Port of Pascagoula

 

Welcome to the Port of Pascagoula, a full-service deep water port with modern facilities for handling cargo.  Located in the state of Mississippi on the northern Gulf of Mexico, the Port of Pascagoula has two harbors, the Pascagoula River Harbor (West)  and the Bayou Casotte Harbor (East).  The Port’s two harbors are a combination of public and private terminals moving in excess of 35 million tons of cargo through the channels annually.

America is the first ship in the U.S. Navy’s new class of amphibious assault ships. The vessel is 844 feet long and 106 feet wide. Built by Ingalls Shipbuilding, America was delivered to the U.S. Navy on April 10, 2014.
