Inshore saltwater fishing: Fish within just minutes of leaving the dock! Specializing in small groups of 6 or less. Multiple boat trips also available for large group events. Tackle, bait, license and instruction included. Fishing for speckled trout, redfish, flounder and more. Let Capt. Cindy Frank customize your trip just for you. Fish aboard the 26′ Pangaroo or the 31′ Moonlighting, docked at the Grand Hotel Marriott. Children welcome!

Scenic Cruises: The scenic waterways of our area have so much to offer, explore our local waters with us, they are our hidden secret. Quiet and peaceful, bring your own food and drink or stop at one of the restaurants on the water. Ospreys flying overhead, magnolias lining the bank and historic homes along the waterway make this a special adventure. Don’t forget a trip to Middle Bay Lighthouse as well!

Sail the Schooner Joshua, Alabama’s Official Tall Ship and Tall Ship for the City of Mobile: Help the crew raise the sails, take a turn at the wheel or relax and enjoy the breeze while you sail on historic Mobile Bay. A sail aboard the spacious and stable Schooner Joshua is said to be the highlight of many occasions and Capt. Carol Bramblett and her professional crew will make you feel more like a personal guest than a customer. Coast Guard licensed for up to 49 passengers but also available for small sails of 15 passengers or less. A great way to entertain clients, family and friends!
