Assateague Island

Assateague Island Professional Review and Guide

"There are two good launch sites. The first is located just before the Verrazano Bridge, where there is plenty of parking. There is a fee to use the boat ramp, but you can launch for free from the sandy beach in front of the parking lot. (You will still need to pay the park entrance fee, which is $4 for Maryland residents and $6 for non-residents.)

Explore the nooks, crannies, and coves of Assateague State Park to find wild ponies, sika deer, pelicans, and osprey. This is also a great area for bird-watching."

Wind could pose a challenge when crossing from South Point to Great Egging Island. Coastal storms can spring up suddenly any time of the year, but particularly during the summer. Check the forecast before you head out and keep an eye to the sky, especially on hot, humid afternoons.
