“The pride of Biloxi”

Biloxi Shrimping Trip Welcome to the Mississippi Gulf Coast!Voted # 1 Attraction in Mississippi The pride and heritage of Biloxi comes alive aboard this unique and interesting cruise. The Biloxi Shrimping Trip exposes our guests to the spectacular world of sea life - caught on a real shrimping expedition “How many legs does a shrimp have?” How does one catch a shrimp? You might wonder? Climb aboard the Sailfish and take a 70 minute peek into how the journey begins for a shrimp and how it ends up on your plate.  The Biloxi Shrimping Trip has been entertaining visitors worldwide since 1955. The crew will entertain and educate while dropping a 16 foot trawl and dragging the bottom of the Mississippi Sound for all of the delicacies she has to offer. Upon leaving the harbor, the shrimping net is set out with full details of how and what makes the net spread and operate correctly. The net will catch any and all sea creatures in its path along with the shrimp. The varieties range from Blue Crabs, Flounder, Stingray, Oysterfish, Squid, Pufferfish and numerous other species of local marine life. The entire catch will be identified and presented for your inspection by the Captain. This 70-minute Living Marine Adventure Cruise is navigated in the calm, protected waters between Deer island and the Biloxi shoreline for your comfort.

The trip and the crew were great. If I could rate those on the tour with us, I would say one star! People keep your kids under control and be mindful of everyone trying to hear and see what's going on. Nothing ruins a trip more for other people and the crew, then kids who do g listen and the parents who encourage that bad behavior!! Kuddos to Mike and Dave who asked nicely more than once for those families to be mindful, all while keeping their cool!!! Thanks for making the best of the situation!! You guys are awesome.

This was a great family adventure. Staff was extremely friendly and knowledgeable of the shrimping industry, the local ecology and Biloxi history. Got to handle some ocean sea creatures. Overall, a super time, however, I would say it is a bit expensive for the duration of the trip.
