When the stress and grind of every day starts to wear you down, a week’s vacation sounds like a glorious and relaxing answer. An island vacation on top of that? Bliss. Enjoy blissful relaxation when you plan a 7 day journey to Port Aransas.
An island vacation also means a beach vacation. You can spend all seven days of your trip lounging on the sand with a book or sunbathing, playing in the water, or any other activity you can think of. When you rent a vacation condo with us – the only condo community directly on the beach – you’re just steps from the beach and its activities.
You could walk out to the end of nearby Horace Caldwell Fishing Pier and watch dolphins and whales surface or the fish swim beneath you, or you could get out on the water for a closer look. There are several companies that charter dolphin or whale-spotting cruises, as well as fishing excursions. For a romantic atmosphere, come back in the evening for a sunset cruise.
Skip the paved roads. They’re great for getting from Point A to Point B, but you don’t get the whole island vibe from inside a car. Lose the confinements of an enclosed car and turn off the paved road when you rent a beach cart. These golf carts are approved to drive on the sand as well as roads and are a fun and unique way to get where you’re going. Carts seat four-six people, and many are equipped with coolers, windshields, Bluetooth speakers, rearview mirrors, and roofs.
Glowing Kayak Tour
You may have gone kayaking during the day, but did you know you can take a relaxing paddle at night? Go four a kayak tour of the area in a unique, clear kayak lit up by special underwater LED lights! The clear boat allows you to see not only the multiple colors of LED light settings you can choose, but also the underwater world beneath you as you paddle. Your tour guide will point out landmarks and provide an abundance of knowledge and history about the area on the 1.5-hour nighttime cruise under the stars for a different perspective of Port Aransas.
Red Dragon Pirate Cruise
Take a different kind of cruise. Fun for the whole family, you can sail the high seas like the pirates of old! Cruise the waters of the Lydia Ann Channel where you’ll spot dolphins. Sharpen your sword fighting or treasure map reading skills, fire a cannon, and enjoy plenty of pirate fun! Be sure to bring your camera to capture all the memories and pirate mischief. There will be soft drinks and snacks, as well as beer, wine, pina coladas, rum, tequila, and whiskey-based drinks for the adult pirates.
Lydia Ann Lighthouse
One of the sights that’s not to be missed on your seven-day journey is the Lydia Ann Lighthouse, also known as the Aransas Pass Light Station. It was built in 1857, and the lighthouse is not accessible by road, so you’ll have to admire it from afar. Take a cruise past it in your own vessel or during a boat tour or get a good view of it from nearby Roberts Point Park.
Who says learning has to stop just because you’re on vacation? Learn to “Hang 10” on the crashing waves of the Gulf surrounding Port Aransas when you try windsurfing or traditional surfing along the Port Aransas coast. Professional instructors offer private lessons that will give you the skills to grab your own board and surf the waves on your own.
Experience the water below the waves when you book a snorkeling or SCUBA diving tour. Plunge under the water to see a side of Port Aransas and the Gulf of Mexico you won’t see from inside a tour boat. Ask about age restrictions before booking, and make sure to get SCUBA certified before you attempt a dive without a skilled instructor.
