Some people never leave the beach when they are on their Visit Alabama Beaches vacation and that is completely okay! However, we thought it was important to tell you about all the incredible adventures that are awaiting you in Gulf Shores and Orange Beach.

Sky Surfer Parasailing: We simply cannot stop bragging on the experience we had with Sky Surfer Parasailing. From the moment we checked in at the dock until we got back to the parking lot, safety and professionalism were the top priority of these gentlemen. The 34-foot parasail boat is roomy and is perfect for comfortable take offs and landings and their humor will keep you on your toes! Parasailing had been on our bucket list for a long time and getting the chance to see Gulf Shores and Orange Beach from 400 feet in the air was not something that is easily explained. As you can tell from the photos, there is no fear involved. You literally just sit and enjoy the view.


Flora-Bama Marina Watersports Rentals: What if I told you that you could rent a jet skit, pontoon, splash pad, or even get a boat chartered just by calling one location? That is exactly what you will find when you rent from Flora-Bama Marina. They are so kind and offer so much help if you will ask. They can take a basic vacation and elevate it into one that you will never forget!


Sea View Tours Glow Kayaks: Located at the Caribe Marina in Orange Beach, you can rent a clear kayak to be able to see all the beautiful marine life or you can take a night tour! Whether you take the day or night tour, a guide will take you out to Bird Island where even more fun is had! This is experience you do not want to miss especially if you enjoy kayaking or canoeing.

Beach Bike Rentals: This rental shop is in the perfect location! The trailhead of the Hugh S. Branyon Backcountry Trail that will take you along 26 miles of beautiful trails to experience a completely different side of Gulf Shores and Orange Beach! Beach Bike Rentals offers a bike for everyone! When you give them a call you will go through three important steps. The first is to choose your bike. You can choose from cruisers, tandems, adult trikes, and kid’s bikes. You will then choose if you need a helmet, bells, locks, or other accessories. Even though the trail system is literally steps away from their front door, they will deliver and pick up bikes in Fort Morgan, Gulf Shores, and Perdido Key.


Watch a Concert at The Wharf Amphitheater: We have already bragged on how amazing The Wharf is. But did you know they had an amphitheater that seats 10,000 and brings some of the biggest names in music there every month! For instance, Jimmy Buffet just played here as well as Kenny Chesney. If you hurry, you may can still get tickets to Morgan Wallen, Chris Stapleton, Hillsong, Keith Urban, and so many more that will be playing this year! Head on over to their site and get started!
