Mom’s Spring Break Guide

If you are like us, you are already dreaming of Spring Break… warmer weather, sunny skies and the beach! We have some ideas for you moms out there who are already planning an epic Spring Break. Check out these fun water sports and make this trip the one your kids can’t stop talking about!

Rent a boat or jet ski 

The Gulf and the intercoastal waterways are perfect places for speed, exploration, and maybe even a little fishing. Find a quiet spot on one of the nearby intercoastal islands for a picnic and some snorkeling. Turn around and find a pod of dolphins playing in your wake. Pull a tube or banana boat for some extreme fun. Check out our area guide for company recommendations.

What about checking out the view from 500 feet in the air? Enjoy the thrill and the beauty of parasailing and see the Gulf Coast like you have never seen it before. Be sure to make reservations in advance because weather can affect your ride time. In Alabama and Perdido Key, try OB Parasail. In 30A, try Wet’N’Wild Watersports.

Dolphin Cruise 

Get out on the water and see the Gulf’s favorite flipper friends, the bottle-nosed dolphins! In Orange Beach, book with Dolphins Down Under or Southern Rose. There are lots of tour companies near 30A; TripShock has a great list.

Pirate Cruise

For the littles, these cruises are so entertaining. Kids can act like a pirate, play games, and watch pirate actors. Book with Hudson Marina in Orange Beach and SeaDragon near 30A.

Airboat or Catboat Ride 

Try something different with a backwater adventure. These boat tours have it all: high speed, beautiful scenery and wildlife viewing. Airboat tours available with 30A Airboat Adventures. For a Cat Boat tour, try Orange Beach Cat Boat Tours.
