“I just couldn’t believe this could be the #1 activity in the area. But since we were new to the area and knew nothing about Gulf Shores, I figured we couldn’t go wrong. What a welcome! These ladies are so nice and helpful that I almost thought I was in a Saturday Night Live skit but these girls are authentic and love their jobs!”
