“Going out on the boat,” is a phrase spoken often by locals and visitors. The back bays and rivers are just as popular as the Gulf of Mexico. Boating on Alabama’s beaches is a fun way to island hop and visit different waterfront restaurants.
Boating is a popular pastime on the Gulf Coast, and it’s also great transportation.
