Getting Here
Port Aransas is located on the northern tip of Mustang Island about 30 minutes across the bay from Corpus Christi. Take your choice of two ways to access the island. From Corpus Christi, the island is linked by the JFK Causeway, which climbs high above the Laguna Madre making a direct line to SH 361 and Port 'A.' Alternately, take the 'scenic route.' The free ferry system brings visitors to the island across the Corpus Christi Ship Channel via car ferries, which operate 24 hours a day, seven days a week. Often bottlenose dolphins accompany the ferries back and forth to the delight of those aboard. Gulls and pelicans are frequent flyers along the short trip, too! You can also fly into Corpus Christi International Airport, or land your private plane on Mustang Beach Airport's 3,500 ft. runway.
