Dauphin Island is a barrier island on the gulf coast of Alabama. It remains a quiet community populated by fishermen, locals, teachers and students at the Sea Lab facility, without the plastic gristle of so many near-by tourist spots. People do visit the town and old Fort Gains on the east end of the edge of Mobile Bay.
