The Mobile Delta consists of approximately 20,323 acres of water just north of Mobile Bay. Second only to the Mississippi River Delta in size, the Mobile Delta is an environmental showplace that is 30 miles long and 12 miles wide. It covers more than 200,000 acres of swamps, river bottomlands and marshes. Congress named the Mobile Delta a National Natural Landmark in 1974; fewer than 600 sites have received that honor. The Alabama Environmental Council considers the Delta as one of "Alabama's Ten Natural Wonders." Formed by the confluence of the Alabama and Tombigbee rivers, the Mobile Delta is a complex network of tidally influenced rivers, creeks, bays, lakes, wetlands, and bayous.

 

Since the Mobile Delta empties into Mobile Bay, it is a productive estuary with numerous species of fresh and saltwater fish. The Bartram Canoe Trail is a unique way to see the Delta; a map of the Trail is available from the Lands Division. TheMobile-Tensaw Delta and W. L. Holland Wildife Management Areas and Upper Delta Wildlife Management Area offer hunting and wildlife viewing opportunities for those utilizing the Delta. Anglers enjoy the Delta because of the good fishing and because of the natural beauty of the marsh and the cypress and tupelo gum forests.
