Why Assateague Island Tours
Assateague Island Tours was created to share Assateague's beauty and provide a different experience for those visiting the barrier island. Our goal is to help you turn off your mind and truly enjoy your day while leaving the planning to us.
Throughout our years of traveling to Assateague Island and onto the OSV, we've seen countless people become refreshed and reenergized after visiting the island and experiencing all that it has to offer. It opens up a new perspective for those that visit, and many are pleasantly surprised that a place like Assateague Island exists in Maryland. Being less than a three hour drive from three of the largest cities, Washington DC, Baltimore, and Philadelphia, and open year-round, the island offers an escape for those looking for a unique experience. Driving off road over sand is a special adventure many don't ever get to experience. Sharing a true Assateague experience immersed in nature and away from the crowds is our goal and what has driven us to create this experience.
We are the first and only commercially authorized tour operator to provide guided tours into Assateague Island National Seashore and onto the OSV*. We are customer-first with the goal to provide sustainable and environmentally friendly tours to Assateague Island that include surfing, relaxing, bird watching, horse viewing, and much more. Whether you are here for the summer or looking to escape for the day, we are perfect for those looking for something different. Your experience is what matters to us most!
