HAVE A GREAT TIME
There’s something for everyone when it comes to finding enjoyable ways to spend the day in Port Aransas on Mustang Island, whether you’re looking for a good time in the water, on land or even in the air. No matter your experience level with any of the many 'Port A' activities, there are professionals in town to make sure your visit is a success.
Take to the water on a sailing charter, ride the waves on a surfboard or let the wind pull you on a kiteboard - beginners welcome! There are also plenty of ways to have an awesome time in a kayak. In one of these nimble boats, you can have a pro take you on a guided fishing, birding or nature tour. Or, you can just rent one and cruise leisurely along the water alone or with a partner. For seashell seekers and nature enthusiasts, undisturbed San José Island is a short passenger ferry ride away.
Land-lovers and those who have had their fill of amusement in the water for the day can drive down the beach in a rented beach buggy, build an impressive sandcastle or hit the links for 18 holes of golf. When you’ve had enough of the outdoors, head to a souvenir shop and browse the aisles of trinkets, or stop in to one of 'Port A’s' many bar & grills for a drink or a bite to eat.
Even if the options for a great time on land and in the water aren’t enough to get your blood pumping, you can still take to the air to have an adventure. Watch beachgoers get smaller and smaller as you and up to two companions are pulled into the sky by a parasail hauled by the latest high-tech paracraft boat. Or, get a bird’s-eye view of Mustang Island on a sightseeing flight. If you’re in for a real thrill and a day you’ll never forget, go jump out of a plane strapped to a professional skydiver’s back, finishing your airplane-to-ground journey with a soft beach landing.
Whether you’re looking for a low-key family excursion, a nature getaway or an all-out adventure, Port Aransas promises to keep you busy. Here, there’s just no excuse to be bored.
