Close your eyes and daydream with us for a moment. Imagine a blue-sky day aboard a boat surrounded by shimmering water. Sea gulls dive into the water for their dinner, truly a fresh catch. Friendly dolphins dance in sequence, just a short distance from the boat, and Caribbean music sets the tone for a relaxing dolphin cruise through Wolf Bay and the surrounding waters of Orange Beach, Alabama. We offer a two-hour dolphin and nature eco tour aboard our 40' Pontoon style vessel aboard The Explorer and a two-hour sailing cruise aboard our 52' sailing catamaran. More Info More Info

Greet Guests with a Taste of Gulf Shores & Orange Beach

What better way to catch up with family and friends who have traveled from all over than having a welcome party on a beautiful Alabama beach? Show off some of the great things that the area has to offer. Your guests will be grateful to be welcomed by some good, southern barbecue. While you have the whole gang together in Alabama, give out a sheet with a quick list of suggested activities to enjoy during downtime over the weekend. Fishing, golfing, biking, and water sports are just a few options that your guests will love.

The Rehearsal Dinner

Whether you prefer a casual location or something a bit more formal, you'll find plenty of rehearsal dinner options throughout the Gulf Coast area. Sit down for a fresh, delicious seafood dinner after practicing your walk down the aisle at one of our fan favorite special occasion restaurants.

Wedding & Reception Venues

Are you dreaming of a fairytale wedding ceremony in a ballroom filled with family and friends? Would you rather be barefoot on a beach while exchanging your vows with your new husband or wife? There are local venues that will suit either plan perfectly. When planning your wedding weekend, especially one including outdoor events, be sure to take local weather into consideration. Some months will come with chilly evenings, and summer months may be too hot for a daytime wedding under the sun.

Keep the Fun Going

The party doesn't have to end after the reception. The nightlife in Gulf Shores and Orange Beach has plenty to offer. Invite guests to enjoy live music and a couple of drinks before ending the night. If your guests have traveled from out of town, be ready to give them recommendations for all of your favorite places to visit in the area.
