Experience Port Aransas fishing when you charter a fishing excursion. Offshore fishing excursions take you out into the depths of the Gulf of Mexico. Charter a trip for just six hours on the water all the way up to two full days on the water. All anglers 17 and older must have a valid Texas saltwater fishing license before departure from the dock.

Sunset Cruise & Dolphin Watch

Jetty Boat

The boat runs daily between the wharf and the base of the North Jetty on San Jose Island. The boat is the only way to access the North Jetty and the beautiful, uninhabited shores of San Jose Island for fishing, birding, beachcombing, swimming, and other water activities.


The docks of the Wharf are the place to make sure you have everything you need for a productive day on the water. Bait, tackle, provisions, and even apparel like hats, sunglasses, and more can be purchased before setting sail. Make sure to fuel up at the fuel dock and ask about on-site fish cleaning services.


Refuel and head back out or celebrate a productive day on the water with fresh seafood served right at the Wharf. Grumbles Seafood Co. is located right at the Wharf and serves locally caught seafood. Pull into the docks and enjoy your meal while looking out over some of the best views in Port Aransas.
