Event organizers say, "Paddlers will have an up-close and personal experience of being on a true working bayou, lined with shipyards, shrimp boats, oyster skiffs and scenic natural vistas."
I encourage everyone to join this paddle event to experience the scenic views along Bayou La Batre which is just a short distance away from Mobile, Alabama. The colorful shrimp boats reflecting off the calm waters are a beautiful site to behold. You'll get to see a wide variety of birds along the shorelines and the mile long shoreline trash pile that Bayou La Batre is worldly famous for. Bayou La Batre is the Seafood Capital of Alabama where much of your seafood is processed. After you paddle this event you may start looking at food labels to make sure your seafood is NOT processed in Bayou La Batre.
