In addition to dinner cruises they offer Happy Hour cruises, Jazz Champagne cruises, or just a waterfront sightseeing cruise.

A few suggestions for places to enjoy delicious food and accommodate a group - Moe's Bar B Que - Downtown in their back room, The Cheese Cottage on their outdoor patio, The Royal Scam has a beautiful covered courtyard, Heroes USA in West Mobile has a fun outdoor space with all the games on. After dinner head down to the historic Crescent Theater to recline in comfy seating while watching a seasonal favorite. "It's A Wonderful Life" shows December 20th and "Little Women" starts December 25th.

7. Gulf Coast Ducks

The Ducks are celebrating the holidays this year with a few seasonal tours including Duck the Halls, Santa's Breakfast Splash, and The Mean Green Naughty Tour. Your group will enjoy cruising the street of Mobile in a festive fashion.
