Water Fun!

Digging your toes in the sand only skims the surface of the excitement that is the Alabama Gulf Coast. Dive right in to the gulf and explore the many unique diving sites, including “The Whiskey Wreck,” the “LuLu” and more than a dozen other dive sites in the area. Take a chartered boat or rent a boat for the day, and enjoy the unlimited activities that come along with activities such as deep sea fishing, sailing and more! We can’t mention water activities without mentioning fishing – after all, we are the fishing mecca of the South! Where else can you catch your dinner and eat it that same night?  Still not convinced that the gulf is your destination for your next vacation? Check out the water parks! The lazy rivers, mega slides, splash pads and bumper boats will have you coming back year after year!
