We spent the day at Ship Island & loved it! Prices are very reasonable & worth every penny. It's the perfect place for picnicking & relaxing with beautiful beaches, clear water, & breathtaking views.

The ferry ride was great, right on time and very nice people helping getting everyone on and off the ferry. The price was reasonable, too. The one hour one-way trip was smooth. We enjoyed seeing the fort and loved the beach. We walked to the...More
