During the wintertime, we depart daily at 10:30 and 1:00. Spring and Fall, we add a 3:30, and summer we add a 8:00 a.m. and a 6:00 p.m. tour.
We do not require advance reservations. We strongly advise that you do since there are many times when we sell-out a week or two weeks in advance. The earlier you book means you will have the greatest selection of tours and times available.
There is no minimum age for children, however, we are limited as to the number of seats that are “car seat compatible”. If your child is 4 years old or 40 lbs. or less, they must have a car seat. Since most families traveling to our site with their children in car seats, they simply transfer their carseat over to our vehicle. We do not provide car seats! Over 4 years old or 40 lbs, they may ride in the open air “Safari” section; since there are no shoulder restraints, boosters are NOT allowed (NC State law).
If YOU cancel: Our policy is pretty straightforward….. we simply ask that you cancel at least 72 hours in advance…. we don’t need a note from Mom or Dad or anyone for that matter. We simply want enough time to offer the seats to someone else. You will not be charged any fees, and you get a full refund. If WE cancel: Weather, earthquakes etc., there is no charge and you get a 100% refund or we will try and reschedule you as best we can, subject to availability.
I like to tell folks to dress for the beach and be comfortable. We do a little walking in the sand, so flip flops are fine, as are shorts, tees, or whatever suits you. We’ve even stopped on the hot days while those in bathing suits take a swim in the Ocean! Not advisable in January…..
Most days, it makes little difference. We see horses throughout the day, and it revolves around what other activities folks have planned, and how far away their next activity is. Hardcore photographers prefer the early and late tours. Again, we have shade tops on the vehicles, and their is a few seats that are air conditioned.
This can be arranged, but we generally have folks meet us at our location.
Well, this depends on the rain. If it’s a little sprinkle and no one is going to melt, then we will continue the tour. Downpours and/or thunderstorms are a no- go. We will cancel. (See cancellation policy above). We do have all-weather curtains on several of the vehicles. This makes it much more comfortable if its damp or it really takes the chill off for our winter time tours.
Yes!!!! Finally. Currituck County built a nice park with real bathrooms!! (We donated the 5 acres to build it on.)…..This spot is almost at the 1/2 point of the trip.
Yes. Our guides generally get around 15% or more.
That depends….. we have smaller ones that seat 6-10, and larger ones that seat 15.
Yes!!! Remember, you may NOT feed the horses. You may feed the guide.
Yes….. but- we strongly encourage you to use common sense here. Our excursions are laid-back eco-tours that focus primarily on the history, horses and ecology of the area… not a wild, off-road ride. It is off road though, and there are some bumps and unstable terrain. Not to mention, limited access to ambulances and medical services. (I’ve guided well over 20 years, and never delivered a baby.)
