Question NOLA - how long to the Gulf?

How long does it take to sail down the Missisippi and into the Gulf of Mexico from the Port of New Orleans.

All I ask is a tall ship and a star to steer her by; John Masefield

I was trying to remember from my last sailing out of NOLA, and honestly can't recall exactly. Think it was at least a couple or 3 of hours.

It has been at least ten years so details are fuzzy...
It took long enough I managed to have a decent buzz going when we hit the first swell.
