You came to Port Aransas for Texas warmth, fun, and the sand and water at the beach along the Gulf of Mexico. The beach and water is a top priority any time of year. While long walks, swimming in the waves, or building a sand castle on shore are all great activities, some may like to add some adrenaline and sport to their day at the beach. Here are some of the best water sports of Port Aransas!
Go up, up, and away over the water. Take off from the deck of a specially designed and USCG-approved parasailing boat to fly high above the waters of the Gulf. Keep watch on the water from your bird’s eye view for dolphins, whales, fish, and other sea life. Bring your waterproof or disposable camera to capture the memories from your perspective. Fliers must be at least 7 years old.
Learn to surf on your trip to Port Aransas. You can try windsurfing or traditional surfing along the Port Aransas coast. Professional instructors provide private lessons that will give you the skills to rent your own board and surf the waves on your own.
There are several companies that take Port Aransas water sports below the waves. Book a snorkeling or SCUBA diving tour where you’ll 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.
Rent a jet ski and slice through the waters of the Gulf at your own speed. There are several companies that rent jet skis for more fast-paced water excitement. Contact your company of choice and ask about rates as well as age restrictions for passengers and drivers.
