The ferry ride is nice and a straight shot out from Biloxi, there's some snacks and drinks on board. The island itself is very beautiful, with a long boardwalk to get you from one side of the island to the other. The beach wasn't crowded...More

This is the second time I have been to Ship Island and I will go back again. The ride out is a little slow, I wanted the ship to go faster :) But we had a wonderful time.

One of the reasons I appreciate this island is that it's a place secluded from the hustle and bustle of the mainland. The ferry ride is about an hour long but the boats are very nice. One of them, the Capt. Pete, even has a...More

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.

Wonderful day trip! We took the Ship Island Excursion and had friendly service. We rented chairs and an umbrella and felt like we were at a resort! Moderate exercise because of the walk to the beach, but it was worth it.

The ferry ride out there is about 1 hour. Saw some dolphins. When you get there it is quite a hike to the other side where the beautiful beach is. There is a cool fort to see on the way. If you want protection from...More

The boat ride was fun, didn't really feel like it takes you an hour to get to the island!! The water on the gulf side of the island is clearer than back in Biloxi but not clear enough to see your feet! They have bathrooms,...More

Ship Island has no homes to rent. Besides, everyone must leave by the last evening ferry. Biloxi, Mississippi is where you should be looking for to Rent.

It is a bit of a walk so if you have stuff or kids with you, a wagon or wheels. The fort is right there near the dock and farther down are restrooms, showers and tables to rest at before you begin the long walk to the other... More
