Randy Birch is a true "Teaguer" - he was born and raised on Chincoteague Island and for his whole life has made his living on and around the island. He is a waterman by trade, harvesting hard and softshell crabs, minnows and horseshoe crabs during the summer, and guiding waterfowl hunts in the winter. He knows the waters intimately and lends a unique authenticity to the tour experience.
Captain Randy's comfortably equipped 22-foot deck boat is Coast Guard approved to carry up to 6 passengers. Tours on and around the waters of Virginia's Chincoteague and Assateague Islands depart from a private dock on Chincoteague's east side.

"Captain Randy's personal experience brings a truly unique flare to an historic and informative tour through the breath-taking beauty of Assateague and Chinctoteague water ways. Upclose views of the ponies, duck blinds and wildlife, water and fowl, were peppered with the Captain's personal color commentary which made our tour the highlight of our week's vacation. It was fascinating to associate the peaceful scenic cruise with the island's history as seen uniquely through both Capt. Randy's childhood memories and his modern day understanding of the area. Since the tour was customized to my families interest, we had Capt. Randy's dedicated attention for our questions and interests. WOW! It was an honor to spend time with Capt. Randy. We gained a true appreciation for him and the his hometown island. You just don't find this kind of experience in today's commercialized vacation markets. We learned a lot and laughed a lot....Thank You Capt. Randy!"
