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.
Permit Parking on designated streets are only allowed for residents (& their guests) or for renters (with proper displayed signage).

This year's Gala showcases the best of Alabama Gulf seafood traditions with a nostalgic evening celebrating the coastal chic of the Isle Dauphine Club in its heyday!
Chef Philip Patronas is planning an elegant four course sit-down dinner with delicious selections.
Gala proceeds will be used to make modifications to DIHAC's Art Studio building to make it accessible, including construction of an accessibility ramp. This a threshold project for DIHAC to move forward with its art classes for adults with disabilities and senior citizens through the "Dauphin Island Art for All" collaborative with Mobile Arts Council, Full Life Ahead Foundation, and other entities.
