We took our boat and traveled out on Mobile Bay. We saw lots of sights and the homes on the water are so gorgeous. We rented a boat slip at the Grand Hotel Marina and each day we would go for a ride in the bay.

Be sure to drive around the mobile bay area to feel the unique feel of Alabama nature. It's beautiful even in winter

It not only beautiful to see, we had a great lunch at a bayside park, but it is incredibly to take one of the tours and go out on the water

Mobile bay was once one if the most productive and beautiful bays in America. She actually had 10-15 foot visibility because the monster oyster reefs filtered the silty brown water so efficiently. Those days are long gone but it is still a great bay for fishing sailing and sight seeing . The water is brown as the silt and flow... More

Best way to see Dauphin Island is by canoe I do believe. We spent a week here and set out just about everyday for a trek in the canoe. Beautiful and smooth water, landscapes that are breathtaking, and tons of aquatic life to see. My husband grumbled at first about bring our canoe from North Carolina but after one outing... More

Fair Hope is a wonderful town in the eastern side of Mobile Bay. It regularly lands on top 10 retirement destinations and you'll see why. There are also beaches and a fabulous Marriott at Point Clear with beautiful grounds you can hang out on (literally) on hammocks if you tell the fella at the front you are planning to meet... More

It might be from the excessive rains of recent days, but the rivers were carrying a lot of soil in them. Thus the bay looked like a muddy mess. There's no comparison to Pensacola or east of there. I feel for the people that live down there. Maybe it get's better, but I wouldn't plan a fishing or vacation trip... More

One South Alabama's finest outdoor destinations. Inshore fishing, great bass fishing further north in the delta, duck hunting is great. Get a guide if your not familiar with the area.

It took us almost an hour to find this location and still wondering if this is the place I read and told about. I was looking at the water but did not see the torqouise color as one of the reviewer had mentioned. I see however a murky water with debris and broken tree branches floating on the water. I... More
