Let's go fishing! Most of our activities take place on or near the Mississippi Barrier Islands. We specialize in trips to the islands where we observe playful dolphins. Fun with the dolphins include very close encounters with these incredibly friendly mamals. Dolphins actually perform and swim near our boat. It is amazing how they seem to change when children are involved. View osprey, terns, black skimmers, pelicans, bald eagles, racoons. We also rent kayaks, do camping drop offs to the islands, near shore and offshore fishing trips, and sunset cruises. We can even take you to the casinos, or most any place with a dock.
