Why We Love This

  • Relaxing evening excursion down the rivers of the Delta

  • Experience Mobile's sunset from the Bay

Historic Blakeley State Park

Experience the beauty of a glorious sunset on Mobile Bay during a relaxing excursion down the waterways of the lower Mobile-Tensaw Delta.

What You'll Do

We loved the sunset Cruise. The grandkids had a wonderful time. The captain took time with the kids which made it more enjoyable to everyone. We will be doing it again! Thanks

"Good experience overall "

May 25, 2019 - 

We enjoyed the sunset cruise from Blakeley Park. The captain could have narrated more by giving local history, identifying the different wildlife and plants, and giving our location ( there are five different rivers here). Passengers had to figure out for themselves where soft drinks were available. A significant amount of pubic address time was devoted to announcing souvenirs. Beautiful sunset. Very relaxing. A little more effort, and it could be five stars.


May 25, 2019 - 

The boat crew was OUTSTANDING! This was my second cruise. Each time I take a different person. They have enjoyed it. No too long and not too short. I will be doing again!

"Great time"

September 30, 2018 - 

Good duration . Guide friendly and informative without idle annoying chatter.


September 29, 2018 - 

Very interesting despite zero sunset. Very friendly people onboard and entertaining and informative crew. Safety was good and good care for departing scary cats!


September 1, 2018 - 

We thoroughly enjoyed the cruise. I love the narration except it was hard to understand and part of that I think was due to the wind. Only thing that could have made it better was a nice glass of wine! Will definitely do it again
