Great day excursion from Gulfport for a family with kids! The boat was clean, left on time, and had an air conditioned inside seating area with a snack bar. The sea was calm on the way out, and we saw several dolphins, some of which the crew members pointed out for everyone to see. There was a National Park Service ranger led tour of the fort right after we arrived - it was the only one, so it was too crowded to hear well, unfortunately. The kids loved being able to explore the fort on their own, though. They don’t have any Junior Ranger badges, because their ranger station was destroyed in the last hurricane. We brought a picnic lunch; there’s a nice covered picnic area on the boardwalk to the beach with clean bathrooms and soap. The kids had fun playing in the sand and water and collecting broken shell pieces. I was surprised by how much trash was on the beach... You can rent umbrellas and chairs, and there’s a snack bar near the beach.

Loved getting my ticket online. The boat loading and unloading was seemless and the trips to and from were very smooth. Being able to rent a chair and umbrella for only $20 made the trip less of a hassle and the restroom facilities were relatively clean and neat. Beautiful day and all the staff were very helpful and friendly!

This is a great outing for the whole family. You can fish off the dock or all over the island. There is a tour of the fort on site. There are snack stands on the other side of the island and on the boat. There are covered areas to get out of the sun and wash stations. The bathrooms are clean.
