Shrimporee is a sprawling shrimp festival that delivers crustaceous creations and zany, shrimp-themed festivities to families seeking fun and flavor. At the HEB Culinary Tent, chefs from across the state hook audiences with seafood-cooking demonstrations. The annual Shrimporee parade is another popular attraction with its gaudy floats and conga lines of flamboyant shrimp, getting underway on Saturday, June 11 at 10 a.m. Throughout the three-day fiesta, Aransas Pass's streets swell with the country crooning of singer Kyle Park and the Tejano serenades of Jay Perez, and an Eagles tribute band resurrects classic songs using magical guitars. Ambitious shrimp munchers take the stage to lay waste to entire crustacean civilizations in the shrimp-eating contest, and men flaunt their gams in the Men's Sexy Legs competition. This Groupon does not cover the cost of food, arts-and-crafts activities, or carnival rides.

Chefs fuel hungry fisher-folk as they cast lines from picturesque Keepers Pier, serving them a menu of burgers and drinks. Beefy bounties commence with two juicy Jalitos, thinly sliced jalapeño peppers that receive generous coats of breading and dips into the deep frier. Cool down jalapeño-warmed mouths with a soft drink of your choice or by installing miniature fans on your uvula, before biting into a thick Beach burger. After the meal, diners can pick up their fishing pole and hit up some of the U.S. Gulf Coast’s most productive fishing piers. Baited lines can lure texas red fish, scrumptious speckled trout, and whopping black-drum fish, which can grow up to 78 pounds. Big-game sharks prowl the waters, as do feisty cobia fish, whose delicate white meat obtains its color after chilling, late-night readings of Moby Dick.

The strong ocean breezes and calm, shallow waters of Port Aransas make it easy for beginners to try their hand at kiteboarding, standup paddleboarding, or even surfing. Instead of sending novices out on their own with an ironing board and a plastic grocery bag, Port A H20 leads proper kiteboarding camps and lessons helmed by 10-year kiteboarding vet Mike Wagner. With safety in mind, they make sure their surfing instructors are CPR certified and teach clients the basics before renting out standup paddleboards .

Bron Doyle’s brightly painted fleet of E-Z-Go four-wheelers prowls the sands of Port Aransas, ferrying groups, snacks, and drinks to and from the beach. From within each four- or six-person cart, passengers feast their eyes on sweeping views of the surrounding landscape while taking refuge from the sun under the cart’s roof. Bron’s Beach Carts is stationed a short trip to the beach and in close proximity to local hotels, making for a more convenient mode of ground transportation than standing on a surfboard and waiting for a super strong gust of wind.

Founded by two graduates of Texas A&M’s Corpus Christi campus, Padre Island Surf Club caters to all levels of surfers, from first-timers to tube-riding competitors in the Texas Gulf Surfing Association. Instructors maintain a 4:1 student-to-teacher ratio during youth surf camps, tailoring their lessons to campers between the ages of 5 and 17. The team also organizes girls’ and women’s camps and after-school programs that reinforce basic math concepts by requiring students to count the sum total of each day’s high-fives.

When they aren’t building campers’ self-esteem through lessons that become more challenging with each new skill mastered, instructors turns kids loose to have fun with kayaks and standup paddleboards and even schedule trips to the Texas State Aquarium. Padre Island Surf Club’s educational efforts have earned them sponsorships from top industry companies such as Billabong, Kustom, and Surfline.
