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.

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.

Andrew went above and beyond to help us out.. We kayaked and paddle boarded Saturday afternoon and the experience was awesome. Rental equipment was clean and in good shape. The views of the lake were amazing!! If you spend a day at the lake, burn some calories and hit the water
