How I Had A Bird's Eye View of Orange Beach

Earlier this year I had an opportunity to travel to Orange Beach, Alabama and participate in some exciting activities.

Gulf Shores and Orange Beach has everything to offer including soft-white sand and clear-blue waters, beautiful beachfront places to stay, excellent cuisine, relaxation, fun, adventure and more. With so many incredible things to see and do, it's easy to see why more and more people are discovering this area. I want to share with you how I had a bird's eye view of Orange Beach, a vacation treasure.

Zipline Girls

1.) Hummingbird Zipline Course Hummingbird Zipline Course is located at The Wharf in Orange Beach. This was a one-of-a-kind zip lining adventure, especially since the 2 1/2 hour course is the highest and longest in Alabama. The instructors at Hummingbird are not only fun, kind and informative, but before you begin they teach you the proper way to zipline.

Throughout the eight ziplines, some of which took me as high as 115 feet off the ground and over a span of 6,000 feet, I had an incredible bird's eye view of Orange Beach and the Alabama Gulf Coast. We experienced speeds of up to 40 miles per hour, and I felt like I could touch the sky as I flew through the air over trees, wetland areas and more.

Make this unforgettable experience a part of your trip so you can get a unique view of Orange Beach, too.

2.) Sky Surfer Parasailing Parasailing is something I had never done before, up until my trip to Orange Beach. The Sky Surfer deckhands made me feel completely safe and the experience truly memorable, thanks to their top notch customer service.

During our boat ride we were able to see pods of beautiful dolphins. Once my friend and I were safely secured in our harnesses and gently lifted up hundreds of feet in the sky, we could see all of Orange Beach and so much more. The view was breathtaking. My favorite part of sky surfing was when the Captain brought us down really low and dipped our feet in the water, then sent us back up surfing in the sky.

I am so happy I was able to experience parasailing on my Orange Beach adventure and highly recommend you give it a try, too!

BeachFlight Aviation

3.) BeachFlight Aviation Wouldn't it be exciting to explore Gulf Shores from a new angle, like flying up in the clear-blue skies?

BeachFlight Aviation pairs you with a FAA-certified instructor for a one-on-one flight experience. During your flight you might even get to see stingrays, dolphins and more along the coastline. Your instructor even captures your experience through a camera mounted on the wing of the plane.

4.) Orange Beach Helicopter Tours Similar to BeachFlight Aviation, Orange Beach Helicopter Tours provides a bird's eye view of the stunning Alabama Gulf Coast. Fly high on a beach tour, sunset tour, sea life tour and more. Not only will you get to see the sugar-white sands and aqua waters, but it's an unforgettable experience each time you fly.

Now you know how I had a bird's eye view of Orange Beach, which adventurous activity would you choose first?
