From deep-sea fishing to award-winning golf to super masculine massages, you’ll find everything you need to enjoy an epic mancation on our beautiful beaches. You won’t even need to do much planning – just book your stay with Aqua Vacations and get inspired with these six great mancation activities in Gulf Shores and Orange Beach.

Golf our award-winning courses

Getting out on the green is a great way to bond with your buddies, and the Alabama Gulf Coast is a golfer’s paradise. There are more than a dozen championship courses across the area, offering more than 200 holes of golf for players of all abilities. Although each course is slightly different, they all offer stunning coastal scenery, first-class amenities, engaging play and exceptional service. As a guest of Aqua Vacations, you can even enjoy complimentary access to some of the area’s premiere golf courses!

Book a chartered fishing trip

Outdoor adventure, friendly competition, lifelong bragging rights – a chartered fishing trip has all the ingredients for a memorable mancation. Orange Beach is also home to the largest charter fishing fleet on the Gulf Coast, so you’ll have no problem finding an experienced crew to help you land a trophy-sized catch. Tours range from half-day treks to overnight adventures, and you can target everything from cobia and amberjack to red snapper, sharks, and tuna. Whether you want to inshore fish our scenic back bays or head miles offshore on a hunt for giant predators, you’re sure to catch a good time.

Make some waves

If yours is a group of thrill-seekers, you’ll love the wide variety of watersport rentals at your fingertips. From jet skis and paddleboards to pontoon boats and kayaks, there are so many ways to make some waves on the Alabama Gulf Coast. If you book with Aqua Vacations, you can even enjoy a complimentary jet ski rental or banana boat ride.

Try ax throwing

Channel your inner lumberjack at Civil Ax Throwing, where hurling sharp objects isn’t only allowed – it’s the entire point. After some basic instructions and safety tips from a professional thrower, you’ll be let loose to throw your own axes at a wooden target in hopes of hitting the bullseye. Bring your own snacks and drinks to make a night of it.

Get crafty at Big Beach Brewing Company

If you’re craving a craft beer, Big Beach Brewery has got you covered. This 10-barrel brewhouse creates the freshest ales around, with 12 rotating taps offering a variety of in-house brews for all beer lovers. You and the guys can hang in the open-air taproom as you sample the selection, jam to live music, and enjoy the intoxicating atmosphere.

Aqua Vacations can set you up in the perfect Gulf Coast property, from condos packed with awesome perks to private homes with cool outdoor spaces.
