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

I have a house on the Western shore, It is a great place for fish, shrimp, and crabs. great for sailing, and for boating in small skiffs. In the summer time it is a great place for Kayaking. Wish it were less murky.

I moved to the Mobile area 12 years ago. Oblivious to what Mobile Bay really was. I'm an outdoorsman and have been my whole life. I saw the muddy waters and didn't see the magnificent eco- system that exists here. This huge Area of Watershed: 44,582 square miles creates a tremendous estuary system supporting numerous species. 11 rivers lend water... More

We decided to go down to Mardi Gras last weekend and we saw so many beautiful sites. It's amazing how beautiful the sites are around the bay. I encourage you to stop and take in these amazing sites if you are down around Mobile.

The upper part of the bay in the delta offers an abundance of wild life which can be seen in a few different ways. Great duck hunting and fishing while in season. Some people don't have a clue what they are looking at and what a great asset it bay is.

One of the loveliest sites is Mobile Bay at sun set or sun rise. Both can be equally breathe taking. But the benefit to the area far out weights the visions it provides. It provides food to eat, a means of moving goods throughout the US and the world, and a nesting ground for birds and fish. We are so... More

dirty beaches, dirty water, industrial and poor. Why did we ever waste our time in this backward hole in the brown sand?

We viewed various parts of the bay from bridges and causeways. Was rainy and cloudy though and couldn't see very far. It was one of the larger bays I have ever viewed but other than that I saw nothing special about it. Saw some form the ferry from Dauphin Island to Ft. Morgan as well. Might be interesting to kayak... More
