I had a great time on this excursion, but it was a HOT day! The ferry ride to this island was a great way to see dolphins and other wildlife. The sand itself was beautiful and white, but the water was the typical brown Mississippi color. I didn't spend much time in the water. Umbrellas and chairs are available for rent. We brought our own chairs, but did decide to rent an umbrella. There is no shade on the island and I burn very easily! There was a snack bar on the island, but we didn't visit it because we brought a cooler full of drinks and snacks for the day. On the way back to the ferry we did a quick walk through of the fort. It was a great day and I would definitely go back if I was given the chance!
