Description

Layout Boat Duck Hunting

Half or Full-Day Hunts | Lodging Available


Layout boat hunting is a very exciting & unique way to experience waterfowl “up close & personal”! We use custom-built, two-man layout boats made by Layout Addictions in Wisconsin (where hunting divers & sea ducks in the Great Lakes can only be done from a layout!). Our custom “Ghost-2 Man” layout boats are approximately 10’8” long by 75” wide, weight capacity of over 500 lbs, are super buoyant even in choppy waters, and have a super low profile coupled with a custom paint job that makes you “disappear” on the open water! Ducks will decoy right in your lap, completely unaware. We utilize a tender boat that stands by at a safe distance and communicates with the layout hunters via handheld VHS radio so when birds get knocked down the tender boat will fetch them up!


Whether you're looking for a singular species to cross off your list or you just want a great time in the blind with family and friends, look no further than the Sunshine State for your ultimate waterfowl experience.


What to Expect

We typically set out a spread of 60 to 150 decoys and up to 12 custom motion decoys to help lock in the birds!

We have trained duck dogs that will fetch up your birds

Our experienced & professional guides will help you every step of the way to ensure you have a safe & memorable hunting experience!


The base price is per person for a half-day hunt, a minimum of 2 hunters to book. Full-day hunts are available for an additional fee. Add on Non-hunting guests or lodging for an additional fee per person.
