Ferry out to Ship Island, home to the best beaches in Mississippi.

For the best beaches in Mississippi, visit Ship Island, located 12 miles off the shore from Gulfport, Mississippi, in the Gulf of Mexico.  The only way to reach the Island is by ferry provided by Ship Island Excursions, and it is worth the trip!

Enjoy the beautiful sandy beaches while soaking up the sun, collecting sea shells and swimming in the ocean.  Keep an eye out for dolphin pods, commonly spotted from the island.  For those avid fishers out there, speckled trout are abundant in the various grass beds surrounding the island.  Flounder, red drum and sheepshead can also be caught from the island.

Not only is Ship Island an exclusive recreational spot, it is filled with a rich history.  The Park Service controls and maintains the island and offers informative tours of Fort Massachusetts.  The United States built the fort after the War of 1812 to protect its borders.  Ship Island was a perfect location for a fort because of its proximity to shipping in and out of the Gulf.  The military continued to use the fort until 1903.  The Island also exchanged hands from the Confederacy to Union forces during the Civil War.

For visitors’ convenience, the island offers restrooms, showers, beach and umbrella rentals and a food shack.  Wear nice shoes because there is a boardwalk a third of a mile long that can get extremely hot during the summer months from the boat dock to the South Beach, the most preferred beach on the island.
