The Dauphin Island Marina is a full service marina located beside the Gulf of Mexico Intracoastal Waterway. Since it is inside a sheltered bay and it operates from 6 am to 6 pm, traveling yachtsmen and fishermen can feel safe and secure docking here. It is a convenient overnight stopover for those travelling either from the west or the east by sea, and is also a good sight for those who want to see the boats entering and exiting the island while savoring Mobile Bay.

The marina features wet slips, dry storage, a fuel dock (diesel, gasoline, and oil), a ships’ store, loads of fishing bait and tackle (complete with advice), chartered boat fleets for professional deep sea fishing, bottom fishing and sports fishing trips, fishing tournaments, special tours, engine repair, towing and assistance, and yacht brokerage. Large and small groups of not more than 44 passengers can be accommodated at once.

Feeling your stomach growling while experiencing the marina? No problem! You can grab some bites at any of the food establishments in Dauphin Island: the Lighthouse Bakery, the Island Rainbow, Barnacle Bill’s Marina Grill, the Oar House Restaurant, Skinners Seafood, the Common Loon, Flamingo Fae’s Beachside Grill and Tiki Bar, and Street’s Island Grill. Many of those establishments are located along Bienville Boulevard, the island’s main thoroughfare. The marina is also situated near other attractions and services on the island.
