Try "Campbell''s Guide to Cruising Texas". It is a great guide and should be available in any marine store for about $25-$30.

JR Wright: You didn''t say if your boat is a sailboat or a power boat. Power boat no problem
just turn rt at the bridge in Galveston. if you have at least a 100 mile range no problem. Stop
at Bridge harbor marina, Port Isabell marina, then on to Rockport or Port Aransas then into Corpus. BUT if you have a sailboat go out in the Gulf and do an overnighter. The icc is not well
suited for sailing. The icc is to narrow and the bays you have to enter are shallow and can be very rough this time of yr. Pick your weather very carefully because the icc is not well marked in the big bays.

If your sailboat is shallow draft ICW is okay as there are side canals. Lots of barge traffic, and they push tows 100ft wide. The only deep spot is the channel, as traffic keeps the silt blown off to the side. This makes anchoring iffy, as the anchor tends to just slide in the muck.
I brought my 5' draft through last year, and would be very reluctant to singlehand it again.
