Dauphin Island Pier

The 850-foot Dauphin Island "Fishing" Pier is now on dry land due to the recent migration of Pelican Island joining the public beach shoreline. (A similar situation occurred in the 1600s and created Pelican Bay, which was one of the reasons the French first settled here.) The Pier structure has now been modified to provide sightseeing and picnicking. Steps at the end of the Pier give quick access to the Gulf shoreline. There is no fee, but it is closed each day at sundown.
