This was our youngest Retriever's 1st boat trip and she put Jim to ease right away! Mary is extremely knowledgeable about the area, both historically as well as knowing where the dolphins, eagles and horses hang out. She really makes your trip so memorable and special! Very affordable and we look forward to seeing her again next year!

We had a lovely charter with Mary. She was knowledgable on the area and got us to the sandbar at an optimal hour for the tide. Additionally, she slowed the boat and went out of the way to show us the Dolphins who were feeding in the area. We will absolutely visit Mary and the sandbar again. thank you!!!

My daughter and I had a wonderful day with Mary on her boat, Proud Mary II. Mary took us to an area where the shell collecting was great and within minutes had collected all we wanted. The Dolphins were exceptional and we had numerous Dolphins around the boat What a sight that was!...Their beauty was stunning as they splashed around... More

Just got back from a charter on the PROUD MARY and what a fantastic experience. George and Mary are the best. George takes you out fishing and Mary takes you out to see the dolphins and ponies and other great experiences. Went fishing with George with 3 other friends. He furnished the rods and reels and bait for all kinds... More

This was our first fishing trip in Chincoteague. Captain George was a great tour guide and was really warm and inviting. On our trip, he took us all over the Cove. He told us stories of his fishing trips and different events that happened around the Island. There weren't many fish biting, so he took us to a few different... More

Captain Mary, Proud Mary Too, was a wonderful captain who went out of her way to make our sunset cruise special! Dolphins, brown pelicans, osprey nests, history of the island and the beloved ponies, and the most beautiful sunset ever! I only wish I had my granddaughter with me to enjoy the experience! I will definitely book another cruise next... More

Mary custom tailored the trip of my kids dreams! In fact my 12 year old said " this might have been the best day of my life!" That is no small compliment from a 12 year old boy! We started the day with finding ponies and seeing the lighthouse. We then traveled to find Dolphins. And we found a ton!... More
