Ziplining Tours

Ziplining is a rush like no other: riding the treetops over the lush coastal panorama below while you're suspended on a cable and reaching roller coaster speeds. Zip line staff is on hand to give you a quick how-to so you feel safe. After that, you’re flying between the trees like a bird (a very big bird). Sometimes called “canopy tours,” ziplining is enjoyed by all ages and fitness levels.


Hot-Air Balloon Tours

It’s up, up and away on a hot-air balloon flight over Gulf Shores and Orange Beach, gently soaring over bays, bayous, and beaches. Flights generally take place in the early morning or later evening when the winds are lightest. Hot air balloon rides are an adventurous activity, perfect for a couples vacation or a small group.


Helicopter Tours

Taking off from Gulf Shores Airport, helicopter tours offer a variety of choices. Go purely scenic, flying above the dazzling Gulf Shores and Orange Beach shoreline for the best view you've ever seen. Or take a ride into the past, flying over the Civil War-era Fort Morgan and nearby Fort Gaines. From a helicopter at that height, you’ll be able to spot shipwrecks resting on Alabama's Gulf sands as well fish and dolphin swimming below.


Delta Safari Tours

An ecotourism jewel just north of Mobile Bay, the Mobile-Tensaw River Delta includes a variety of habitats, including cypress swamps, brackish marshes, bottomland forests and underwater grass beds.
