It was a nice relaxing hour boat ride to the island, but the beach was not any better than the beaches in the cities. We did rent an umbrella and 2 chairs for $25, but will not the next time as there is shade with picnic tables if you want to get out of the sun. The prices at the... More

Ship Island was a great getaway from the tourist town and attractions that Biloxi has to offer. Before even stepping foot onto the beach, my group and I saw dolphins, turtles, stingrays, and crabs in the water as we exited the ferry. We ended up hiking about a mile down the beach, to a more secluded area which took us... More

We visited Biloxi for vacation and to visit friends. The ride over to Ship Island was very fun, but bring your sunscreen! We both got sun burnt, even using sun block. The ride is about 50 minutes and we saw tons of Dolphins along the way. The beach is beautiful, but be careful while swimming. There was a young boy... More

The boat trip was great across the Gulf but be prepared to walk when boat docks on Ship Island. You will have quite a walk to other side of island to swim. There is a great boardwalk & you can bring small cooler. There is a snack bar with food & such, but you must pay to rent chair &... More

In extremely hot temperatures, the ferry ride provided a nice breeze. We did see some dolphins and that was a fun experience. My husband and I enjoyed learning about Fort Massachusetts from the park ranger. This was some history neither of us were familiar with and we thought the fort was pretty cool. We walked over to the snack bar... More

Loved it! Saw the dolphins playing on the ride over... Beaches were nice, snack bar reasonable, being that its on an island. If you plan on leaving on the 5 o'clock ferry, leave early from the beach, like around 3:45, quite a walk back. Board the captain Pete!!! Air conditioning, cushioned seats, refreshments, the works! They leave earlier, leaving everyone... More

This day trip was the highlight of our trip to Biloxi. Lovely white sand beaches and plenty to see and do. The friendly crew made it even better.
