Blakeley Spotlights Birds and Boats On Delta-Docks Boat Tour July 15

Historic Blakeley State Park conducts a boat tour of the Mobile-Tensaw River Delta and the maritime activities of Mobile's port Saturday, July 15 aboard its 50-passenger Delta Explorer.

Visitors cooling in the breezes of the covered pontoon boat can expect an air show of osprey leading fledglings out of their nests, bald eagles,  and other wildlife before  turning downstream past newly built U.S. Navy ships moored in the Mobile River.

The three-hour narrated tour leaves the Blakeley Park dock on the Tensaw River at 9:30 a.m. Tickets are $35 for adults, $17 for children 6-12. They can be purchased on site prior to the tour start or reserved in advance by calling 251-626-5581 and using major credit cards. The U.S. Coast Guard inspected Delta Explorer is also available for charter.

Blakeley State Park is located on State Hwy. 225 about five miles north of its intersection with U.S. 31 at Spanish Fort. For more information go to
