What to Do and See in Ft. Morgan

Ft. Morgan has become one of my favorite places. I work and live part of the time in Ft. Morgan and cannot think of another place I would rather be. It is unique in the fact that the Dunes Community, where I work, is located very near the end of the Island.
Visitors traveling in from the west can come to Ft. Morgan via the Mobile Bay Ferry. The drive to the ferry is delightfully scenic as you travel over water and across Dauphin Island to catch you boat. Catching the ferry is our regular guest's favorite way to begin their vacation. Once you step foot on the ferry your vacation has begun. This trip is fun too you often get to see dolphin, all sorts of seabirds and even a sea turtle every now and then. Be sure to call ahead and check to see how busy they are and get the schedule. Getting stuck waiting for the ferry is not the way any one's vacation should start..
This nearness to the end of the island allow for adventures, almost daily. We have wildlife watching that will astound you at every turn. You can watch the dolphin feeding and playing just off shore from your condo balcony, or the beach. Sting Ray, Manta Ray, and Skate migrate through in the spring and fall. We also have a by annual bird migration with a banding station less than a mile from the community. If take a walk on the very end of the island you will always find, unique shells just waiting to be found. The Sea Turtle nesting season starts during the summer when the mothers come on shore and lay their nests, these same nests will hatch in the fall. Sea Turtle hatchlings are naturally one of the cutest animals around, and watching them got into the water and swim away is an event not to be missed. Local volunteers keep an eye on them with help of the officers at the Bon Secour Refuge. This area is part of the Bon Secour Refuge and the refuge office is not far. Visitors can stop by the refuge office and learn more about the local wildlife, and they can even track the sea turtle nests on line at the Alabama Sea Turtle website. Wild life is not the only attraction we have in Ft. Morgan. While you are here be sure to stop in and visit the areas namesake Ft. Morgan. A civil war fort put in place to help guard the entrance of Moblie Bay along with Ft. Gains on Dauphin Island. Ft. Morgan has civil war reenactments in the evenings throughout the year which includes period dress and a canon firing and discussions about period food, medicine, and the activities of the soldiers while the fort was active. Ft. Morgan is definitely a place to explore history as well.
If you like to fish Ft. Morgan is the place to for you to visit. We have water on three sides of the area!!! The Gulf Shores Yacht Club and Marina can help you with a deep sea or an inshore charter. They also have the opportunities for walk on fishing trips, and even Dolphin cruises. The marina is within walking distance of the Dunes Community. Be sure to visit Tacky Jacks 2 at the Marina for breakfast before you head out on your trip.
While I am telling you of all the wonderful things about Ft. Morgan, I cannot forget the most striking. Because we are on the end of the Island you cannot help be see the beautiful sunset every day. The sunsets here are beautiful, inspiring, and absolutely romantic.
When you visit Ft. Morgan be sure not to plan so much fun with all of the great adventures available, that you can't take time to have a quiet walk at sunset with someone you love.
