Either way, you will come away with an appreciation, understanding, and newfound knowledge of dolphins as you learn about their life history, ecology, feeding behaviors, and communal nature.  Numerous bird species and natural beauty are also to be found all while enjoying one of the prettiest classrooms on earth, kayaking among the beautiful sights and sounds of our local waterways.

Escape the crowded tourist areas and experience the more secluded waterways of Gulf Shores on this unique "backstage" tour.

Explore the Bon Secour River, Bon Secour Bay, and the Intracoastal Waterway watching for and learning about a variety of wildlife including dolphins, bald eagles, osprey, herons, and pelicans. We’ll cruise past commercial fisheries and teach you about modern-day fishing methods as the fishermen unload their catch. You’ll discover the highs and lows of the fisheries and learn about the history, ecology, and characters of Coastal Alabama.

Offered as both a sunset and daytime tour, we will introduce you to the Gulf Shores you have never known but will want to learn more about. If you do nothing else this vacation, take this trip!

This is the "must do" tour for all avid lovers of nature and history when visiting Gulf Shores.  All tour commentary is provided by experienced nature guides. Perfect for children of all ages. We know kids and welcome yours aboard.
