7 Ways to Treat Dad to the Best Father's Day Ever
Want to give dad a Father’s Day to remember?
It’s pretty easy actually.
Just think about all there is for dad (and family) to do on Alabama’s white-sand beaches. We’ve got seven ideas to help you start planning.
From the thrill of going after sailfish to cruising the back bays for the night’s dinner, the possibilities are endless for those with serious angler skills or just a sometimes fisherman. Grab a spot on a deep-sea fishing charter or drop a line from a pole on the Gulf State Park Pier. Either way, it’ll be fun to take dad fishing on his own personal holiday. It’s also something everyone in the family may enjoy.
Give dad a bird’s eye view of the spectacular Alabama Gulf Coast with a flight in a gyroplane. He’ll fly the aircraft with the help of an FAA-Certified flight instructor from BeachFlight Aviation and experience one of the most unique gift of his lifetime. He’ll be outfitted with a headset and a helmet with windscreen before flying a two-mile loop around the beach. Choose from 20-, 40- or 60-minute flights and dazzle dad with views of dolphins and other wildlife.
The Hummingbird Zipline at The Wharf
Adventure gets no better than ziplining while at the beach. Experience Alabama’s longest zipline course with more than 6,000 feet of heart-pounding fun. Dad will get a two-hour guided tour over coastal wetlands via the Hummingbird Zipline.
Golf in Coastal Alabama
Gulf Shores and Orange Beach are brimming with great golf courses that are not only located in beautiful settings but are also award winning. Kiva Dunes Golf Course was recently ranked the #1 Public Golf Course in Alabama by Golf Advisor and with good reason. Enjoy the stunning signature holes of this challenging course or take a lesson from the pro…or do both!
Orange Beach Inshore Fishing
Spend a few hours or an entire day fishing the back bays of Gulf Shores & Orange Beach, Alabama. Inshore fishing is great year round, and yields abundant catches like mackerel, trout, redfish, flounder and many other species.
