Escape the crowded tourist areas and experience the more secluded waterways of Gulf Shores, Alabama on this unique “backstage” tour. We’ll take you down the waterways less traveled on our cozy 22 passenger pontoon with a captain and guide who will treat you like family, not a number on a huge tour boat. 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.
This is the “must do” tour for all avid lovers of nature and history when visiting Gulf Shores, Alabama.
