This is a beautiful area with the added perk of great seafood. I could feel my blood pressure dropping just looking at the gulls swooping down over the blue water. What more can you ask for? The view from any of the many restaurants or pullovers is spectacular. It's a great place for boating and it looked like there were... More

One of the prettiest bodies of water anywhere, rich in wildlife and in history. A haven for many fish, birds and other creatures. Well worth visiting.You need to visit the Fairhope and Mobile areas, much to do, much to see. Dauphin Island too.

We took the ferry from the Mississippi side to the Florida side of the bay. Easy on and easy off. Great view of the bay on the crossing.

Being at this bay only requires your absolute attention because it is honestly at some times of the day a breathtaking sight full of wildlife to catch your eyes. Do not leave until the sun is set because standing on Daulphin Island while viewing God's miraculous work of the sun set, is one of Mobile's finest treasures and you are... More

Having grown up on the Gulf Coast and Mobile Bay, I'm a bit jaded in reviewing it. For most folks in this area, this is our place of peace. Our Bay holds a special place in our hearts and we try to protect it in many ways. If you are an angler, a kayaker, photographer or just an outdoor junkie,... More

There is too much trash on the side of Bay Way and in the water. It is very cool when you see alligators. I also love to drive across bay when sun is setting. The water is not deep. The places to eat and 5 Rivers best part of Bay for me.

I just to drive around. If like the water and just seeing what you can see just take a drive. You don't have to spend $$ to have fun. Alabama offers a lot from just driving around the bay.

We stayed in Fairhope for 3 days and drove around the bay on two of the days. It's very large with lots to see and do. We loved the ferry ride from one end of the mouth to the next , it was very fun. Great watching all the boats and people. Waters a little dirty , don't think I'd... More
