Hopeful Cruising Notes – Cat Island (Mississippi Sound) to New Orleans

It’s awfully good to hear from services are at last returning to this portion of the Northern Gulf coast, devastated almost three years ago by Hurricane Katrina!

Subject: N.O. West End to Cat Island
Cruising News: I recently returned from a round trip from New Orleans West End to Smuggler’s Cove at Cat Island.  I am happy to report that services are starting to return along the area, and we encountered prompt bridge openings at Highway 11 (Channel 13) and open RR bridges at Highway 11 (Channel 13) and the Rigolets RR (Channel 16).  Oak Harbor in Slidell (985-641-1044) has transient slips ($1.15/ft) with clean restrooms and showers.  There is fuel Monday through Saturday at Seabrook Marine on the Industrial Canal and every day (5 a.m. to 5 p.m.) at the Rigolets Marina on Geoghegan Canal across from Fort Pike.  The approach to Cat Island from the west is little changed since the storm, as far as I could tell.  Although the south eastern spit at Smuggler’s cove is now cut in half, the anchorage depth on the southern half was about 8-9 feet and off the mid-northern half was about 4-5 feet.   The beaches were also nice and the trout fishing great.
Thanks for the great site.
