Nature COMBO TOUR

Get the most out of your vacation

See more areas and increase your chance of seeing wild ponies and other wildlife by going on both the cruise and the kayak tour or going twice on the boat or kayak tour (the same day or separate days). Every time we go out is different. Herds of wild horses, dolphins & other wildlife move around, and the tidal change in this area can create a different setting for wildlife viewing throughout the day. The combo tour is the best way to see the most wildlife and scenery. A complete vacation experience, the wild pony boat tour and kayak tour depart from two locations. The boat tour at the southern part of the island and the kayak tour a bit closer to the lighthouse. The boat tour shows you more southern areas and the kayak tour goes into amazing interior parts of the Wildlife Refuge for other wild horses etc. The large tidal variance creates changes in these gorgeous areas throughout the day. The coastal environment varies in terms of wildlife and scenery even from just a few hours due to the tides and wildlife moving about. The Wild Pony Combo Tour is your opportunity to experience more diverse areas and wildlife patterns at this environment.

Combo tour scenarios: 
You can do the nature cruise and kayak tour or go twice on the boat or kayak (either on the same day or separate days). If you can’t find the combination you like on our booking system, or if you’d like to book two tours on separate days online, just add one tour
 to the cart first (instead of booking a combo tour) and you will see a window with suggested items. Choose a second tour from there, and make sure to put the promo code 10OFF at the checkout to receive a 10% discount on the second tour. Call 757-336-5956 if you need assistance.

What is the best time of day to see wild ponies and wildlife?

Anytime of day is great. Wild horses graze and move around anytime of the day. Shorebirds, eagles and dolphins are also seen at any time of the day. April through October is awesome.

GET TO SEE DOLPHINS AND PONIES

You will enjoy the beautiful scenery as we depart from Chincoteague Island, Virginia to explore the waterways along Assateague Island National Seashore. We cruise right through the best areas for dolphins on the way over to Assateague Island and back.  

Join us to discover one of America’s best dolphin watching destinations! This is the best part of Assateague, near the inlet where dolphins frequent the most, known as the Chincoteague Inlet & southern part of Assateague.

We usually encounter dolphins several times a day as they socialize and hunt for their food. Any time of the day is good to see dolphins, just like the wild ponies.
