Hands On, Feet Wet – ALL YOUR SENSES Fun

Captain Barry's Back Bay Cruises

Captain Barry's Back Back Bay Cruises is an INTERACTIVE skill building experience.  We are a FLOATING CLASSROOM and RESEARCH VESSEL.

  • Dig in the mud for sea creatures at a sandbar
  • Pull Crab Pots and identify and see today's catch
  • Hold a Crab without getting pinched!
  • Navigate to Shell Island
  • Hunt for jellyfish
  • Haul in the trawler net and get a taste of Chincoteague's famous Salt Oysters
  • Identify the many birds
  • Captain Barry's Eco-Tour is not a pony watching tour

There is NEVER any pressure and always LOTS of FUN.  You can relax, sit back on the boat, be the official photographer or you can get into it!  With Captain Barry's Back Bay Cruises you will experience the life of a true Chincoteague Waterman.

Tours run for two hours. Reservations are required.
Adults: $60.00. Kids under 12: $55.00
Cash or personal checks are accepted. No credit cards.
6 Passengers Max Per Cruise (Bathroom on Board)

You pay for what you booked. Meaning, if you have made reservations for five people and you show up with four people, you pay for five seats.

** Every soul counts as a person (even infants).  Yes, we do charge for infants and infants do count towards the boat head count (United States Coast Guard Regulations).  For example, a party of 6 with an infant is actually a party of 7 and cannot legally charter our 6 passenger boat. **
