5 Tips on Preparing for Your Tour:
1) Arrive 30 minutes early! This policy allows you the time to check in, sign waivers, and prepare for your 2-hour, non-stop ride. We operate on a tight and timely schedule and cannot hold tours!
2) Check your email! The confirmation emails you receive after booking are very important. You can double-check and reference your booking information so as to avoid any booking mistakes. Didn't receive your email? Call us to have it resent! (252)489-2020
3) Find us! Locate our office on a map before you start your drive. Although the island is small, some people still get lost or rely on a faulty GPS! We cannot delay our tours, so arriving in the right place, at the right time, is important!
4) Inform us! Do you get car sick, have mobility issues, or maybe don't have the best hearing? Make a note in your booking of anything that may be helpful for us to know so we can provide you with the best adventure possible!

Yes, we do require reservations and pre-payment to book a tour. As soon as you decide you want to take a tour, book online or give us a call; we book up fast!
What is your cancellation policy?
What if it rains the day of my tour?
We are a rain or shine company! If the horses don't mind the rain, 'neighther' do we! Since the Outer Banks has varied weather and spans a large area, a weather forecast that predicts rain in the Outer Banks does not necessarily mean it will rain in Corolla. If you are concerned about the weather for your tour please call us at (252)489-2020. We will not send out tours during severe thunderstorms, strong winds, and / or heavy rain, as this could endanger you and our drivers. These tours will be postponed, rescheduled, or refunded based off of availability and preference.
Are car seats allowed?
Car seats are legally required in order for children to take a tour if they are under 8 years old or 80 pounds. There are no age restrictions to take a tour, however children cannot sit in a parent's lap, you must bring their car seat. All of our vehicles are equipped with the latch system in order to provide a safe and stable tour for the young ones! (Plus, being raised up makes horse viewings easier for smaller children).
What is the best time of day to see the horses?
There is no best time! Although searching for wild animals is an unpredictable feat, our guides are extensively trained on tracking the wild mustangs. It's recommended that you choose the date and time of the day for your tour based on your party's preference. Good news is, since it is illegal to feed the wild horses, their search for food keeps them on the move from sun up to sun down.
When booking online, what is the difference between Alpha, Bravo, Charlie, Delta and Echo?
All of our tours and vehicles are the same, these are just the names of our Hummers! You could be in any of the Hummers for your tour, the names are used by the office to organize bookings.
Do you guarantee us to see horses?
We do not guarantee that you will see horses, as they are wild animals and are not tagged. However, our tour guides are well trained and know where to look for the horses depending on the time of day and weather conditions. Feel free to give us a call and ask about recent horse activity.
How does my money help the horses?
Thanks to you, our company is able to participate in many programs that aid and protect the horses and the land they call home. Each ticket you purchase allows us to make regular and yearly donations to the non-profit responsible for herd management, Corolla Wild Horse Fund. We also are able to make emergency donations in order to aid hurt or sick horses who need to be removed for veterinary treatment. In addition to our micro level impact, through company profit we purchase sections of land to shield the sanctuary from development and minimize human impact. Donations are also made to the National Forrest's tree planting program in order to offset our vehicles carbon footprint. All of this and more is done from you taking a tour with us, we can't thank you enough!
Who receives military discounts?
Active military (currently enlisted) are offered a $10 off discount! Spouses and family who are not enlisted pay normal ticket price. Thank you to all who have, do, and will serve our country, we greatly appreciate your service!
What if I am pregnant?
We do not suggest anyone who is pregnant to take our tour. Although we try to provide the smoothest ride possible, this is an off-road excursion with varying driving conditions. We ask for you to consult your doctor and do require you to sign an additional waiver if you decide to participate in our tour.
Can you recommend a good vacation rental company?
Yes for the best in Outer Banks Vacation Rentals we recommend Twiddy & Company - www.twiddy.com
What are some good restaurants and things to do nearby?
Depends on what you are looking for! We suggest Lighthouse Bagels and Deli, Corolla Cantina, and Mama Easley's for places in Corolla. If you are driving back south, Cravings and Roadside in Duck are top notch food joints! Activities wise, the Corolla Beach lighthouse is right up the road neighboring a free wildlife museum. Also, Corolla Adventure Park is a ropes/obstacle course up the road that is a hit among kids and their families! Feel free to give us a call for any local suggestions.
