See All There is to

There's a lot more to soak up at Gulf Shores than the sun.and sea  For a chance to gain an indepth knowledge of the natural wonders of the area, The Estuarium, a public aquarium at the Dauphin Island Sea Lab, offers interactive exhibits that unlock the four ecosystems of the Mobile Estuary system. A short drive away on Dauphin Island via State Road 182 and the Mobile Bay Ferry, the Estuarium has, in the words of a local real estate sage, "all there is to sea!"

The ecosystems are the habitant of local marine and plant life: 

The Delta

The Mobile-Tensaw Delta is one the most important bottomland hardwood habitats in our country. The enormous fresh water marshes & forests of this delta are responsible for many of the Bay ecosystems and protect the urban areas from terrible flooding.

Mobile Bay

Mobile Bay is a major biological nursery area of the northern Gulf of Mexico. During some part of their lifecycle, up to 95% of the commercial seafood of the Gulf of Mexico depend on the estuaries for food and protection.

Barrier Islands

Barrier Islands are an important part of the coastal system providing natural protection from hurricanes and providing fun recreational areas.

Gulf of Mexico

The Gulf of Mexico is a very important resource to our nation. The Gulf of Mexico produces most of our countries natural gas and domestic oil. The Mobile Bay gas reserves and second only to the north slope of Alaska in volume and value.

The Estuarium is also home to the Living Marsh Boardwalk, an outdoor exhibit which features interpretive signage with details about the natural history of the Alabama marshes, geography of the area and the evolution of barrier islands.
