    Port Aransas TX.

    I am thinking about a vacation in Port Aranas TX and wondering if any of you have jet skied on the gulf side of the barrier island. I visited Port A a few years ago. Was thinking of going back with the kids and the jet ski. I didn't check it out when I was there so wondering about places to launch close to the gulf side condos. Is the water to rough? Any info / experience you might have would be helpful.

    Never been to Port Aransas, but from my experiance with other areas along the Texas coast if you are not used to rough water you may want to stick to the bay side.

    I second that!!! The gulf is ok as long as you catch the water with very little wave action. Get about 50 yards out and cruise along the shoreline about 10 miles or so. The bay is nice and calm most of the time. the only issue I have about bay riding is the unexpected reefs that show up out of nowhere. Galveston bay is terrible about old oyster reefs and since the storm, they have moved all over. The bay is nice because you can always stop to rest and not get wave action.
