Petit Bois/Dauphin Island Pass and Perdido Pass

I will be taking a litle trip from Pascagoula to Pensacola. i am planing to pass into the Gulf between Dauphin Island and Petit Bois island. I will be anchoring in Pelican Bay on the eastern end of Dauphin Island for a night.

I will resume my trip to Perdido Key the next day. I will traverse the Perdido Pass to spend Thanksgiving on Perdido Key.

I was hoping some peolpe with local knowledge might offer some tips or cautions about these two passes (or anything along the route). I usually spend my time on the western side of the Mississippi sound, so this side is new to me!

The charts don't show anythng unusual, but hey, ya never know!

I finally talked the wife into this trip - if it goes well, she may let me do Gulfport to Tampa next year... (hey, I can dream, right? who wants to go with me?)

thanks,
JAY
