Mermaid Cruise by Caribe Marina & Watersports

Duration1.5 Hours
Have you ever seen a live mermaid? No? Here's your chance to see and meet one with Caribe Marina & Watersports! This...
This cruise was great, the staff was very nice and gave us some intel about the properties around us. Mark was our captain and Jessica was our mate. Jessica did a really good job at keeping the kids busy as we were searching for dolphins before beginning our search for the mermaids. Mark was really great at keeping everyone informed of the properties and driving the boat of course. It was nice to learn about these multi million dollar homes as a adult. lol. So, we went searching for dolphins first and then the captain said he got word of some mermaids, so we headed over to the spot. There was many kids on this tour. Jessica told the kids about seashells and how mermaids needed them to survive. Once docked, we all got off the boat by ladder. There is no dock so you do get in the water and the beach has some sticks and hermit crabs in the water… So i would highly recommend water shoes. The kids LOVE IT! Would highly recommend for kids ages 3-10. They also give you cute certificates at the end!
This was a very cute experience, I can see this being a hit with the little ones! The mermaids were never out of character, deckhands were awesome and the overall experience was very unique and enjoyable.
In our family, we love all things nautical and of course that includes mermaids! After seeing an advertisement online, we booked and were emailed and texted confirmations really fast. Upon arrival, we parked for free in their parking lot and made our way down to the tiki hut on the bay to check in. Once checked in, we headed over to the boat. It's a super clean covered boat, kind of like a big pontoon with tables and booth style seating. And a bathroom! When the tour started we got to hear the story of the mermaids then cruised our way around the bay seeing a sea turtle and some dolphins! The kids on our boat spotted the mermaids first and they were so fun to talk to. The kids all brought them sea shells and posed for pics with them. I would reccamend watershoes since there are some areas I walked thru the water and stepped on sticks and shells. The mermaids showed off their fin waving skills and played with all the kids. Our group hasn't stopped talking about it and we hope to bring more of our family soon!

My Daughter Loved Swimming with Mermaids

How did you discover this activity?

We Googled things to do in Gulf Shores. When I found the Mermaid tour, I knew I had to book this unique tour for my daughter!

When did you book your tour compared to the departure date?

We booked our tour two days before, while we were on our way to Gulf Shores.

Why did you choose this activity?

My 8-year-old daughter loves mermaids. How wonderful she would be able to meet them in person!

How did you get to the activity location?

The marina was about 10 minutes away from our beach house. It was very easy to find!

What was your experience with the activity's staff?

The captain and firstmate were very knowledgeable. They pointed out a lot of landmarks and chatted with everyone on the tour.

Highlights or memories you and your group will take from the trip?

My daughter loved getting up close and swimming with the mermaids! They took their time, and were very patient with each child.

They found shells together, they taught them how to swim like a mermaid, and they answered the millions of questions each little one had!

Parents got to watch from the boat or in the water. The kids were completely safe and watched by everyone. My daughter said it was the best time of our whole trip. We made wonderful memories she will cherish forever!

Would you recommend this activity to another group like yours? Why or why not?

This is a great trip for families. I would say it's appropriate for children under ten.
