Port Eads is located at the southern tip of the Mississippi river, also known as the South Pass in Plaquemines Parish. It is the southernmost point in Louisiana. The region was made famous by Captain James Buchanan Eads who developed a system of wooden jetties preventing the mouth of the river from silting up. This innovation opened up the Mississippi River for commercial trade doubling the amount of goods reaching New Orleans. Port Eads was completely devastated by Hurricane Katrina, all that remained of the original structure was the lighthouse. Due to the economic importance to Louisiana, Plaquemines Parish enlisted assistance from the Federal Emergency Management Agency to rebuild the dock, both North and South camps, and a state of the art marina. In April 2014 the High Adventure Company was selected to operate and manage the marina and fishing camps.


The newly constructed marina at Port Eads offers slips for 60 boats, available for annual lease or transient mooring. In addition to the slips the marina has over 17,500 square feet of dock space with a large fish scale located on the main dock. Diesel, gasoline, and ice will be available year round for South Pass customers.

Start where the road ends south of New Orleans in Venice, Louisiana and travel with us another 20 miles downriver to the mouth of the mighty Mississippi itself. Stay with us at the historic Port Eads Marina and Lodges. The newly constructed, state of the art facilities have been built on the original location, including two expanded and updated lodges. The Port Eads lodges offer anglers the ability to fish the blue waters of the Gulf of Mexico without making the long, sometimes dangerous runs back to marinas up the Mississippi or the various marinas located on the FL, AL, MS and TX coasts. Each lodge, known respectively, as the “North” and “South” camps, can host up to 24 anglers with all the comforts of home, including: private baths in each bedroom, large screen satellite TV’s, fully stocked bar, and a full service restaurant. Space is available on a per bed or room basis. In addition to the lodges, anglers can relax around the tiki bar located on 17,500 square feet of new construction dock with a spectacular view of the South Pass. Short-term and transient slip rentals are available for our guests on a first come, first served basis.

Per bed night: $125
Exclusive room per night: $625

Located inside the large lodge known as the North Camp, our restaurant is suitably named Finley’s. Named after High Adventure Company’s executive chef Sean Finley, our restaurant incorporates the best local and regional ingredients into a dining experience not to be missed. You would be impressed with our food if we were located in New Orleans, not to mention 20 miles out in the marsh! In addition to our restaurant, catering is available for boats heading for a day on the water, and trust us, these are not your typical “marina box lunches”. Only the best will do if it has Finley’s name on it! Starting mid-summer 2014 gourmet dinners, paired with fine wines, will be available served on your boat while moored at Port Eads.


The waters at the mouth of the Mississippi River have been often described as the most fertile waters in the world. The combination of these nutrient rich waters, in close proximity to the continental shelf, sets the stage for one of the planet’s most incredible fisheries. Port Eads anglers will have the options to fish the nearby blue water in search of the giant tuna and marlin that call the Gulf home; visit the offshore rigs, bottom fishing for some of the most desirable species for the table; or head into the adjacent marshes for the tackle busting giant redfish and speckled trout that first made this fishery famous.
