Just some info:
We have 6 kids (12 and under) and were wondering if Dauphin Island would be a nice excusion from Orange Beach for the day? I see we can take our car across on a ferry (which the kids will think is neat).
We are going mid November. Fort Gaines, some fishing and maybe the Sea Lab are on our intinerary.
Does it feel too cold by the water in November for little ones? Is there anything else on the island I may be missing that they will enjoy?
Is the dog okay at Fort Gaines? Or should we leave her behind at the condo in Orange Beach?
We are traveling on a tight budget and just wanted to the thoughts of those there or have been there.
In your opinion, is it worth a day trip over in mid November? I just want to make sure we don't waste the ferry money over if there if it isn't the right place for our family.
