A Lighthouse of gulfCoast

MS 3 Ship Island

rebuilt in 2000, destroyed again by Katrina in 2005

Ship Island Excursions offers ferry service from Gulfport, Mississippi to Ship Island, where the lighthouse and replica formerly stood. Ferry service is available March through October, weather permitting. The ferry dock is located on the Mississippi Sound side of the island near Fort Massachusetts. The site of the lighthouse can be reached by walking 0.3 miles east along the beach from the dock. Tours of the fort are offered by the park service, and a boardwalk leads 1/3 of a mile across the island to the Gulf, where a swimming beach is located. #
