Other Lighthouse Information:
The Mobile Bay lighthouse is the sister of the Hooper Straight lighthouse in Tangier Sound, Maryland. The foundation is iron screw pilings. The Alabama Lighthouse Association wanted to relocate the lighthouse to the mainland so it would be easier to take care of and be accessible to the public. The Alabama Historical Commission voted against the proposed move. Now each year $30,000 will be spent on maintenance and restoration at its present location in the middle of Mobile Bay.


The Lighthouse Hunters Experience:
For us to photograph the Mobile Middle Bay lighthouse we chartered Captain Cindy Frank of Making Waves Charters. We boarded her 31 foot boat and left the dock at the Marriott Grand Hotel in Point Clear, AL at 7:20 in the morning. The lighthouse was 6 miles away. When we arrived, there were a few birds flying around. We circled the lighthouse twice before heading back to the dock. Our boat trip took a total of 90 minutes.

Photographed it: March 24, 2004
