Tours

TOURS, CRUISES AND FISHING TRIPS

Fisherman’s Wharf has several exciting adventures in addition to fishing. Take a look at the many different opportunities we offer!

Whooping crane tours

Don’t miss out on the opportunity see the endangered Whooping Cranes. We offer the chance to witness these birds in their natural habitat! These are Winter and Spring time trips to the Aransas National Wildlife Refuge. The lowest impact way to see these birds is from the water looking onto the Refuge, and there is no better way to see them than in the comfort of the Wharf Cat and Scat Cat.

SUNSET CRUISE

A perfect way to wind down after a long day is on our leisurely sunset cruise. Our captain and crew will do their best to make sure you get the best view in the area of the sun bidding us farewell for another day. We do our best to make sure you get to appreciate the natural beauty and experience the best our area has to offer.

JETTY BOAT

The Jetty Boat runs every day from Fisherman’s Wharf in Port Aransas to a private dock at the base of the North Jetty on San Jose Island. The Jetty Boat is the only way to access the North Jetty and the deserted beaches of San Jose Island for fishing, birding, beachcombing along the empty beaches, and getting back to nature at its finest.

PRIVATE GUIDES

Inshore or offshore, we have you covered. The Wharf Cat and Scat Cat are the largest and most stable party boats in the area doing deep sea fishing of all kinds. We also can set up a private charter offshore for those who want a more specific trip or to chase Blue Marlin, White Marlin, and Sailfish. For the bay, jetties, and surf we have a stable of private guides that will help you with the trip of a lifetime for Redfish, Trout, and all the other fish we are blessed to have here in Port A

PRIVATE PARTIES

Host a private sight-seeing tour, fishing trip, or party on one of the largest and best riding Party Boat in Port A. We offer bookings for groups of any size. This is ideal for business groups, family reunions, wedding parties, birthday parties or a large group of friends.

For availability, pricing, and group discounts, please call the Fisherman’s Wharf.

DOLPHIN WATCH

An adventure for the whole family, we offer the newest dolphin watching experience in Port Aransas. We will head out of the harbor in the calm and protected inland channels and find the local pods of dolphins. You will be able to see them feeding and frolicking in their natural habitat, take close up photos, learn some local history and lore, and see beautiful views of Port Aransas and San Jose Island that those poor landlocked souls cannot.

I was worried because the surf had been so big at the beach the past few days, so we were a little scared of our trip being too rough and getting sick. We ended up being really surprised at how smooth the trip out ended up being, and how the boat didn’t rock too bad while we were out there, and everyone caught fish. It was a great day!
