3. Water sports. If fishing isn’t your thing, plenty of other opportunities to get out on the water are found in both Gulf Shores and Orange Beach. Water sports fanatics will be able to stay active by making a splash with kayaking, jetskiing, parasailing, paddleboarding and (seasonally) flyboarding. Catch a wave of excitement when you try one or all of these thrilling activities.
