We'll be arriving in Gulf Shores on Saturday, July 7, staying in a condo on West Beach Boulevard. We're coming from Illinois, through Mobile. I'm strongly considering taking AL-193 to Dauphin Island, then taking the Mobile Bay Ferry over to Fort Morgan and driving in that way. Looks to be much more scenic, and I think my daughter would enjoy the ferry & the long Dauphin Island bridge. My only concern, though - will there be a terribly long wait to get onto the ferry on a Saturday afternoon? I'm guessing we'll arrive at the ferry somewhere around noon. We can't check in to the condo until after 3:00, so as long as the wait isn't several hours, we should be fine. But could it possibly be a multi-hour long wait?
Thanks for your help!
