1 EASTWARD BOUND / CHINCOTEAGUE ISLAND: We begin our journey by traveling east through the Chesapeake Bay Bridge Tunnel and onto Wallups Island. We will stop at the Wallups Flight Facility Visitors Center where NASA has operations. The Visitors Center features exhibits about aeronautics, orbital and sub-orbital rockets, scientific balloons, current missions, and the history of Wallups Flight Facility. We will make our way to Chincoteague Island for the next two nights. A seafood dinner will be provided to you tonight.
2 CHINCOTEAGUE ISLAND / ASSATEAGUE ISLAND: Today is sure to be full of excitement as we take take a Boat Tour to view Wild ponies that have inhabited Assateague Island for hundreds of years. Some have suggested that the wild ponies of Assateague trace their origin to horses released to forage on the Island by early settlers. However, the evidence strongly suggests that they are the descendants of the survivors of a Spanish galleon which wrecked off the coast of Assateague.
After our Boat Tour of Assateague Island we will spend some time at the Chincoteague Island Museum to learn all about the rich history of this beautiful island. This evening will be yours to enjoy.
