Dolphin Boating and Sailing Cruises
These are dolphin that swim in the waters of Perdido Bay behind the Bear Point Marina. There are various boats that offer sunset cruises to see the dolphin. Some, like the Corsair, are luxury cruises that also include a shrimp dinner with fresh shrimp that are caught right on the spot. We took these shrimp photos from the deck of the Corsair.
This is a list of local sailing trips & boating charters. Most focus on taking you out to watch the dolphins and some include shrimping and other special adventures. Many guests report that the boat rides and sailing cruises they took were a highlight of their Gulf Coast vacation.
