Ship Island is part of the National Seashore and is about 12 miles off shore. Unlike Florida and Alabama, we have not built bridges to our islands, keeping them wild and windswept, which is awesome. If you know someone with a boat or charter one,...More

The water was warm and clear. We watched the sea life go by. The board walk to the other side was well cared for. Don’t forget to take a tour of the fort it’s free and worth the trip alone.

If you visit Biloxi take a day trip to Ship Island. Visit with Captain Pete - grandson of the original owner. The island is HOT! If you like snorkeling find out about visibility before going. If it’s been windy you won’t see anything! The dock...More
