Wednesday July 26, 2017, will mark the 92nd year of Chincoteague’s annual Pony Swim. Saltwater Cowboys will swim the ponies from Assateague Island to Chincoteague Island at “slack tide”, a period of about 30 minutes when there is no current. The time of slack tide varies each year. However, the swim generally takes place some time between 7am and 1pm. The specific time will be announced at the carnival grounds the week of the swim. The Chincoteague Ponies will swim across the Assateague Channel, just south of Memorial Park (7427 Memorial Park Dr, Chincoteague Island, VA 23336) on the east side of Chincoteague Island. There is no charge to see the ponies swim.
