Port A is the perfect place for your next island and beach vacation full of rest and relaxation. Well-known as a fishing town – we’re the Fishing Capital of Texas after all – Fisherman’s Wharf in Port Aransas has what you need to make the best of your water adventures with everything you need, from bait and tackle to apparel and accessories to shield you from the beat of the Texas sun while enjoying a day on the water.
Experience Port A fishing at its best when you charter a fishing excursion. Offshore fishing excursions take you out into the depths of the Gulf of Mexico. Charter a trip for just six hours on the water all the way up to two full days – including overnight – on the water. All anglers 17 and older must have a valid Texas saltwater fishing license before departure from the dock.
Sunset Cruise & Dolphin Watch
Wind down at the end of a busy day of fishing or any other Port A adventure you may have in store. The captain and crew pilot the boat to take you in search of the best view of a Port Aransas sunset, while also searching for dolphins and other marine life.
The boat runs daily between the wharf and the base of the North Jetty on San Jose Island. It’s the only way to access the North Jetty and the beautiful, uninhabited shores of San Jose Island for fishing, birding, beachcombing, swimming, and other water activities. Keep in mind San Jose Island is a private island, and visitors are not permitted past the beach.
The docks of the wharf offer necessities like bait, tackle, provisions, hats, sunglasses, and more can be purchased before setting sail. Make sure to fuel up at the fuel dock or take advantage of on-site fish cleaning services.
Refuel and head back out or celebrate a productive day on the water with fresh seafood served right at the wharf restaurant in Port Aransas, TX. Grumbles Seafood Co. is located right at the wharf and serves locally caught seafood. Pull into the docks for a dock-and-dine experience and enjoy your meal while looking out over some of the best waterfront views in Port A.
