Captain Curtis Bush practically grew up on the waters running from Dauphin Island to Pensacola. He spent his youth fishing the Gulf and learning to navigate the artificial reefs. As the owner and captain of Max Drag Charters, he now shares this passion with small groups of individuals seeking to enjoy a half- or full-day excursion out on the waters, where deep-sea fishing and soothing ocean views provide a welcome escape from everyday landlocked life. Passengers can sink into the vessel's padded seats as they relax with a drink and patiently wait to reel in a sizable red snapper—the area's most prominent fish—or anything from a spotted seatrout to a cobia. Every excursion includes full access to the bait and tackle and assistance cleaning any catches.

Members of Freedom Boat Club enjoy the luxury of captaining their own aquatic excursions without the maintenance and storage hassles of owning a boat. Outings begin with a boat-orientation course, during which an experienced captain teaches students key nautical skills such as tying knots, docking in the wind, and navigating by the position of a half-eaten sandwich that kind of looks like the Big Dipper. Once skippers feel comfortable commanding a water chariot, they take to the seas for a day of sailing along with up to six additional guests. With the trial membership, boaters can choose any available Hurricane deck boat, inshore fishing boat, or pontoon. Hop aboard Orange Beach's 21-foot Hurricane 2100 to cut through the water on the strength of a 150-hp engine or commandeer Perdido Key's Sweetwater 2486 pontoon boat to benefit from a deck-top canopy in the event that a witch's curse makes it rain salamanders.

Combining entertainment, information, and breath-taking views, Cruise Orange Beach's captains take passengers to the waters of the Alabama Gulf Coast for an afternoon of adventure. The captains helm two 50-foot vessels—the Ann-Sea and Dolphin-Fun—ferrying passengers of all ages on fun-filled cruises that might result in sightings of leaping dolphins and sunbathing krakens. Best of all, midway through the trip, the crews pull the two boats side by side and incite a water war. Armed with water cannons, kids and adults alike soak the opposing group—or their own leader if they've declared mutiny—in a spirited water fight. Passengers will even get a chance to handle a live blue crab plucked from one of the scattered crab traps before returning to shore.

Although these sightseeing trips comprise most of Cruise Orange Beach's outings, the captains also offer private charters for visitors looking to scuba dive, parasail, or view the sunset while bobbing in the water.

In the real world, superpowers don't come from a radioactive spider or some magical ring. They come from a 60-foot hose, which attaches to a personal watercraft known as a flyboard. Flyboard Bama uses those flyboards to send people soaring up to 30 feet into the air. The board straps to the feet, and two jets spew water to create lift, which allows riders to perform tricks or even dive into the water like a dolphin. Flyboard Bama also offers dolphin cruises and parasailing.
