Purple Martin Cruises on The Southern Patriot

A phenomenon you have to see to believe. This 2 ½ hour cruise takes you out to historic Bomb Island, where hundreds of thousands of birds (Purple Martins) circle and roost on the largest Purple Martin sanctuary in North America. During this cruise you will hear narration about the Purple Martins and about the historic significance of how this island was used for bombing practice by Jimmy Doolittle prior to his raid on Tokyo during WWII. Light refreshments will be served.
