“Sail on a Schooner!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 27, 2011

My husband and I took the "walk on" sailing trip on the Biloxi Schooners at the Maritime & Seafood Museum last fall. This was my first sail boat ride and now I'm hooked! It was an absolutely wonderful and very reasonably priced two hour "sunset" sail. The crew was very friendly and courteous and even allowed passengers to pilot the boat [for a few minutes]! If you have never sailed before this is a must do trip, kinda makes you want to go out and buy a sailboat of your own! Will take this trip again and again.

“Scnooners: Could be worth it, but aren't”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed October 22, 2009

The captain warned us that it was too windy to sail, but I didn't get off on the hope that maybe we would sail. We never did sail. Instead we puttered up and down the Mississippi Sound for 2.5 hours. The captain and crew would have stood in the back of the boat talking between themselves and checking their text messages the whole time if a librarian from Seattle had not struck up a conversation with them.

Under her questioning the captain described Katrina, pointing out the continued signs of destruction on the shore. He also described his clean up efforts for the Maritime Museum. He also talked about the barrier islands. The captain has the background, knowledge and skill to give a fascinating tour of the harbor if he is prompted to do so. If you do go ask the Captain about Katrina, sailing the Mississippi Sound, the barrier islands, schooners, etc.
