  • My daughter and I had a fantastic experience on this tour! Our captain was charming, skilled and knowledgeable. We saw wild ponies up close, bald eagles, loons and other wildlife. A magical day...  more »
  • We had a wonderful trip with Captain Jake. Our tour was scheduled right after a nor’easter came thru town and the ponies all ventured to higher ground. It made it a little more difficult than normal.....  more »
  • Could not have asked for more! Captain Bill was amazing! Very informative and will to go the extra mile! The ponies put up an quite the fight to stay free!
  • Visited the island late July 2018 and took this tour. Having read the Marguerite Henry books as a child, I was excited to finally get to see the ponies! I could not attend the swim over, but had made a reservation for a boat tour of the swim back on Friday. Communication with me was good regarding departure time. However, when the two boats in our party arrived at the viewing site, they had no plan for where we were to anchor. Other tour lines were already there and anchored. Also, other tour lines had snacks and beverages - we were offered beverages only (I had already brought my own). On the return trip, they swung into a little inlet so we could see the ponies up close - which was nice. We also stopped to observe some dolphins on the return trip to the marina. If I were to do this again, I would check out some other tours. A "regular" boat tour is priced at $45; the pony swim back tour was $125. I didn't mind the inflated price so much, but will be more careful next time where my money is spent. UPDATE: Capt. Henry has contacted me NUMEROUS times demanding that I take down these comments, saying that they hurt his business.
