Orange Beach & Gulf Shores
Grab your paddle and get ready to cruise the waters of Coastal Alabama. Over in Orange Beach, The Wind & Water Learning Center teaches kayak-enthusiasts of all ages and skill sets how to paddle (and even sail!). Classes are held over on Wolf Bay so you can easily launch out on the water. Experienced paddlers will jump at the opportunity to paddle on the Perdido Pass. Boggy Point boat launch is a great place to set sail on the water. Many of the restaurants in Orange Beach even feature soft grass beds with a no-motor zone where you can pull up in your kayak and enjoy a delicious Gulf meal.
Meanwhile, in Gulf Shores, Little Lagoon is a hidden gem that you’ll love to explore. Calm and shallow waters make it perfect for kayaking, and you won’t find a lot of boats here. The area is also home to a variety of wildlife – you’ll be able to spot so many species of birds here! Hop in your kayak and get ready to explore this 10-mile stretch of tranquil water.
