Here in Gulf Shores and Orange Beach, multiple tours are offered on a variety of vessels including, glass-bottom boats, sailboats, catamarans, catboats, and kayaks. Since we are surrounded by water, you can find dolphins in the Gulf or along the backways and inlets, and cruises are available in all three.
When you embark on one of these fun tours, not only will you see dolphins, but you’ll learn about them from our knowledgeable guides. The boat’s captain or tour leader will inform you about the behaviors and habitat of the dolphins that live along the Gulf Coast and show you where they like to hang out. As you cruise through the waters, be sure to be on the lookout and have your cameras ready when they appear. You might catch a fin rise above the surface or see a few dolphins pop up to say hello.
While these excursions are available throughout the day, one of the best times to go is during the evening. You can catch the sun setting over the water as you watch for dolphins. During your tour, you’ll probably spot other wildlife in the area, so keep your eyes peeled.
Dolphins are some of the most friendly and cute residents on the Alabama Gulf Coast. Their playful nature makes them hard to resist. During your stay in Gulf Shores and Orange Beach, be sure to book a dolphin cruise to see these beautiful creatures in their natural habitat.
