Creating Your Custom Cruise

~ Sunset Cruises

Captain Meriwether Payne, a Certified Virginia Ecotour Guide, will create your custom cruise departing from the quaint village of Wachapreague on the Seaside of Virginia's Eastern Shore.

Scenic creeks meander through emerald marshes out to the barrier islands which are part of the Virginia Coast Reserve; a United Nations Biosphere Reserve created by The Nature Conservancy in the early 1970s, and the longest expanse of coastal wilderness remaining on the eastern seaboard of the United States.

These islands are a birders paradise, sheltering more than 250 species of shorebirds, waders, raptors, songbirds, ducks, and geese, which find food in the adjacent bays and salt marshes.  Birding is a year round activity with spring and fall migrating shorebirds, summer nesters and winter waterfowl.  This intricate ecosystem supports hundreds of other species as well and you will also have opportunities to see animals from the all important, yet tiny, fiddler crab, to Diamondback Terrapins, sea turtles, dolphins and the occasional seal.

Beach stops on the islands are easily arranged for picnics, shelling, swimming and we can put the seine net to use and see what creatures are in the water or dig for clams!

Island taxis are available if you simply want to spend the day on the beach; or take a sunset cruise before dinner at one of our fine local restaurants.

Capt. Meriwether is USCG Licensed and insured.   All trips are on a comfortable, new 23' Carolina Skiff carrying up to 6 passengers on trips from 2 to 8 hours and departing from the Wachapreague Town Marina.  Please contact for prices on your custom trip!
