Excursion to The Bottle Creek Mound Complex
January 12 @ 9:30 am - 12:30 pm CST
Historic Blakeley State Park invites you to join us for a special boat cruise through the scenic and historic Mobile-Tensaw Delta aboard the 50 passenger covered pontoon boat, the Delta Explorer. Piloted by licensed captains, the boat features bench seating and a restroom facility.
The stunning Bottle Creek site, accessible only by boat, features 18 earthen mounds built centuries ago by Native Americans and was once of the largest communities in the Southeast. Guests may climb the tallest of the mounds, which rises some 45 feet above the delta marsh! This cruise offered in fall and winter.
Guests will board the Delta Explorer at Lower Bryant’s Landing at 9:30 a.m. for the cruise to the site, then go ashore for a walking tour of the mound complex and an additional hike to the top of the tallest mounds before returning to the Landing. As these excursions are some of our most popular, we encourage you to book your seat early!
Note that we board upriver at Lower Bryant Landing!
Cost is $35. For reservations please visit www.blakeleypark.com/events or call 251-626-0798.
