The calmer waters of Sinepuxent Bay are perfect for boats and you can hire canoes and kayaks locally if you want to take to the ocean and explore the island from the sea. Some of the more sheltered spots in Assateague State Park are easier to reach from the water so make the most of the peace and quiet if you find yourself on your own private beach.
One of the main attractions of Assateague State Park and the neighboring Chincoteague National Wildlife Refuge are the wild horses which have made the two islands their home. It is important to remember that while these creatures are beautiful to look at, they are not like domesticated horses.
If you want to enjoy some time on the water but would prefer to sit back and relax, you might prefer to take a pleasure cruise. Several companies run trips which take visitors around the island, showing off many of Assateague State Park's finest attractions in the process.
