MeckDC ?

Meck, we sail around Rockport but have sailed down Lydia Ann Channel but have never crossed over to Port A. Can you suggest a place to tie up and grab lunch?

We are about 25 minutes from Corpus where you can get everything you need for your boat and life. We've also been told that the water is much nicer here than in the Galveston area but it's nothing like the FL keys.

Good Luck!

Hi Mike,

Your best bet would be to contact the city marina which is just past the jettys on the port side. There are some temporary slips at the very end of the channel for loading and unloading. You may be able to dock there but otherwise you'd have to tie up at the city marina. There is a free trolley that runs once an hour but from there you can walk pretty much anywhere in town. We've had lunch at the Wharf, it was good and not too expensive. We've heard the Beach Street Station & Grill is good for lunch but have only been there for breakfast. They are closed Tues. - Thurs. Here's a link to some other restaurants in Port A.

Let me know if you need anything else.

I know this thread has been barren for a while, but I am also a senior in college dreaming of living aboard next year. I have a job offer in Freeport, TX and was wondering if you knew of any marinas in that area.
