We come yearly and stay at Dauphin Island. A great place to come and visit. We've visited many places in and around the bay.

Large bay with even larger marshlands provides for a sportsman's paradise. Great inshore fishing especially for red-fish and speckled trout. Great sailing venue with active sailboat racing fleets on both shores. Clearer water nearer the mouth for swimming and waatersports.

Was a great boat tour of Mobile Bay. The Captains are very knowledgeable of the history very informative. We were able to see things you would not be able to see without taking this tour.

If you want to see the bay without all the walking this is a great trip. Tour guides were great, funny and family friendly. Lots of points of interest along the tour.

A local resident told us about Bayfront park. It's right on the bay. It has trails and a little beach for enjoying the water. Very relaxing.

Roads are very good but busy. There are several parks which are very nicely groomed. There is pier where people were fishing. Lots of nice art and gift shops along the way. You will need lots of time to enjoy the area.
