Fisheagle Tours offers Wildlife Eco-Tours for all ages. Our 30 passenger boat "The Osprey", goes out for two hour tours into Stump Hole Swamp on Lake Marion. In this beautiful flooded forest you'll discover the interesting history of the area while wildlife abounds. See Osprey, Alligators, Wetland wading birds and waterfowl along the way. This tour is wheelchair accessible with advance notice.

We also offer Kayak or Canoe Tours at our Paddle Sante location. These two or three hour tours take you up Poplar creek Wood Duck Trail with a guide where we tell you all about the wildlife here on Lake Marion. We paddle under beautiful Cypress trees, through lily pads and see an array of birds and turtles.

If you are more interested in independent travel we do offer Kayak, Canoe, and Stand Up Paddleboard rentals as well as fishing kayaks.We go over the area with you and send you into the lake with a map and all the equipment you need. No matter how you like to travel, Fisheagle has a fun and informative tour for you.

Captain Rick was great; very knowledgable and informative. Mr. Jimmy was a wonderful speaker full of information about Santee park and attractions in the area. Would recommend taking two hours to do this tour.

My husband and I had a wonderful time on this tour. The breadth of knowledge both historical and environmental that was relayed during the tour was amazing. We thoroughly enjoyed the ride and all the wildlife we were able to see. And as an added bonus, at the end of the tour, Captain Rick also told us of several great... More

The pontoon boat trip was very smooth and Captain Rick and Jimmie very knowledgeable. We were surprised that a lake tour took us to a beautiful cypress swamp at the end of the lake. We learned the history of the lake and what a great fishing destination this is. We saw many osprey on their nests and with fish in... More

Thank you for your kind response. We love what we do! On cool days the alligators do tend to be "invisible" and wait for the sun to come out. Glad you were able to see the eagle nest and ospreys! Come enjoy our historical locks tour in Moncks Corner! Thank you for coming on our tour. Kathie Livingston More

Capt. Rick took us on a fabulous tour of Lake Marion's cypress swamp. His narration of the history of the are and lake was interesting and his interaction with the passengers was friendly and fun. The swamp is phenomenal. A must see here in Santee.

Great way to see the lake and Cyprus Trees around the lake at Santee State Park. It was Fall so not as many birds around but the scenery was great and if you're a photographer you'll love all the shots you can get. Recommend it.

The boat is a great boat for groups even senior adults - easy on and easy off. This trip we went through the Locks getting on the boat at Moncks' Corner. The guides are great and there is a microphone on board that helps with hearing the guides. It is a delightful trip

The trip itself was very good and the captain did everything he could to make this enjoyable. For people out to sit and view the area, the captain is very knowledgeable. For photographers they went the extra mile to help get the perfect picture. Highly recommended.
