In the Gulf Shores area, Wishbone isn't a television show about a dog, but instead, it's one of the many charter companies providing not only fishing trips, but also cruises specific to your desire.

Another place of interest on land is the Bon Secour National Wildlife Refuge Beach. This beach includes the opportunity to take a hike along the two-mile Pine Beach Trail as it weaves through the palmettos, live oaks and Spanish moss, past Gator Lake and Little Lagoon and into dunes and an all-natural beach. Along the trail you'll have chances to see birds and other wildlife that have made the refuge their home.
