I took the 9am ferry ride from Gulfport to Ship Island yesterday which I thought was the first excursion. Since I traveled alone I was the first person off the boat and first to reach the beach from the boat. I was surprised to find about 100 people already camped out in the chairs and umbrellas. I've searched online for other ferry schedules but only find the one from the Gulport Marina. How are these other people getting there so early?
