Too Much to Do
Now that the whole family’s here at the beach, what are you going to do? There’s so much more to do at the beach besides trolling for shells and examining all that fun stuff that washes up with the tide, although beachcombing is always enjoyable!
Grab the entire family or make a few new friends and get a little friendly competition going – start a beach volleyball game, build amazing sandcastles, or a fierce tug-of-war. Or just laze in the sun and work on your tan while the kids go swimming in the surf, watching the dolphins that stay just out of reach.
Speaking of watching dolphins, take a dolphin sightseeing cruise and get a little closer to the local bottlenose dolphins as they frolic alongside the boat. Book a half-day cruise or spend the entire day on the water, cruising past amazing beach homes and historic light houses while marine life swims past the boat. Or book a sunset dinner cruise – watch the dolphins play as the sun slowly sets and turns the water into flame.
Take the kids fishing; there are charters that specialize in trips for families with kids. Deckhands will be there to assist the little anglers with baiting the hook, landing their fish and safely removing the fish. Plus, they’ll be there to document all the action! Don’t forget, many local restaurants will cook your catch of the day for you. It’s great – you catch them, they prep and cook them, and you enjoy the results.
And there are all kinds of charters too. Start with basic dolphin watching tours where you’ll watch for dolphins, sea turtles and sharks while fishing the day away. Or try an eco-charter and the entire family can learn more about our coastal environment and its inhabitants while keeping an eye out for dolphins and more.
If you or anyone in your group is a serious angler, they’ll want to get in on the ultimate Gulf fishing experience – deep sea fishing. The Gulf area is known for its amazing American Red Snapper fishing, and in the summer and fall you can pit your talents against sea warriors like wahoo, Spanish mackerel, sailfish and tuna. Not ready for a serious deep-water excursion? You can still get an amazing fishing experience in the local back water and along the coast where Bull Redfish, Black Drum and Speckled Trout can put up quite a fight. Try your hand catching these bad boys on a fly rod!
Rent some kayaks and quietly cruise the tranquil rivers and back water. On your own, or with a tour guide, it’s a great way to experience the serenity of river life and to see marine life up close.
Rent one of our beachfront Orange Beach house rentals or a high-rise condo so you and the kids can watch the dolphins from your private deck or covered porch. You decide how close to the bright blue water and white sand you want to be.
