Our Story

My name is Eddie Jordan. I moved to the Lower Alabama, or “LA” as it is sometimes referred to, in 1978. Soon after I chose to be a professional mariner. I began my seagoing career on the shrimp boats of Bon Secour, AL. From there I earned my first Coast Guard Captain’s License in 1982. Since then I’ve served as Captain aboard various types of vessels ranging from Tug Boats to Ships worldwide.

I’ve lived and played with my family and friends boating on the coastal waterways of Alabama, Mississippi and the Florida Panhandle for most of my adult life. It is something I truly love and want to share with others. With a little nudging from my wife Marcia, I’ve decided to do just that. So I’m offering you a chance to share my waterworld by offering private boat cruises.

Our Mission

Eddie’s Paradise Island Cruises is here to help you plan what you want to do and where you want to go.

Examples of destinations include the ruins at Ft McCree, Ft Pickens, Johnson Beach, Pirates Cove, The Wharf, Mobile Bay, Lulu’s, various rivers and bays, Flora-Bama Yacht Club. There is a 4hr minimum to reserve the boat, but your adventure can be extended up to 8 hours. We may accept less than 4hrs on a case by case basis.

We provide all USCG required safety equipment including lifejackets, anything else, you need to bring with you. You’re welcome to bring along food and drinks, or if you so choose you can dine at any of the many dockside restaurants. Please check out the photo albums and posts to get a better idea of what’s possible. Remember, It’s Your Day, Your Way!
