Set The Mood

Get jazzed up for an exciting vacation when you turn up the jams from this custom playlist on your drive down to Port Aransas!


This morning, you have options to get your blood pumping! Fuel up with a smoothie from Barefoot Beans or hearty breakfast from Island Café, then hit the sand and find your beach thrills. Get the adrenaline going with a parasail adventure with Chute 'Em Up, or ride the waves on a jet ski from Gettin' Salty for a couple hours.

If you want to hang ten, just rent a board from BoardHouse or Island Surf Rentals and catch a wave. New to surfing? Texas Surf Camps not only hosts week-long camps, but also private lessons for you and a couple friends!


Hop on the golf cart and head down to BierHaus Port Aransas for a prickly pear margarita and a lunch enjoyed from a swing on the patio. Or, spice things up and go to The Crazy Cajun for a meal served right on your table!

One way or another, you need to spend the rest of your afternoon out on the water. In the Fishing Capital of Texas, that's an easy thing to do. Opt for a private tour with a knowledgeable fishing guide to reel in a keeper, or invite the whole crew out on a party boat out of one of the city's marinas. Deep Sea Headquarters, Dolphin Dock, and Port Aransas Fisherman's Wharf will all ensure that you have a great time fighting for your trophy!

If fishing's not your thing, you can instead opt for a tiki cruise with Captain Moon Shelton aboard the Bamboozled! Tiki Tours Port Aransas offers cruises for up to six passengers, a luxury bar top, and a bumping sound system. 


To continue your evening of exploration, go for a night kayaking trip with GlowRow. GlowRow kayaks are clear and feature LEDs that light up the night water and ensure maximum fun! You'll paddle through Lighthouse Lakes trail and see Port A in a whole new light!

For a dry land adventure, it's time to hit the town and experience Port Aransas nightlife! Go dancing at Treasure Island or Bernie's, have a coastal cocktail at Lelo's Island Bar, and listen to live music at one of the many local venues.

Places To Stay

You'll need spacious digs to accommodate your adventurous lifestyle. You want to throw down your surfboard and get going on the next activity, so make sure you book a beach house! Property management companies will help you find what you're looking for, whether that's a place to welcome your furry best friend or you and a dozen of your closest friends.
