I would not recommend Blue Dolphin. There are ZERO amenities, the docks are fixed and rather shabby, and this time of year the water blows out.

probably around mid to late Feb if the weather cooperates. We are going to stay in Gulfport/Long Beach area for about a month. Winter is the worse time to travel - crappy weather and short days.

I agree. We have stayed in Blue Dolphin before and only because of the covered slips. If not for covered slips, it has nothing else to offer.
Not too many covered slips in the area. Anyway, I was just informed that Seabrook Marina now has covered slips. I will look into that tomorrow.

Seabrook Marina does have covered slips, fairly new. But no security.

If you're a member of a Gulf yacht club you might be able to stay at Lakewood. I could check.

We'll be finishing up preparations to leave about then. Give a shout when you're close. We'll hook up.
