Dauphin Island Estuarium is llocated on the east shore of Dauphin Island and is within walking distance of the Mobile Ferry dock. The Dauphin Island Sea Lab or Estuarium is a great place to visit and has many interactive exhibits both in and out-of-doors that can give you a better sense of the aquatic and plant life of the area. The museum focus on the four habitats found in and around Mobile Bay. Each habitat has specific exhibits highlighting the things that you will find in that habitat as well as going over some man-made threats to their existence. 

The estuarium was set up as an educational facility by the State Legislature back in 1971. Its mission is to educate young and old about the major habitats of the Alabama Gulf Coast. The Sea Lab also hosts a number of educational and research programs with the 22 colleges and universities in Alabama.

Photos are allowed in all areas of the estuarium except where the octopi are held.
