Sometimes you need a getaway with just your guy friends. Whether it’s to get away from the repetition of every day or reconnect with the ones you haven’t seen in a while, a Port Aransas Guys’ getaway with just the guys is just what the doctor ordered! There are plenty of things to do and see that will keep you and your friends as busy or as relaxed as you like.
Your bathing suit or beachwear may be the only thing you wear during your guys’ trip in Port Aransas. Get on your swim suit and gather all the guys for a day on the sand and sea. Pack up your beach gear, stock the cooler with drinks and snacks, and head out for a day on the sand or play time in the water. Swim in the waves of the Gulf or take your daily walk or run on the beach.
Get out and tour the waters of Port Aransas and the Gulf of Mexico to find your perfect spot to while away time. Charter a tour and head out in search of dolphins, whales, and other sea life that call the water around Port Aransas home. Make sure to bring your camera to catch glimpses of the majestic animals, as well as the breathtaking views of the Gulf. Daytime and sunset tours are available from many companies, and some allow you to bring your own snacks and drinks.
You and your buddies can “hang 10” on the crashing waves of the Gulf surrounding Port Aransas. You can try windsurfing or traditional surfing along the Port Aransas coast. Learn from professional instructors during private lessons that will give you the skills to prepare you to rent your own board and surf the waves on your own.
There are several companies that take water sports fun below the waves. Book a unique snorkeling or SCUBA diving tour where you’ll plunge under the water to see a side of Port Aransas and the Gulf of Mexico you won’t see from inside a tour boat. Ask about age restrictions before booking, and make sure to get SCUBA certified before you attempt a dive without a skilled instructor.
Gather the guys and rent some jet skis to slice through the waters of the Gulf at top speed. There are several companies that rent jet skis for more fast-paced water excitement. Contact your company of choice and ask about rates as well as age restrictions for passengers and drivers. You may have to obtain a Texas boating certificate before piloting a craft yourself, even with a tour group.
Glowing Kayak Tour
Enjoy a different way to kayak the waters around Port Aransas. Board a unique, clear kayak that’s lit up by special underwater LED lights! The clear boat allows means you not only see the multiple colors of LED light settings, but also the underwater world beneath you as you paddle. Set the lights to your personal preference of color and style. Paddle along as your tour guide points out landmarks like the Lydia Ann Lighthouse and provides an abundance of knowledge and history about the area on the 1.5-hour nighttime cruise under the stars.
You’ll have to head off-island for some of the area’s best breweries. There are a number of breweries where you can taste locally made brews along with delicious food. Lorelei Brewing Co. is the first brewery in Corpus Christi, while Railroad Seafood Station and Brewing Co. is the first to use the five-barrel system of brewing.
Make sure you see all the sights on your girls’ getaway. The Lydia Ann Lighthouse has stood the test of time and Gulf weather since 1857. Chapel on the Dunes, built in the 1930s, is the oldest consecrated church in the area, and holds tours, as well as weddings. Get to know the area’s fishing history at the Tarpon Inn, built in 1886, or wander through the Port Aransas Museum, or Farley’s Historic Boat Shop.
