Purple Martin Boat Tours

Date: June 18 - Aug 24, 2018
Join Wingard’s Naturalist and USCG Captain Zach to experience a once-in-a-lifetime viewing of purple martins at one of North America’s largest purple martin roosts. During summer evenings, hundreds of thousands of purple martins travel to the 12 acre Doolittle Island in Lake Murray to nest. This little island (nicknamed Bomb Island from 1940s WWII bombing practice) attracts thousands of bird enthusiasts to witness this unparalleled event. Join us for an intimate, 6 passenger sunset cruise, where you can see thousands of purple martins up close and enjoy time on Lake Murray.

Tours cost $35 per adult and $25 for children 12 and under. Tours depart promptly from Jake’s Landing at 7 p.m. and return at 9 p.m. We encourage you to arrive at least 10 minutes early so that you will have plenty of time to board. Note that guests who arrive late will not receive a refund or opportunity to reschedule.
