Family Sailing Trips
We recently had the pleasure of taking the owner of Ingleside Fishing Charters out of Ingleside Texas and his family on their very first sailing trip and it was a great success. It was a 3 day all-inclusive sailing trip and we even did a little fishing they couldn’t resist it’s in their blood. The trip started in Corpus Christi Texas near Mustang Island and we sailed all the way down the Texas coastline down into the northern part of Mexico and back in the 3 days.
On the first day we meet the family at the marina in Corpus Christi Texas at 6am and did our final checks on the sail boat and made sure everything was safe and ready to go and helped the family load up all the stuff they brought to enjoy the trip. At around 7:30 we left the marina and set sail the first day was mostly spent relaxing and drinking some wine and showing them how everything on the sail boat worked and sailing by some of the offshore oil rigs that they normally take their clients out fishing near. By the end of the end of the day they had a pretty good grasp of the sail boat and were able to help run it and wanted to as they really enjoyed the experience.
On the second day we were about halfway down the Texas coast when we started and we headed further south towards Mexico passing some commercial shrimping boats and fishing boats and watching the birds follow after them looking for a free fresh meal from that days catch. We stopped around the border to go on a swimming and snorkeling adventure as we came across some beautiful coral that we didn’t expect to find. After a few hours of swimming and some fishing we finished out trip down into Mexico.
The third day was mostly spend trying to head back and make up time as we stopped a little too long the previous days to enjoy the waters but we were still able to get in some beautiful sightseeing. Around half the trip back we were followed by a family of dolphins and everyone had a blast trying to touch and feed them on the trip home. We got back to Port Aransas Texas around 6pm and started unloading while the crew started to clean up the sail boat after the trip was completed.
I want to thank Ed and his family for booking a trip with us and for the great trip we had together. If you are ever in the area they are one of the best fishing charter Aransas Pass TX has. They also have a location and are one of the most experienced fishing charters Corpus Christi TX has.
