The SpaceApril 23 is available Guest AccessThe Fairhope Pier Marina is located in a safe and secure, well lit public harbor. Please keep in mind that you are susceptible to the elements of Mother Nature. Wind, rain, tides and all elements of nature will play a part your adventure.
There is a restaurant with outdoor seating and additional restrooms conveniently located on the pier. Two bicycles can be provided at no additional charge if you would like to ride the Eastern Shore Bike trail, bike into town for some shopping or take a leisurely ride down to the beach. A tandem kayak is available for use to explore beautiful Mobile Bay and Fairhope.
Book a sail to make your adventure extra special. It is a great way to enjoy our magnificent sunsets! Interaction with GuestsYou will get an instructional tour of the boat and the marina at check in. You will be shown how to operate the functions of the boat from firing up the grill to flushing the toilet!
The boat is available for check in at 4pm and check out is 11am on day of departure. Early check in and late check out can be arranged if the boat is available. The NeighborhoodOur community was established in 1894 by a group of adventurous people who came together with a “fair hope of success." Their experimental community blossomed and grew into a city. Now, more than 110 years later, Fairhope's “success" is more than apparent in our bustling downtown, spacious parks, award winning landscape and tree-shaded neighborhoods.
Fairhope, often referred to as the jewel of the Eastern Shore, is not a big city with a population of approximately 16,000. It still retains much of its original small-town ambiance, but Fairhope is unique in many ways. Fairhope is known as a pedestrian's paradise that has an active arts community, exceptional schools, outstanding public services, excellent senior services, and top-notch recreational programs for all ages. It is also home or a weekend retreat for many famous artist and authors.
Fairhope has been recognized nationally and internationally for its environmental stewardship, beauty and quality of life. Fairhope continues to receive favorable notice in national magazines, including the Wall Street Journal, Southern Living, USA Today, The Smithsonian and Money Magazine. In 2010, Family Circle Magazine named Fairhope as one of the 10 best places to raise a family. It was voted as the most business friendly city in Alabama by the Alabama Policy Institute. Fairhope has also been recognized as one of the most romantic cities in America and most recently named one of the top 10 'Happiest Seaside Towns in America' by Coastal Living Magazine. Getting AroundWe will gladly provide 2 bicycles for the afternoon. I definitely recommend a scenic ride down the Eastern Shore Bike trail.
Transportation can be arranged from the airport for a small fee.
For getting around I recommend Bayside Taxi service Other Things to NoteThe boat is docked in a protected harbor however the boat is still effected by the elements of nature. As with any outdoor experience you are susceptible to wind, rain, temperature and all elements of nature.
