Parasailing in Gulf Shores and Orange Beach

Top 5 Family Activities Your Attendees Will Love While on a Workcation at the Beach

When asking your team to travel for a conference, you may create more excitement by allowing them to bring their family along. 

What better place for a family workcation than the beach?!

Although your guests are there to attend a meeting, it’s important to schedule some downtime to spend with their families. A major plus to hosting your meeting at the beach is the long list of activities that are family-friendly. Gulf Shores and Orange Beach offer many adventures, but we have compiled a list of just a few to get you started. 

Family on a dolphin cruise in Orange Beach

Dolphin cruise - Guests are guaranteed to have fun when they see dolphins frolicking in their natural habitat! The Gulf Coast is home to a number of dolphin cruise options, all known to create smile after smile. Bring your camera for this photo-worthy adventure, as this memorable experience is sure to be a highlight of their visit.

Deep-sea fishing - The Alabama Gulf Coast offers a large selection of fishing charters with experienced captains who will take your guests out into the Gulf of Mexico for a chance to reel in the catch of a lifetime. Most captains welcome family members of all ages, but we recommend this activity for the older kids as these trips can be long. If you’re looking for a shorter charter trip, many fishing operators offer 2-, 4- and 6-hour inshore and offshore trips, too.

Parasailing - Your team members will gain a new coastal perspective as they fly above Alabama's gorgeous coastal waters while tethered to a guide boat. What a great way to see the water and beach area from new heights!
