Biloxi Schooners

SchoonerThe Biloxi Schooners are authentic replicas of Biloxi oyster schooners.  These “White Winged Queens” once sailed the Coast from the late 1800’s to the early 1900’s; however, the introduction of marine engines and the changes in oyster harvesting laws caused these beautiful crafts to disappear.


The Maritime & Seafood Industry Museum has recaptured a piece of history in their two famous schooners, the “Glenn L. Swetman” and the “Mike Sekul.”   Tickets are available at the Maritime & Seafood Industry Museum for day-sailing or charter.  The vessels can accommodate weddings, dockside parties, receptions, birthdays, or other special events. Special 2 hour educational trips are offered to school groups at special rates.
