Spring Break: Afternoon Activities in Gulf Shores

More Info

As the temperature rises in the Alabama Gulf Shores, Spring Break is about to offer even more to do. Best of all, with the waters at about 64°F, it's warm enough to swim at one of the many beaches, or fall into the water as you try your hand at paddleboarding.

For those that don't shy away from heights, there are plenty of options to feed your need for adrenaline. Flyboard Bama guarantees you'll fly 40 feet above the water, while BeachFlight Aviation promises that you can fly the aircraft over the Gulf Shores, Fort Morgan, Orange Beach, and more to take in the breathtaking views without the obstruction of a cockpit structure. Chute em up Parasail guarantees to be the cheapest place in the area to get your fill of parasailing from the largest, most comfortable parasail boat. So why not take in a birds-eye view of Gulf Shores during your Spring Break (without going broke doing it)? Or, if you'd rather have the guarantee of staying completely dry, zip through the treetops with Hummingbird Ziplines, where the guides are friendly and helpful, and are sure to make your adventure a memorable one.

If you want to see how you'd do with watersports, or you already have a passion for the thrill of gliding or speeding over water, there is no shortage of options. Blue Reef Watersports offers group discounts for those of you traveling with a large group of friends, and includes parasailing, Jet Ski rentals, and 2-hour guided Jet Ski and Dolphin tours. Alabama PaddleSports offers the best in paddle sports. If you're not sure that's for you, but your friends are insistent, they also offer kayak rentals, so the whole group can stick together! Water Warrior offers stand up paddleboarding lessons by the only ACA certified instructor in Alabama, and tailors to your needs so that you can truly master this growing sport.

If you want to take things a bit slower, the Beach n River Kayak Rentals allows you to be your own captain for an Eco-Kayak Tour on the Bon Secour River. Or, head over to the Mobile Bay Ferry that operates between Dauphin Island and Fort Morgan, and see what you're missing over on the other side! Alternatively, just hit up one of the numerous beaches, such as the Gulf State Park, and lounge on the soft sand, or dig for shells along the miles of beach. Be sure to bring your camera or phone to capture the beauty of the beach and trails during your Spring Break in Gulf Shores!
