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.
