WELCOME TO DAUPHIN ISLAND

Come and enjoy our little piece of paradise, dip your toes in the Gulf of Mexico waters, get sand between your toes and just RELAX. As Dauphin Island residents like to say, we're living on "Island Time," and once you experience the serenity of an afternoon sunset, or watch sea  birds performing aerial acrobatics, you will understand why.


Come stroll our beaches, charter a boat to fish or to cruise, dine in our special eateries and visit gift shops and boutiques for that special item or gift.

In our busy world we plan for tomorrow, but can't live it until it arrives. We often spend time regretting the past and worrying about the future and fail to enjoy today.


We invite you to come enjoy Dauphin Island.
TODAY.

ABOUT THE CHAMBER

The purpose of the Dauphin Island Chamber of Commerce is to serve and promote interests of the commercial community of Dauphin Island.

The DICoC actively solicits input from its members on issues that  affect their ability to conduct business on the Island. The DICoC also promotes events on the Island throughout the year to attract more visitors to the Island.  This increase in visitation acts to increase the opportunity  for local business members to conduct their commercial activities.
