    Take a break from the bustling beach and enjoy three-hours of peaceful and tranquil paddling in the secluded inlets of the Bon Secour National Wildlife Refuge (BSNWR). Just minutes from bustling Gulf Shores, the BSNWR Kayak Tour immerses you in a coastal wilderness! We will visit a portion of the park that no driving tourist can reach as it is accessible only by kayak. Join us in exploring this extraordinary haven for migratory birds, nesting Loggerhead and Kemp's Ridley sea turtles, and the endangered Alabama beach mouse. Additionally, the waterways we’ll be paddling to reach the refuge are prime dolphin habitat so make sure to keep your eyes peeled for dorsal fins! Named as one of the 10 natural wonders of Alabama, the refuge serves the additional benefit of comprising one of the largest undeveloped parcels of land on the Alabama coast - its dunes are a reminder of the Gulf Coast, as it once existed. This tour is definitely a MUST DO for any true eco-tourist! Regularly observed birds in BSNWR: Belted KingFisher, Great Blue Heron, Osprey, Great Egret, Cormorant, and Brown Pelican. In addition to the BSNWR, parts of the Bon Secour River, Oyster Bay, and the Intracoastal Waterway are also covered by the tour. Led by experienced Coastal Nature Guides who will introduce you to the fauna, flora, and history of the Bon Secour National Wildlife Refuge and Gulf Shores, AL.
