Re: ship island for memorial day from New Orleans

That's my old stomping ground. Kept my boat in Longboat marina. Made many sails out to Ship Island.

I say good plan for 3 day weekend, go for it!

Zee, didn't know you are familiar with the area.

Re: ship island for memorial day from New Orleans

What happened to Cat Island, Zee? Still some public areas for camping there.

Horn Island to the east of Ship is a good place to stop.

Catamaran regatta to East Ship going on Saturday.

Re: ship island for memorial day from New Orleans

the traditional anchorage for Cat Island is Smugglers' Cove, which has silted in and what silted into the cove was the spit that protected it.

Very, very shoal draft boats can still go in there. There is a hole with a bit of depth, which is usually occupied

Good luck radioing the Rigolets bridge regardless of gender. try, but your best option is calling (228) 591-0139 feel free to share (number is not posted on the bridge)
