“A day of fun”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 4, 2013

Loved it... Make sure you bring your favorite food and drinks and sunscreen. There's a nude beach area if you walk east. We had a great time.

“Nice Family Day!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 27, 2013 via mobile

Hour long ride, but worth the trip. Its great for a family day or if you just need a day away. The island has history and all that you need readily available. We always bring our own cooler, but it's nice to have things available. We love driving to FL, but this is nice when you don't want to spend that extra time in the car.

“Great spot but didn't know about the beach chair/umbrella rentals”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 16, 2012

It was a great trip and a beautiful beach. t was our first trip there and weren't aware of what was available on the island till we got there. The beach chair/umbrella rental charge was higher than we expected for only a 2 hour visit. If we had known we would have brought our own chairs and umbrella, but I suppose that is why they don't include this information anywhere we looked before we left on this trip. The tour was a good time overall.

“So much fun!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 5, 2012

Ship Island is so fun! I never get tired of going!! You should definitely walk to the south side of the island. The water is better & that's where all the chairs & umbrellas for rent are. Make sure to wear shoes... it gets really hot! Bring a rolling cooler, too.. it's a long walk with a big cooler to carry! Such a good time, every time!
