Launching from Mobile is a nice close site to watch humpbacks and minkes when the caplin are starting to roll.
Unfortunately, nature is late this year - so no whales but a rather large bald eagle was found, perched on the tree line on the north side of the bay. This one or another bald eagle was thought to have picked up a small otter in Bay Bulls. I don't know if this is local hiking or kayak mythology but based on the size of this eagle it could certainly be possible. So hikers should keep small dogs on a short leash.
