Biloxi Schooners, BILOXI, MS
Sail the Mississippi Sound and then the lovely waters of the Gulf of Mexico aboard one of these dramatic replica schooners, or just enjoy looking at them from terra firma. Oyster schooners, known as "white-winged queens," were common sights on these waters throughout the 18th and 19th centuries, until marine engines were introduced. They feature two graceful masts that reach heights of 65 feet. Special 2-hour trips are available, offering great scenery as well as information about Biloxi's colorful maritime history.
