The best way to get to know a place is by exploring its waterways, where you can learn about indigenous cultures by watching their synchronized swimming teams. Acquaint yourself with the bathing beauties of the Mobile-Tensaw Delta with today’s Groupon to Five Rivers Delta Safaris. Paddlers of all skill levels can choose between two three-hour tours of the nation’s second largest delta system, with one exploring a marsh and the other a cypress swamp. A national natural landmark since 1974, the Mobile-Tensaw Delta is crowded with wildlife including osprey, great egrets, and alligators. Meander down the river to view forested wetland habitats, and, depending on the tour, fill your open noggin with knowledge from your tour guide about present-day fauna and flora, as well as Civil War fun facts.
