Historic Blakeley State Park is excited to announce that beginning in September it will be offering a variety of its popular cruises from Five Rivers Delta Resource Center on two weekends per month. Until now, the park's Delta Explorer has cruised from the Five Rivers dock ONE weekend per month. The new schedule will double the opportunities for the public to exploring the Mobile-Tensaw Delta from the Five Rivers facility.
A number of special cruises are planned for the fall to celebrate this new partnership. In addition to the customary Friday sunset cruises, Saturday morning and afternoon "Delta Discovery" tours, and Sunday afternoon excursions, some new offerings will be added to the schedule. These include a two and a half hour "Secret Delta Tour," 90-minute "Animal Ambassador" and Birding cruises, and several new three-hour trips.
There will be a voyage to the legendary Twelve-Mile Island, site of the scuttling of the Clotilda, and a venture up the Tensaw to the site of where the famed "Ghost Fleet" was once moored. In September the park will offer a unique journey of discovery into the Mobile Bay area's past on a special "Revolutionary War on Mobile Bay" cruise. Later this fall, there will be more cruises combined with dinner at one of the seafood restaurants on the Causeway, as well.
