Shrimping Trip Marine Adventure Cruise
Enjoy a 70 Minute Living Marine Adventure Cruise aboard the "Sailfish." See how, why & what is caught on a real shrimp trip!

Upon leaving the harbor, the crew will drop the trawl shrimping net and explain all of the parts and how they operate. Once the net is set, your guide will give you the detailed seafood and maritime history. After 20 minutes, the net is pulled up and dropped on the back deck. Your guide will sort through the catch and explain each species caught and what their purpose is in the Gulf of Mexico. Then some will be placed in an aquarium aboard the boat so that you may get a closer look at them and see them actually swimming as they do in their environment. As for the remaining catch...if your are brave enough, you can feed the pelicans and seagulls who follow the boat each and every day looking for their next meal!

The Sailfish is a double deck boat allowing a view from the top in the open air. Those who prefer may also view the action from the enclosed bottom deck, with windows all around, away from the sun.

NOTE: The boat will not sail if winds are in excess of 20 mph or during rain or inclement weather.

New Orleans Sightseeing Tour
The New Orleans City Tour is a thorough and fascinating introduction to the endless variety of sights found in America's most European city.

Begin with a glimpse of the spectacular Superdome. Then, pass the fringes of the French Quarter before heading down historic Esplanade Avenue where you will see the mansions of Creole merchants nestled among 100-year-old oak trees.

Continue on to St. Louis III Cemetery, often called "the city of the dead" because of its aboveground tombs. See the New Orleans Museum of Art, then proceed towards Lake Pontchartrain and then go through the old town of Carrollton to St. Charles Avenue, following the streetcar route where you'll see Tulane and Loyola Universities, Audubon Park and beautifully restored mansions.

Biloxi Historical Sightseeing Tour
