Chincoteague sunset

The Chincoteague cruise to Assateague's National Park is amazing during sunset and what memories are made of. Assateague's wild ponies, dolphins, bald eagles and other wildlife offer chances to experience their epic grandeur on the sunset boat cruise. Dolphins are frequently seen during Summer and Fall. Sit back and relax with a close up view of the Assateague Lighthouse and its twin rotating lights that pass overhead at night. Astonishing scenery that just won't quit. A great perspective of what Virginia is really made of.

Enjoy unbelievable views on the boat cruise. You'll be amazed as you experience the coastal island charm and seafaring history of Assateague's Lighthouse that still helps passing ships and local waterman navigate the waters of Assateague. The Chincoteague to Assateague cruise during sunset is popular and many visitors do this as well as the daily Nature Cruise in order to see different herds of horses. Assateague Explorer is happy to bring the world to experience God's beautiful environment and magnificent wildlife here. Enjoy dramatic scenery during your Virginia vacation on the boat ride at sunset along the National Park.
