as well."

  • My aunt and I went on this excursion yesterday, the 7:30 am tour. They were incredibly organized and punctual. We each were in the passenger seat on two separate trucks (best seats in the vehicle). My tour guide Richard was Knowledgeable and friendly and truly had a passion for these horses (and the loggerhead turtles- a personal passion of mine as well). We saw three harems and two solo mares at the beach. The tour was amazing and honestly would have enjoyed it regardless of our many horse sightings. Simply amazing- go!!!! And I was told to make sure to include the three important rules, donโ€™t get get close to the horses, donโ€™t feed the horses and so t try to get their attention- these arenโ€™t your average horse!!!!
  • Kristen, our tour guide, was a wealth of information and knew all about the wild horses and their habitat. She expertly drove the Hummer to the best spots for wildlife viewing of more than just the abundance of horses! The tour is perfectly timed and reasonably priced. The seats were leather and comfortable with a covering over the entire cab. I know a lot more about wild horses and their environment than I expected. We definitely know to stay 50 feet away from the horses and NEVER feed them.
  • Amazing! Truly a great experience. My sister booked this trip as a gift for all of us while on vacation for the first time to the area. Our driver , whose nickname is Tree, was the best. He showed us a great time, taught us a lot about the area, and was very funny. We got really lucky and were able to see a lot of horses and a bald eagle. Itโ€™s nice to have such an engaging tour guide. You can tell he really enjoys what he does. Thank you so much! I would definitely do this again next time I am down here- highly recommend!!
  • I have experienced two tours with Wild Horse Adventure Tours in the past few years. Both times have been absolutely incredible! The guides do everything they can to make sure you find wild horses on the tour. Most recently, Ned (our tour guide) was extremely knowledgeable about not only the many horses we saw on the tour, but also the local history. He consistently checked in to make sure everyone felt comfortable and safe on the ride as well. The team works wonderfully together and all seem to truly enjoy what they do. I would book with them again without hesitation.
  • Excellent adventure. I have took this tour twice now with this company and it is well worth the money. The Hummer is awesome!! My fellow "big people" you wont have any trouble getting into or fitting into the seats and seat belts on this ride. Just ask for front row with seat belt extender. The trip was amazing and so was our tour guide/driver. The horses are in my eyes just a marvel to watch. I am awe struck everytime I see them. If you want a truly wonderful experience book with Wild Horse Adventures!!
