This river tour begins just south of Selma, Alabama on the Alabama River. The group will depart early Sunday from the Roland Cooper State Park and make their way south on a very remote and uninhabited section of the river. You'll pass through two locks on the way to our destination and will travel a scenic route down a wilderness river. Near the end of the 186-mile day we'll merge onto the Mobile River and reach our destination just north of Mobile Bay.

After a short shuttle into downtown Mobile, you'll arrive at the Historic Inn that will host our group for the next two nights. Listed on the national register of historic places, this circa 1862 hotel offers beautifully restored lodging, an interior courtyard and a swimming pool. We'll close out the evening with a private catered dinner for our group in what used to be the carriage house. Our crew will share more about the history and secrets of this fascinating location while on the trip.

On Day Two, the group will head out mid-morning on a 60+ mile run through the always amazing Mobile-Tensaw Delta. You'll twist and wind through beautiful creeks and narrow pipeline canals and the route will take you under some of the lowest and some of the tallest bridges of any trips we do. We'll share some of our favorite waterways, like Bayou Canot, Bayou Sara and Big Lizard Creek. After a great lunch and a fuel top-off you'll weave your way back to our docking location and catch a shuttle to the Inn. You'll have some free time to explore the downtown area, relax at the pool or take a nap before dinner.

On Tuesday, the final day of the tour, we'll lead the group back up river 186 miles to our original start point. Once again, you'll traverse two locks and enjoy a fabulous lunch along the way. As the sun begins to wane in the Alabama sky, you'll complete your 440-mile journey and your glimpse at a forgotten piece of an American River.
