Our maritime-themed exhibits are housed on eight decks of a life-sized replica of a container ship, so come ready to walk and browse and take your time. Don't forget to enjoy the incredible views of beautiful Mobile River and the busy Port of Mobile.
Everything you need to plan your visit should be covered on our website. If you have questions, however, please don't hesitate to call Visitor Services at 251.206-1046.
Thank you for visiting GulfQuest! We look forward to sharing our adventure with you.
BATTEN DOWN THE HATCHES
We "batten down the hatches" to prepare for trouble. Hatches are openings in a ship's deck, through which cargo is loaded. Hatch covers were covered with canvas and heavy wooden strips called "battens" to prevent flooding during a storm.
