We thoroughly enjoyed our tour of the Mobile-Tensaw Delta. The weather was beautiful and our captain, Michael was very knowledgeable and personable. We only caught a glimpse of an alligator, but they’re definitely there and I was glad there wasn’t an extreme focus on finding one thing like there is with the dolphin tours. We saw plenty of other types of vegetation and wildlife that Michael pointed out along with bits of history, medicinal and food use, and interesting facts about the eco-system related to the vegetation and wildlife.
The thick afternoon fog provided a far from silent boat tour for our family of 3 adults and 2 elementery age children. The tour started directly below the Convention Center and took us beside the USS Alabama. We saw and the personable captain and his assistant provided stories and facts of the various working machines in the port of Mobile. They talked about the Austal shipyard where the two types LCS were being built to ensure our shorelines future safety and moved on to why the battleship such as the Alabama is now obsolete. We viewed containers ships unloading and the last view was the area of shoreline necessary to support one leg of the new suspension bridge over the bay. This tour was so worth our time and a very good value for the money. The boat has a cover and seats with the ability to enclose the sides with plastic see through curtains. Would certainly recommend for all ages.
Chris did our boat tour, and he is definitely awesome!! He gave SO much interesting information, answered all of our questions, and really made sure that everyone got the most out of the experience. I learned so much, and the delta is beautiful! We saw all different types of birds and an alligator which was extremely interesting. He was able to teach us about everything that we saw, and definitely gave me a different outlook on the ecosystem. I learned also how to better care for our coastal community which is extremely important. The best experience I had while in Mobile, hands down!
The Kayak tour was fun and we learned a lot. Cassie was very sweet and funny which made the tour so enjoyable.
Captain Chris was excellent and our group (8 to 65+ year olds) had a great time and learn a lot about the delta. It was a great mix of kayaking, hiking, and learning. It is worth the time and money to get off the beaten path to see the delta this way.
We had a great tour with Mack on Memorial Day. He was full of great information and very friendly and kind. It was even his birthday!! Toward the end of the tour we viewed a dolphin and her baby- a highlight!!
For the second winter in a row, we spent 5 weeks on a Snowbird trip, culminating in Mobile, Alabama where we stayed with our dear friend Susan. We enjoyed our 2019 experience with WildNativeTours so much that we decided to repeat it.
Chris gave us thorough education in the unique features of the delta, its fauna and flora diversity, and its importance as an international port. He reminded us that we all live in a watershed, no matter how far from a body of water, and that oceans are finite.
Thank you, Chris. We look forward to an encore next year.
Really enjoyed all 6 of us. Information shared was very enlightening. Younger kids get a little antsy at slow pace. Never knew how beautiful the Delta was and learned things about gators never knew. Thank you and looking forward to our next cruise. Thank you! Sheryl
Anytime someone comes to visit we try to do a fun trip on the water & Wild Native Tours does not disappoint! Every tour I’ve been on has been so interesting – the guides are very knowledgeable & make it fun. We learned all about the LCS military ships Austal is building & how the harbor works with materials getting shipped & loaded. Just amazing! I’m looking forward to a Cypress tour next in that area of the delta.
There were 9 of us aged 8 to 74 years and all had great time. Mike was knowledgeable and engaging, answering questions and providing interesting facts about the delta and wildlife. Two of us live in Mobile and this was our second trip which was totally different from one in summer. Highly recommend taking a tour – we intend to come back for more
