This is our final post of the Beach Fun series. We hope you come and visit Chincoteague this summer and put some of these suggestions to use!
Kayaks can be launched and beached at both the beach and Toms Cove areas, including Toms Cove Hook. If you are kayaking, keep an eye out for swimmers so you don’t whack them with a paddle! Note: you cannot kayak in lifeguarded sections of the beach, nor are kayaks allowed in refuge impoundments or borrow ditches.
If you need to rent a kayak, simply let us know when your make your reservation or upon arrival and we can connect you with a local vendor.
The National Park Service also conducts summer kayaking programs from the Toms Cove Visitor Center to explore the Assateague Island National Seashore. Please contact the Toms Cove Visitor Center for details at (757) 336-6577.
Personal Watercraft Rentals and Tours
You can rent jet skis to explore the waters around the island. Prices are in the range of $95 for one hour. You can also hire companies to take you on jet ski tours. They will lead you around Chincoteague Island with up close views of the Assateague Lighthouse, ponies, marsh wildlife, and more. Take a break on the Sandbar for a quick barrier island beachcombing session. These tours can be personalized to be as mild or wild as you would like!
