Ship Island is a wonderful place to really chill out on the Mississippi Gulf Coast. The water here is just beautiful and we always see Sting Rays in their natural habitat, Crocks and other sea life. Seldom do we run across Jelly Fish which can...More

If you ever have been to Biloxi, you know that most of the beach is a sound, which means the water is stagnent and no waves, ship island is not! There are waves, feels just like a vacation beach with the exception of the hotels,...More

The ride to and from the island was enjoyable and pleasant. We saw dolphins on the trip out. The weather was perfect, although this is not something that can be controlled. The island is clean and the water is blue. The prices are a bit...More

Was second visit & still loved it. Saw LOTS of dolphins on ferry trip over. They also hung around dock area all day. Bird watching, shell hunting, great beach for walking-wonderful way to spend day with my family!

Great place to just go and get away!! Take plenty of Sun screen and just enjoy the view, walking on the beach or swimming. We had a great time on the island.

Always a great day trip when you go to Ship Island. Water was not a clear this time but you never know. Kids had a great time. Bring your cooler--(on wheels) because it's a long walk from boat to beach. All in all----FUN day.

Great day at the beach. Wear your swim suit. Travel very light. Take small cooler on WHEELS. Must take or rent beach umbrella. Be prepared for the BEACH - no shade except picnic area.

Such a peaceful ride to the island and we saw dolphins which I thought was really cool. Playing in the ocean and just hanging out on the beautiful beach was great.

Nice to have something to grab on the beach. Burgers hotdogs were good an reasonably priced. It is also a little gift type shop to get a few things

I don't think it would be a good or worthwhile trip for her. Even if they allowed her to stay on the ferry while others got off,it might be a boring time to just sit and wait for the return trip. Advice from other travelers... More
