Mobile Airboat ToursMobile Airboat Tours will get you out onto the Mobile-Tensaw River Delta the way no other tour can. Airboats are fast, fun, and exciting. Plus they can maneuver more quietly and in shallower waters than most boats for even better, up-close wildlife experiences!

The Mobile-Tensaw River Delta is a natural gem and one of the most unique watersheds in the world. Here, five fresh water rivers – the Mobile, Spanish, Tensaw, Apalachee, and Blakeley – come together as they flow into the salt waters of Mobile Bay.

This collision of fresh and salt water creates an unusual environment that supports a vast network of plants and animals. Many of the plants and animals found here are unique to this environment. In fact, the Mobile-Tensaw River Delta is home to hundreds of acres of threatened and endangered species.

People travel from around the world to experience and explore the Mobile-Tensaw River Delta. Mobile airboat tours are one of the most popular ways to see this very special region. Why are they so popular? It’s the flexibility.

An airboat can provide a high speed thrill ride, a serene wildlife safari, and all stages in between. Airboats are light, fast, and can slip quietly through shallow waters that other powerboats find impassable. This allows them the ability to provide those up-close, wildlife encounters we all dream of better than most other tours.

Alabama’s Mobile-Tensaw Delta is a complex network of rivers, creeks, bays, lakes, wetlands, and bayous flowing out into Mobile Bay.

5 major rivers flow into the Gulf of Mexico here. The Mobile, Spanish, Tensaw, Apalachee, and Blakeley rivers all flow out into the Gulf via Mobile Bay. The tide returns the favor and pushes back up the rivers, salting the wetlands, creeks, and bayous of the Delta.

This mix creates a unique environment supporting a broad spectrum of plants and animals. More than 450 different species thrive here. Humans thrive here as well, getting out into the Delta in a variety of ways for a variety of reasons.

One of the more exciting ways is on a Mobile-Tensaw Delta airboat tour!
