Welcome To Fisheagle Wildlife Tours!

The Wildlife Swamp Tour is our original and most requested tour. It lasts approximately 2 hours round trip from Santee State Park and 3.25 hours round trip from Wyndham Resort. You can anticipate seeing pristine wildlife including several species of wetland wading birds including egrets and herons, as well as anhingas, ducks, and neo-tropical migrating songbirds. Along the way we’ll journey through “Osprey Village” where we view over 20 osprey nests in the middle of the swamp.  Occasional alligators and lots of turtles can also be seen. The voyage meanders through a Bald Cypress and Water Tupelo Forest that is absolutely beautiful. We’ve been conducting this tour for over 23 years and repeat customers come back year after year!Best Eco Tour SC

The Wildlife Refuge Trip is a nice two hour trip that can be extended to three.  We explore the waters surrounding the Santee National Wildlife Refuge “Plantation Islands” and view the famous and historic Santee Indian Ceremonial and Burial Mound. Included is Revolutionary War ruins and stories of the Swamp Fox himself, General Francis Marion.  On this trip we’ll also explore Scotts Lake and the Jacks Creek area where wildlife abounds in a beautiful bald cypress flooded forest. This is also a great trip for birders.

Historic Locks Trip – The Santee-Cooper Locks in Pinopolis, SC are an engineering marvel. They were constructed during the building of the Santee-Cooper Project which began in 1939 and were completed in November of 1941, one month before the attack on Pearl Harbor.    The Locks were built to handle elevation changes on a river for transportation of vessels. Lake Moultrie water level at full stage is 75.5′ above sea level, but is only about 30 miles upstream from the ocean. Originally they had planned to build a number of locks encompassing 7 1/2 separate locks each with a 10′ drop to arrive at sea level. Instead, they decided to do it all at one time with this incredible engineering masterpiece, which was at that time, the world’s tallest single-lift lock.

New! Sunset Cruise at Wyndham Resort Bring your friends and family and join us on Saturday’s beginning in June as we embark from  Wyndham Vacation Resort for a Casual Sunset Cruise on board the Osprey. Enjoy an evening on beautiful Lake Marion.  We will take in the scenery, play some tunes and provide 90 minutes of cruising on the Lake while you hang out with your friends and family.
