Blakeley Cruises to explore past and present along area rivers

Posted

Historic Blakeley State Park’s Delta Explorer explores the rich history and vibrant present of the Mobile and Tensaw Rivers in some special upcoming September cruises.

On Sept. 11 at 9 a.m., we journey from the Blakeley dock through the scenic Delta and down through the busy port of Mobile for a unique look at one of the nation’s busiest harbors.

The next Saturday, Sept.18, the park offers a special “Civil War on the Eastern Shore” cruise from the Five Rivers Delta Resource Center which takes guests to the sites where the combined-forces Campaign for Mobile unfolded in 1865. Arrive early for a guided tour of the unique tree diversity on the grounds of Five Rivers led by acclaimed local naturalist Fred Nation.

Other cruises, including a sunset outing and a Sunday afternoon cruise from Five Rivers are scheduled that weekend, as well. For a complete cruise listing and to reserve your seat, visit the events page on our website, www.blakeleypark.com, to book tickets online. The Delta Explorer is a U.S. Coast Guard inspected vessel operated by licensed captains.
