Ship Island Excursions, Biloxi

4.6
#2 of 13 in Tours in Biloxi
The collective name for two barrier islands off the Gulf Coast of Mississippi, Ship Island Excursions is home to an expanse of beach and a historic fort. East Ship Island is only accessible by personal watercraft, whereas an excursion boat travels regularly to West Ship Island, home of Fort Massachusetts. Collect shells, swim, or explore the 19th-century fort. Make sure to watch for dolphins on the horizon; they are often spotted here. If you go swimming or paddling, you should be careful of jellyfish and stingrays. Shade is limited here, so come prepared (you can bring umbrellas, lightweight folding chairs, and small coolers) or plan to rent an umbrella and beach chairs on the island. There is food service available on site. Put Ship Island Excursions into our Biloxi trip itinerary planner and find out what's close by, where to stay, and where to head next.

  • Not really worth the money or the ride. It’s a novelty and alright at best. For me personally it’s no different than most of the beaches around that area, the beach is still gross and the water is still dirty. I was hoping for something nicer and more appealing. The boat ride is pretty long. Crabs were out and that was cool to see.
  • I booked this tour as an anniversary gift. I must say we both really enjoyed it. The crew was SUPER nice and friendly. The boat was clean. And we did see dolphins!! I would definitely book again.
