Sunrise on Assateague Island

WHY WE LOVED OUR TOUR

"We wanted to see the sunrise during our vacation and we were happy we did on Assateague! After enjoying our coffee on the beach, we were driven further off road and were lucky to see horses resting on the sand dunes. We then drove throughout the park and saw a number of other horse bands too, including other wildlife."

Along the short drive to Assateague we will talk about the rich history of the park, its formation, ecosystem, and horse population. Upon entering the park, we will do our best to spot wildlife along the way, including the famous horses. Sika deer and other wildlife, including a vast array of birds can be seen as we travel through the park.

After arriving at the off road / over sand section of the park, we will drive down the beach and set up beach supplies to enjoy the sunrise. We can explore two paths by car (if accessible) to see the bayside and potentially other horse bands. Upon departing from the park, we will do our best to spot horses as well.
