It's summertime and there is no better outing than going to the Estuarium at Dauphin Island.  Once the day has heated up you can head to the Estuarium for lots of fun, education  and entertainment in the AC. 

 The Estuarium is an exciting educational public aquarium highlighting the four key habitats of coastal Alabama: the Mobile Tensaw River Delta, Mobile Bay, the Barrier Islands and the Northern Gulf of Mexico. It includes the 10,000 square foot Exhibit Hall, a 7,000 gallon sting ray touch pool, and the Living Marsh Boardwalk. This facility has 31 aquariums totaling over 30,000 gallons with more than 100 species on display. The Estuarium showcases the plants, animals, and other natural resources found in the Estuary and its surrounding marine habitats.

  You can  enjoy unlimited visits for you and your entire family for a whole year to the Estuarium by joining the Friends of the Sea Lab!!  Click on the Friends tab to learn more.
