The coast has several fun options to take a boat cruise and enjoy the beautiful water and local scenery. The Betsy Ann Riverboat, Twisted Tiki, Biloxi Schooner, and Ship Island Excursion all have rides designed to be family-friendly, or for those 21 and up, there are different options to take a “booze cruise.” The Betsy Ann Riverboat is a stern wheel paddle boat with an upper deck and a closed cabin that offers public and private sightseeing, historical and ecological trips along the coast. The Twisted Tiki is a 50-foot tiki-themed pontoon boat that travels out to the MS Sound or Biloxi Back Bay depending on weather conditions. The Biloxi Schooner is a 65-inch, two-masted replica of the original oyster schooners that once sailed on the Coast from the late 1800s. The Ship Island Ferry takes guests from Gulfport to Ship Island and is part of the Gulf Islands National Seashore administered by the National Park Service.
