PORT ARANSAS  AREA MAP

TEXAS REGIONS

GULF COAST

Port Aransas is connected to its mainland partner, Aransas Pass, by a free five-minute ferry boat ride.

Port Aransas is in Nueces County, averaging about 7 feet above sea level, thus very vulnerable to storm surges.

It is believed the first residents of the Port Aransas area were the Karankawa Indians. This was a cannibalistic tribe of man-eaters, who covered themselves in tar that oozed out of the Gulf of Mexico, to keep mosquitoes from biting them.
