Captain Barry's Backbay Cruises

"An interactive experience that differs from all the others"

"The ultimate high energy adventure cruise with hands-on, feet- wet, mind- on experiences"

"A floating classroom, a research vessel. Where we used all of our senses sound, touch, taste, and smell to make our cruise informative and fun"

"Even the most timid of passengers will return from one of these cruises confident in their skills as a crabber, proud of the black marsh sand that covers their feet, boasting about their ability to distinguish different types of jellyfish, and amazed by the wonders the Bay holds"

"We took three generations on the sea life expedition. The captain had all of us mucking for clams in the middle of the bay squealing with delight as the minnows skittle around our feet, and cheering for dad as he found a clam"

"Adventure learning at its finest"

"You can't beat raw oysters, dancing crabs, and wet feet"

"The Indiana Jones of Chincoteague"

"Irreplaceable. Barry Frishman is the elder statesman of team penn, is a former oystermen and tugboat captain, who spends his summers in Virginia leading eco-tours so that during the winter months he can afford to perform relief work"
