(June 24, 2020) --

Visitors meet the turtles in the Mobile Delta exhibit on reopening day, June 2, 2020.

The Aquarium at the Dauphin Island Sea Lab is once again open 7 days a week to visitors. Hours are still limited to tours between 12 p.m. and 4 p.m. each day.  The Aquarium initially reopened on June 2 with hours on Tuesday through Saturday. Now, visitors can pick a time to visit on Sunday and Monday.

In accordance with CDC and Alabama Public Health Department guidelines, we've adjusted our operations and increased our cleaning protocols to keep you safe during this time.

Before visiting, visitors will need to purchase an admission ticket online at disl.edu. The tickets will be sold at 10-minute intervals to allow for smaller groups and proper social distancing during your visit.

All visitors will be required to wear a mask or face covering when touring the aquarium.

Some exhibits will be 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. Our staff will also increase the cleaning of the facility throughout the day. 

We appreciate your understanding and cooperation with our new protocols as with the goal of making your visit safe and memorable.
