If you are looking for the perfect way to end your trip here in lovely Gulf Shores, take your group on a sunset cruise. Or, better yet, take them on a sunset dolphin cruise in Orange Beach. Enjoy cruising with dolphins, then sit back and watch the sun set over the Gulf. What could be better?
This two-hour sunset dolphin tour offered by Gulf Island Charter is for one to six travelers. They only offer private cruises, so only your group will be on this dolphin sightseeing tour. It’s perfect for family celebrations or for couples looking for a romantic (and fun) experience. Gulf Island Charters will schedule this private tour to meet your group’s needs.
Plot Your Course
The cruise leaves the marina, easing out into the Gulf to begin the search for dolphins. Captain Don boasts a 98% success rate on dolphin sighting! And dolphins aren’t the only thing to watch for – sea turtles, rays, maybe a shark or alligator if you’re lucky, and of course eagles, hawks, egrets, pelicans, and sea gulls.
You’ll cruise along the Intracoastal Waterway towards the harbor islands and back. Enjoy watching the local bottlenose dolphins frolic in the Gulf waters chasing schools of fish, shrimp boats or each other. And the sunsets of the Gulf can’t be beat; watch the sun ease down over the horizon, and its warm orange glow slowly fade from the sky as the stars come out.
