Battle of Mobile Bay Tour by Lost Bay Helicopters
For the Civil War buff, and for the curious visitor that wants to know Southern Alabama for more than its beaches, our 40+ minute Battle of Mobile Bay Tour ventures West down the coast to soak in aerial views of Dauphin Island, as well as historical Fort Morgan and Fort Gaines. These iconic landmarks have guarded the mouth of Mobile Bay for over a hundred years, have played a dramatic role in the history of this area, and have you ever heard the expression, "Damn the torpedoes"? Your private tour pilot will tell you that story and more during your once-in-a-lifetime aerial Civil War tour!
