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.

Wonderful tour of the Cypress Swamp. We saw and photographed several Osprey nests. One nest had little chicks! We saw an alligator, too. A comfortable ride on a huge, covered pontoon. $30 was a very good price.

We had a wonderful adventure leaving Gilligan's and entering Lake Moltrie through the Pinopolis Lock and exploring Traceway canal down to Old Santee Canal Park. Our guide was informative as well as entertaining.
