Dolphin Watch Nature Tours - Groups and individuals can have encounters with the sea that most people never get to experience. Guests may board one of
three boats and choose between a fishing trip, dolphin watch/nature tour, or book a private charter. Watch dolphins up close in their natural habitat as they feed and play. View the diverse selection of birds on the coast including pelicans, cormorants, Whooping cranes, and seasonal species. Dolphin Watch Nature Tours offers a rare opportunity to have a personal
experience with sea animals. The boats have clean restrooms, drinks & snacks, or bring your own picnic. Reservations are required.
Goose Island State Park - The oldest Texas coast state park, Goose Island is a great place to spot brown pelicans and the rare whooping crane. The park's Lamar peninsula is a forest of wind-sculpted trees and home of the famous 2,000 year old live oak tree, the "Big Tree." Although this park is located on the Aransas Bay, there is no designated swimming area or beach; the shore consists of oyster shell, mud flat, and marsh grass, however, swimming is allowed. Visitors can enjoy excellent fishing and birding as well as picnicking, boating, and photography. Facilities include restrooms, a fish-cleaning station, double-lane boat ramp, group recreation hall, andv playground areas.
