Alabama is home to some of the most peaceful and serene boating waters in the Southeast. Whether you are water skiing, wake-boarding, pulling a towable or just seeking a restful day on the water, our pristine lakes are ideal for boating. You'll find more than 1 million acres of lakes ready for your enjoyment.
Several places, such as Doublehead Resort in North Alabama, provide a spot to enjoy the day boating or just hanging out at one of the waterfront cottages. For those who wish to leave the boating to the experts, the Harriott II Riverboat, modeled after the grand paddle-wheelers of the 1900s, may provide the perfect getaway. For a special treat, sail on the Daedalus, which breaks shore from Orange Beach every day for swimming, sightseeing and sunset excursions.
