Camping is not allowed on these pristine islands due to bird nesting, so we will arrange land support to take you to a lodge or B&B each evening. We can customize a trip for all abilities, from a few days to the full length of the 70-mile peninsula from Chincoteague to Kiptopeke, the longest undeveloped shoreline on the East Coast.
