Mobile River & Mobile Bay – Dog River Marina (Port #43) – Nov 9

There will be 3 posts from Mobile Alabama.
This is the first of the 3 posts from Mobile ;
1. The ride down the Mobile River into downtown Mobile
2. Our visit to the USS Alabama Memorial Park
3. Our visit to the Dauphin Island Sea Lab Estuarium

The ride down the Mobile River, thru downtown Mobile Alabama, and into Mobile Bay was spectacular.
I will just let the pictures tell the story.
The 43ft Viking has never felt so small, vs the mega ships in the Mobile River.

Mobile Bay

As we exited the Mobile River, we turned into the Dog River, towards Dog River Marina.
We had about 45ft of water in the Mobile River.
As soon as we made the right turn into the Dog River inlet, the water depth was only 6 ft between the Red/Green day markers.

Later that night, we ate at the Mobile Yacht Club.
The special that day was Blackened Grouper.
It may have been the best Blackened Grouper (covered in secret sauce) that I have ever had.
I give a full 5 stars.
Jonell’s jumbo shrimp were also excellent.
We met the chef, he told us the Grouper is new fish / never frozen / every day.
I expect this will be a common update in future blog posts.
