(March 15, 2021) --

The aquarium at the Dauphin Island Sea Lab will expand business hours on April 1, 2021 to 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Tickets are also timed to allow for proper social distancing in accordance with CDC and Alabama Public Health Department guidelines.

The tickets are sold in 10-minute intervals. Advanced online ticket purchases are highly encouraged for groups or families to enter together at one time. No exceptions will be made. Walk-up tickets will be available in limited quantities and are not guaranteed.

The state of Alabama remains under the Safer at Home order signed by Governor Kay Ivey which requires all visitors to wear a mask or face covering when touring the aquarium. Some aquarium exhibits also remain adjusted to allow for minimal contact during your visit.

Visitors are also asked to continue to respect the social distancing and handwashing procedures recommended by the CDC. 

We appreciate your understanding and cooperation with our updated policy.
