Assateague Explorer Cruise

The barrier island of Assateague stretches for over 37 miles and there are many places in our area where we can find wild ponies that live in family herds along the island. As you can see in these photos, this is your best way to see parts of the island where the wild ponies live in this unique ecosystem. The ponies enjoy feeding on the marsh grasses and other foods they forage on along the island each day.
