Finally, you’re at the beach. You’ve looked through Harris Properties’ great offerings and selected a gorgeous rental home in Gulf Shores. You’ve got a taste of the beachfront living that people across the world so covet. Now what?
Well, one terrific way to enjoy the water is with a kayak! Kayaking in Gulf Shores Alabama is a complete package for aquatic enjoyment. Rowing is a low-impact, high-fun exercise that’s sure to work up an appetite as you sail forward one mighty stroke at a time. —And yet, it’s also great relaxation! Once you’ve paddled as far as you please, you can lean back and luxuriate in your kayak and let the waves gently rock you.
The views will rock you too; there’s nothing like a panoramic shot of the shore or the sea taken from a hundred yards out! Pods of dolphins frequent the area in the summer, too. And for the greatest photo of all, there’s always the chance of capturing the moment someone else almost tips over!
