We went here to just watch the fishermen do their thing and we ended up seeing so many fish down in the water just swimming around. It was amazingly cool. So many large schools... read more

Not really worth seeing. Some nice restaurants, two rundown bars, a fish cleaner, some companies offering boat trips. Plus a parking lot. You can see a yacht harbour and thats probably the nicest part.

My husband and I had our first overnight fishing trip, and we couldn't have picked a better company to go with. The deck hands were helpful and they had a great sense of humor. The captain moved around accordingly to the fish and made sure we maxed out on red snappers. Some advice for anyone wanting to do try out... More

Port Aransas is simply just great. At the wharf youbuy fresh shrimp and fish. The park surrounding the harbouris excellent and you can sit and watch the ferry's come and go. Sharky's patio is the place to eat lunch

I've done day trips; night trips; 6hr and 12hr; and sunset cruises over the past thirty years. I have always enjoyed either of the smooth riding 'Cats and have never had a problem.

Had a great time out on the Gulf fishing. Didn't catch much, but it was such a nice day,which made it worth-while. The Captain and First-Mate were great guys and tried really had to put us on the fish, but alas, no such luck.

Husband went out on the all day fishing trip. Only 20 folks on the boat and everyone brought back a lot of snapper. He had a great time and the deck hands were all great. Would Recommend.
