In addition to 5RDS boat tours, outfitter services, kayak shop & landing, "5 Rivers" as it is known to locals, is a free access AL State Lands property, with a live animal and delta exhibit hall, theatrette, Live Oak forest and gift shop.

5RDS operates throughout the Mobile-Tensaw Delta, the second largest river delta in the U.S., a prime location to see an abundance of wildlife and explore the recently expanded Bartram Canoe Trail - now at more than 200 miles long. From 2 hour excursions to multiple day camping, fishing and hunting, 5RDS has an adventure to fit all ages and skills.
