Ocean Water

Ocean Water

Hi! We have been looking at Ocean Springs for a vacation and I was wondering how is the water? Is it clear? I have two little ones and really don't want them swimming in water where I can't see what is around them.

Any comments would be appreciated.

In Ocean Springs, the Mississippi Sound (a semi-protected area of the Gulf of Mexico, is fed by silt and sand-laden rivers and streams, so not really all that clear.

Deer and Horn Islands, just offshore, shields the area from the Gulf, and is formed by the silt and sand.

Now, just to the east, Graveline Bayou is spring fed, and much more clear, hence the name "Ocean Springs."
