Dauphin Island Gulf Paddle
Get ready for some sea kayaking adventure in the Gulf of Mexico on this trip around the south side of Dauphin Island. Highlights of this trip includes the thrill of riding the waves with the salt spray in your face, large pelicans soaring all around you and diving into the blue Gulf waters for a meal, and dolphins swimming close by.
Destination Distance From Downtown
This is a sea kayaking trip and inherently dangerous with high waves, strong currents, and sudden pop-up storms.
Time To Complete
Time to complete is actually variable depending on your paddling speed, weather, current, and how much time you spend taking pictures.
While anytime is a good time to paddle this trip, summertime presents the danger of numerous severe thunderstorms popping up unexpectedly and wintertime winds can make paddling impossible, not to mention the extremely cold water.
