Virginia's Eastern Shore offers a diversified variety of waterfowl hunting for the beginner or veteran waterfowl hunter. Come hunt and enjoy the beautiful marshes and bays around Chincoteague Island. Capt Matt Mason will be your personal guide for all the days of your hunt. He has over 40 years of waterfowl and boating experience around the salt marshes and back bays of Chincoteague Island.
Captain Matt has marsh blinds set up on ponds for puddle ducks, and open bay blinds for divers and Brant. Captain Matt's blinds are big and spacious with partial covering on the top to help keep you concealed from the ducks and the weather. We may also be hunting from floating blinds or even our 24 ft Carolina Skiff.
Your hunt will begin by meeting at 5:00 am to go over the details of the day ahead. We generally leave the Curtis Merritt Harbor around 5:30 am and head for your blind. Generally we will be moving 2 to 3 times per day depending on weather conditions, tide and type of waterfowl you have requested to hunt. All hunts end daily at promptly 2:00 pm.
Please let us know if you plan to bring your retriever.
