We went on the morning kayak tour with Basia. It was perfect. The weather was nice, the water was calm and the nature was out :) Basia- our guide took us to the places we would never see on our own. She knew which creeks to take to get to certain places which was very helpful and stress free. We... More

A weekend in Chincoteague is not about fancy hotels,spa and restaurants. It's all about hiking -biking -fishing and kayaking . It's about local fishmarket and your own best grill recipes. It's about the best homemade ice cream place . It's riding the bike to the ocean beach, where you find no one. Perfect kayak tour with friends and family. How... More

So much fun and you get to see such beautiful wildlife and views! On the kayak tour Basia will take you to the wild ponies along the marsh lands. They are just beautiful to see. The lighthouse was close by which still works today. You see various kinds of birds on this tour and much more. We watched one kayaker... More

I usually skip bad reviews and focus my reviews to highlighting really great experiences. However, renting a double kayak here really left me feeling like I was mislead and overcharged and I wanted to warn others. First, They rent whole day and half day. So, if you are renting half day, do not come before twelve. We got on the... More

Thank you Mary from New Jersey for your feedback. Let me say that people never stop surprising me. Let me give a little feedback on Ms. Mary from New Jersey. From the start the staff complained about the customer being very rude and disrespectful and demanded FREE service. Chincoteague is a small town and we still do things the old... More

We were told by friends that this was one of the best tours in Chincoteague and took a chance. We started our grand adventure at sunrise and considering we were on vacation it was very hard for me to get the family motivated that early but was able to drag everyone out of bed. It was worth getting up early... More

Let me start off by saying I would have given them 4 or 5 stars had they not been sketchy with the pricing. This kind of thing just bothers me. I called in the morning to inquire about a canoe rental. I was informed that they had 1 left that wasn't reserved so I went ahead and reserved it (although... More

I did this with my girlfriend, we did the sunset kayaking and we absolutely loved it. Make sure if you're going to go here to kayak, to do it when they have the pony swim. It's where they round up all the ponies.

Had a wonderful time kayaking on this tour. Equipment was a little worn, but all in working condition. Out guide Josh was wonderful - very friendly and knowledgeable of the area and wildlife.

I had never kayaked before, but our guide said that was no problem. It wasn't, I loved it! If you love being on the water and a little bit of a workout, you should definitely try this. We were within 30 yards of the ponies.

Nice, relaxing, informative tour. We have never kayak before so we signed up for a private tour. It was just the two of us and the guide. She instructed us what to do and how to act in a kayak and we went to explore the marshes. She was very personable, patient and she took her time to make sure... More
