The boat is covered, has bench seating, and a restroom facility. The cruise is three hours.
Very young children are allowed, but parents need to bring life vests for children under four years of age; the Coast Guard cannot guarantee the boat's life rings will fit toddlers.
The park is located on State Hwy. 225 4.5 miles north of its intersection with Hwy. 31 in Spanish Fort (approximately 5 miles north of I-10) and ca. 15 miles south of I-65.
Arrive at the park at least thirty minutes prior to boarding to allow for travel time and to check-in and board.
Plenty of parking at the dock area.
Guests may bring bottled water and snacks if desired.
Cruise tickets are nonrefundable but may be transferred to any other cruise or park facility rental in the event you need to cancel.
For safety reasons, the boat cannot go out in lightning and heavy thunderstorms. Cruises will take place as scheduled if only light precipitation is forecasted.
Despite the extreme fog around the Port of Mobile, the trip was very informative and worthwhile. We learned a lot and the hosts were intent on making sure we did! They were not responsible for the fog.
We thoroughly enjoy the river cruises out of Ft. Blakeley. This cruise was no exception. Good cruise Captain. Both he and Richard are very knowledgeable and informative. Fog could have cooperated but that is something that cannot be controlled.
