There are many reasons why you should set sail from Orange Beach, Alabama, but below are five that are at the top of our list.


  1. Robinson Island: Cruising out of the pier where Wild Hearts docks in Orange Beach lets you experience island life. Robinson Island is the perfect place to stop and splash about. The clear, shallow water is great for a quick swim before embarking on your sailing journey. Dropping anchor on Tuesdays and Thursdays is the Kayak Adventure Sail – guests may swim, kayak, snorkel and even try their skill on a standup paddleboard.


  1. Alabama Point Bridge: Car passengers will be envious as you sail beneath the Alabama Point Bridge at Perdido Pass through the endless blue water. On your way back to port during the Guided Snorkel & Sail Tour, put your fins on and explore the jetties at the pass. You’ll likely see grouper and other fish swimming about the area during your underwater adventure.
  1. Ono Island: Let the daydreaming begin! Sailing past the spectacular multi-million-dollar homes on Ono Island is the best way to view this private community. Rumors circulate regularly about celebrities who live or once lived on this island. Have you spotted any?
  1. Orange Beach Fishing: Have you reeled in the catch of the day during your beach vacation? You can on the Guided Fish & Snorkel Adventure. Both the young and young-at-heart enjoy casting their lines for fun on the Orange Beach cruise. After you’ve reeled in your prize fish, the crew will snap a photo and then release our underwater friends back into the Gulf of Mexico.
  1. Good Eats: Sailing, frolicking in the water and basking in the sun can work up quite the appetite. If you’re going for a short sail, once you hit land you’ll find plenty of nearby restaurants in Orange Beach where you can explore the local cuisine. You can also bring a small cooler aboard Wild Hearts with your own refreshments. On longer sails, including the Dolphins & Angels Sailing Adventure, our crew provides a lunch full of fresh ingredients and good eats.
