TRIPSHOCK EXCLUSIVE: Book your private sightseeing cruise today.

Explore the beautiful, meandering waterways of Orange Beach, AL, with Back Bay Charters! Captain Don guides YOU AND YOUR PRIVATE PARTY ONLY on a relaxing, informative quest for smooth and pristine waters. Choose from morning, afternoon, and sunset departures for the perfect, and personal, cruise experience.

Activity Highlights
→ The gulf bays are ideal for dolphin watching as they frolic and play in their natural environment.
→ Beautiful beaches and wonderful memories await you along the Alabama coast.
→ Trips are customized to allow you and your party to fall in love with our area.
→ We specialize in memorable occasions such as birthdays, anniversaries, weddings and honeymoons.

Dolphin Cruise: Most encounters take place in the back bays around Perdido Key, FL, and the Orange Beach, AL, area. On occasion, we find dolphins just off the coast in the Gulf. Help us locate dolphins by bringing binoculars— keep your eyes peeled and your camera ready! You may see Osprey, Eagles, Blue Herons, Pelicans and many other birds and wetland animals indigenous to the bay area. The Gulf Coast waters play host to many sea turtles, sharks and rays. The unique, and private experience allows you and your party to view dolphins up close instead of from a distance on a large boat with 50 strangers.

Sunset Cruise: View the most beautiful sunsets the southeast has to offer along Alabama’s Gulf! We’d love to customize the perfect sunset cruise for you. Smooth water and red, pink, orange and blue skies will provide a flawless backdrop to a romantic evening on the water.

    Great trip

    Captain Ron was a great host He kept us and our 3 year old dtr entertained without intruding on our trip. He was determined to make sure we saw some dolphins and we saw a lot. Also it was very nice with the private cruise and being the only people in the boat. I would strongly recommend captain Ron and his private cruise to anyone. Great trip !!!!!

    Great Sunset and Dolphin Cruise with Captain Don

    This cruise was well worth the money. Captain Don was so personable and quickly determined our interest for sightseeing. Boat is super clean and everyone had a place to sit comfortably. We saw lots of dolphins, which was the primary reason for booking the tour. Hope to do this again next time in Orange Beach.
