Make your own way to the tour operator's office in Gulf Shores, Alabama to meet your guide, who is an experienced fisherman with expertise in the local environment.
Begin with a safety briefing and introduction to the region's tides and weather. Next, review the equipment and receive complete instruction on paddling and fishing techniques for each of the targeted species of fish. Once on the water, your guide covers how to kayak, scout a fishing spot, and set up at your chosen spot.
Head into the Bon Secour National Wildlife Refuge where you might find wildlife such as dolphins, turtles, and a variety of shorebirds.
Fish species commonly found in these waters include speckled trout, red drum, snapper, flounder, Spanish mackerel, and jack crevalle. All trips are catch and release unless otherwise pre-arranged. If you want to keep your catch, there is a fish cleaning service with a portion of the fee donated to local conservation groups.
Morning trips allow you to take advantage of the morning bite and view the sunrise. Cooler weather and the sky lighting up at sunset is a feature of the evening tour.
