Undeniably, south Florida is the Mecca of PWC’ing; abundant waters on the inside and out, well over a thousand miles of trails, and a riding season that last all year long. Unfortunately, for some enthusiasts, location, travel time, and the expense it takes to get there can be a trip-killer. For those not so inclined to travel quite that far, a great alternative are the waters along the northern rim of the Gulf of Mexico. And, at the center of it all, on Mississippi’s “Gold Coast” lies Biloxi.

In the early 1990′s, when coastal Mississippi saw gambling legalized, the city of Biloxi had no trouble attracting major players of the gaming industry. Even after the destruction left in the wake of hurricane Katrina, the casinos came back in full force adding elaborate hotels with a full compliment of amenities. Of these amenities, important to those of our kind are oversized parking facilities (ie – your truck and trailer), proximity to water, and in some cases, the ability to dock where you’re staying.

Over the last three years, I’ve dragged my pair of Sea-Doo RXTs back and forth along the rim of the Gulf from Southeast Louisiana to the Florida panhandle. Each trip resulted in tracking navigable waters from the swamps to the gulf, making notes, and taking pictures – all the while shredding water with family, friends, and other enthusiasts. Having just completed my most recent excursion – thereby scratching off the final trail from my list – I’ve compiled a list of five “must do” rides. While the trails are not ranked – each is certainly worth the effort – they are listed from west to east. Also noted with the customary attributes will be the approximate travel distance and time from Biloxi. So, without any further ado, let ride!
