July 4th Schooner Sail

Step aboard an oyster schooner replica with the Biloxi Schooners for its Fourth of July sail. Call the Maritime & Seafood Industry Museum in advance to purchase your tickets, as this holiday event tends to sell out quickly. The best part? You can bring your own food and drinks, making it a personalized and enjoyable experience for everyone on board.
