Our cruise takes us on South Carolina’s third largest lake to one of its most historically significant rivers – with an eight-story drop in between!
Only offered during the month of October, our guided Santee-Cooper Pinopolis Lock tour begins in Moncks Corner aboard a 30-passenger pontoon boat. We’ll travel along the Cooper River past former rice plantations and the opportunity to see a wide- variety of wildlife including bald eagles, alligators, turtles and other wading birds.
The lock features massive concrete walls with huge steel gates at each end. It takes about 20 minutes to fill the chamber, raising our boat 75 feet to the level of Lake Moultrie. Once at the top, you will have a dramatic view of the canal way below us.
When the gates open, you are in Lake Moultrie and our master naturalist guide will tell you about the history of the lake and point out wildlife. On our return trip through the lock, the water will be drained and our boat will slowly drop back to sea level which takes about 10 minutes.
This tour is something you don’t want to miss and is a one-of-a-kind experience!
