    Did you know that there is a TEXAS PADDLING TRAIL?

    There are  37 official Texas Paddling Trails available throughout the state!!


    PADDLING is the JULY OUTDOOR ACTIVITY of the MONTH!!!

    AND there are   ~~~~  2  Coastal Paddling Trails   ~~~~~

    Lighthouse Lakes Paddling Trail

    The Lighthouse Lakes Paddling Trail was the very first Texas Paddling Trail and is actually a series of four loops ranging in length from 1.25 miles to 6.8 miles. The trails meander through an extensive black mangrove estuary, into sloughs and back lakes near the historic 1857 Lydia Ann Lighthouse on North Harbor Island. Paddlers can glide through mangroves and seagrass flats that provide outstanding bird watching and fishing for red drum, spotted seatrout and flounder in the maze of tidal channels and flats.  The Lighthouse Lakes Paddling Trail is part of Redfish Bay, a minor bay straddling Aransas and Corpus Christi Bays.

    Trail Length: The trail complex is made up of four trails ranging in length from 1.25 to 6.8 miles.   Paddling Time: 45 minutes to 3 hours depending upon the trail.



    Mustang Island Paddling Trail

    The Mustang Island Paddling Trail consists of the North Trail (8.5 miles), the Shamrock Loop (5.24 miles) and the Ashum Trail (6.8 miles). All of the trails follow the western shoreline of Mustang Island in Corpus Christi Bay, and cover some of the best shallow-water fishing areas in Texas. The Ashum Trail follows the shoreline of Corpus Christi Bay over a firm sand bottom and allows for outstanding bird watching as well as sight-casting opportunities. The Shamrock Loop skirts the beautiful, protected waters of Shamrock Cove, where it connects with the North Trail, which follows the shoreline to East Flats and then meanders through marsh and spoil islands to the Island Moorings marina in Port Aransas.  Trail Length & Paddling Time will vary.

  • Summer VACATION At The BEACH...Texas

    Vacation on the Beach... Rockport/Fulton & Port Aransas Beaches.

    Be prepared to  
      HAVE LOTS OF FUN
      ENJOY THE VIEWS
      CATCH SOME FISH
    BE SAFE

    Rockport Beach is Texas' first Blue Wave Beach and one of only four on the Texas Gulf Coast.  
     

    Rockport Beach Information

     There is a daily $5 or $15 annual vehicle parking fee. There is no charge to enter by foot, bicycle, or if you are towing a boat or boat trailer to go to the public boat ramp.  No dogs allowed inside the beach since it is a bird sanctuary. 

    There are 61 individual picnic sites spread throughout the Rockport Beach.  Each site has a covered picnic table with barbeque grill.  These sites are first come/first serve. 

    No, overnight camping is not permitted in the Rockport Beach. 

    Fishing is permitted just about anywhere, including a popular 800 foot pier at the North end of the beach.  Two off-limit fishing sites are the boat dock and the Saltwater pool.

     Rockport Little Bay WATER SAFETY 

    All boats/personal watercraft pulling skiers within Little Bay must have an observer 13 years of age or older on board and facing rearward. 

    All traffic in the ski basin is one-way and must travel in a counterclockwise direction. 

    No motor vehicles or personal watercraft are allowed in restricted areas (shallow areas of Little Bay) marked by signs. 

    No sailing in the ski basin. 

    No airboats in the ski basin.

    Port Aransas 

    Beach Parking Permit Information 

    1. The City of Port Aransas requires a $12.00 permit to park along the beaches. This includes the area from Marker (0) to Marker (62) except in the free parking area.

    2. Free Parking areas include between the Jetties and Horace Caldwell Pier and between Markers 52-58

    3. RV, tent and other types of camping are permitted on the beach. 

    4. There is a three (3) night limit for camping during any three (3) week period. 

    5. Small fires no larger than 3 ft. x 3 ft. are permitted on the beach.


    BEACH SAFETY
    • Check the beach at the water line for any marine life that has washed ashore, please DO NOT TOUCH! They can still be venomous even though they are not in the water.
    • If there are Jelly Fish or Man -O- War washed ashore, be careful when getting into the water, and try not to make contact with them.
    When walking in the water, shuffle your feet. This will frighten the stingray, causing it to move out of the way, and lessen your chance of stepping on them.

    Jelly Fish 
    Their bodies are hemispherical in shape, that are tough and thick, white, milky, or bluish in color. Their tentacles are short and fused into a tight bundle that contains a poison that will also cause a stinging sensation.

    Portuguese Man -O- War
    Also called the bluebottle, can be found in the Gulf of Mexico. The Man -O- War has a gas-filled chamber that is used like a sail to propel it through the water. The Man -O- War is iridescent blue, with long tentacles that can reach up 180 ft in length. The tentacles contain a poison, which causes the stinging sensation.

    TREATMENT

    1. Immediately get away from the creature as they can sting many times.
    2. Protecting your hands with a towel scrape the tentacles and/or slimy deposits from the skin.
    3. Packing the area with wet sand, and then wash it away with water (repeat as needed) will also help remove the remnants of the jellyfish from your skin.
    4. Make a paste from Unseasoned Meat Tenderizer and rubbing alcohol, and then apply the mixture to the affected area. Unless affected area is the genital area, then use water to make the paste instead of rubbing alcohol.
    The meat tenderizer applied to the affected area detoxifies the effects of the venom. Once the pain has subsided, wash away the paste, and treat area, as you would sunburn.

    ...call 911 if there is an allergic reaction...

    Did you know that GAGA@Rockport stands for  The Gentileschi Aegis Gallery Association.  

    GAGA@Rockport is a not for profit organization run by and for women artists whose mission is to serve the women’s artist community of San Antonio. 


    On exhibit at The Rockport Center for the Arts is  "Welcome to the Hard Times: Photographs of East Texas."    A collection of images taken with a large format pinhole camera.  The images tell a story of the past ... collapsed or abandoned farms and machinery. There is a feeling that time has moved on and these landscapes have been passed by. 

    Also on exhibit "The Artist" by Jennifer Polnaszek and "Sanctuary" by Roberta Buckles. 

    There is a wide range of media and talent in "GAGA@ Rockport."   The association mission is to further the status of women within the San Antonio community by providing a forum, exhibition space & network system for the discussion, & the exhibition and dissemination of creative work.  

    The exhibition is on display through June 9 at the Rockport Center for the Arts.
