Mobile Bay Ferry
Great views, photo opportunities and neat experience. The ferry gets busy sometimes so make sure to arrive early.
Take a trip over to Dauphin Island in Mobile County on the Ferry, it’s pretty cool!
No better way to tour Mobile Bay on a budget than taking the Ferry to Dauphin Island and back. It's about a 40 minute ride each way. You can go by car, walk on or our favorite is taking a bike. If you walk on or take a bike, it's only $5 per person. Dauphin Island has a bike path making it easy…
Ferry to Fort Morgan. For days out in Fort Morgan, Gulf Shores, Orange Beach, Perdido, and Flora-Bama.
Take the 40 minute ride on the auto and pedestrian ferry over to explore Dauphin Island. Great adventure cruising past the Oil Platforms and watching for the jellyfish and pelicans.
“The Peninsula golf course is another excellent course. Located about 11 miles east of Wind Song.”
“Fort Gains is on Dauphin Island right at the mouth of Mobile Bay. It's the other bookend to Fort Morgan. Together they guarded the entrance to the bay. Very close to the ferry landing and the Dauphin Island Sea Lab. If you were going to visit just one of the two forts, Fort Morgan is easier to get to since you won't need the ferry. But if you are going to Dauphin Island Sea Lab it will be convenient. Website: dauphinisland.org/fort-gaines”
“Excellent food with gorgeous views of the gulf! Just take the elevator to the ground floor!”
“Excellent display of the fish to be found in Mobile Bay and the Gulf of Mexico.”
“Kiva Dunes is next door to the Plantation. It is close enough to walk to if you prefer. The food is delicious. It has a nice menu for breakfast, lunch, or dinner. A pizza menu is also available as well as delicious drinks. It is open 7 days a week until 7:00 PM. I've never had to wait to be seated.”
