Thought of a couple more questions. :)

Is there anywhere on or near the island to go para-sailing? Would it be too cold for this in early March?

Additionally, I read something about people enjoying crabbing. Is this something that can be done in March?

Any recommended birding books for the island (I am a novice)?

Thanks!

There is a para sailing company next to the Pelican Pub on the north side of the island. Edible crabs are not readily available this time of year. You can chase sand crabs on the beach with a flash light right after dark. These little crabs are fun for the kids to catch in a hand held net. You do not eat these. It also may be too cold for this.

You might enjoy taking the ferry across to Fort Morgan to visit the Bon Secour National Wildlife Refuge....google it
