Famous Biloxi Schooners

For a truly unique way of enjoying the Mississippi Gulf Coast, step on board an authentic replica of a Biloxi oyster schooner.

The city of Biloxi traces its beginnings to the arrival of the French in 1699. The City takes great pride in letting visitors feast on its 300 year history. Truly a museum without walls, every inch of Biloxi contains elements of its proud heritage and none greater than the majesty of the White Wings.
