The most popular exhibit at Sea Center is the “touch” tank. It displays several types of Texas marine life including anemones, hermit crabs, and sea snails. Visitors can have an up-close encounter while volunteers answer questions and reveal fascinating facts about the animals in the exhibit. The second most popular attraction is the 50,000 gallon aquarium with Texas-size fish. The fish that call the Gulf of Mexico tank home include a six-foot long state record Green moray eel, Crevalle Jack, Redfish, Atlantic Spadefish, Gray Snapper, and Red Snapper. At 10:30 a.m. on Wednesdays and Fridays, the aquarium fish and visitors both get treated as the fish get fed and visitors get to view the feeding frenzy. In addition to the Gulf exhibit, there are several other aquariums that each houses their own unique underwater marvels. From the frisky Diamondback Turtles that swim up to greet you to the slow moving and lackadaisical Snook hanging by a jetty rock to the inquisitive Porcupine Puffer in the artificial reef, visitors will be able to discover the many different faces of Texas coastal environments.

The site is also a popular destination for schools, scouts and groups. There are a variety of education programs including hatchery tours, wetland tours and other programs that Sea Center offers. The facility depends on a limited number of volunteers to conduct tours and programs so call in advance for reservations. During the hatchery tours, participants are led through one of the largest red fish hatcheries in the world. Visitors will be astonished when they see the huge 20-30 pound fish that produce millions of red drum and spotted sea trout hatchlings that are so tiny you almost need a microscope to view them. The hatchlings are transferred to ponds where they are able to grow in a protected environment before they are transferred to the bays along the Texas coast. Hatchery tours, which last about 45 minutes, are scheduled Tuesdays through Saturdays as space and volunteer guides are available. In addition to guided hatchery tours, the site offers self-guided tours of the wetland exhibits and a variety of special events and fishing programs. Admission is free but donations are appreciated.

ter boats available for parties of 6 or less and boats that can accommodate groups up to 24. Deep water species available offshore include red snapper (when in season), grouper, king mackerel, amberjack, dolphin, wahoo, tuna, cobia (ling), as well as many others. Live baits like Ballyhoo, Cigar Minnows, Squid, Boston Mackerel and Spanish sardines are best used on these fish. The fishing regulations and seasons for offshore fish are constantly changing, so make sure that your guide/captain has the latest set of federal regulations. Fishing in state waters is one more option for the offshore fisherman. You must be within 9 nautical miles of the closest point on land to be considered in state waters. Red Snapper, Cobia, King Mackerel, Spanish Mackerel, certain Shark species, Red Drum, and even Tarpon can be taken in this area with summer and early fall being the most productive. State law requires that all fishermen have a Texas fishing license and a saltwater stamp whether they are fishing in federal or state waters. Fishing tackle for all of the above types of fishing can be purchased from either sporting goods stores, convenience stores near the beach, or any of the bait shops in the Area. For the weekend fishermen or the serious angler, the Brazosport area has fishing opportunities for everyone. So if you have lived in the area all of your life or are just visiting, taking advantage of a chance to go fishing will likely pay off.

The Christmas Bay Paddling Trail has launch points at San Luis Pass County Park and along Bluewater Highway in Surfside. The Stephen F. Austin Paddling Trail winds through one of the most incredible ecological systems; two launch points are at the Wilderness Park in Lake Jackson and at the Freeport Municipal Park in Freeport. Paddle down Oyster Creek from the launch point at Dunbar Park in Lake Jackson. The San Bernard National Wildlife Refuge and the Brazoria National Wildlife Refuge both have waterways to fish, explore wildlife or just relax with many different launch sites. Rent kayaks at Breaker Sports or Beach Front RV Resort in Surfside Beach or from the Freeport Marina on the Brazos River. www.visitbrazosport.com.

7. THE SAN BERNARD NATIONAL WILDLIFE REFUGE

If you are looking for a great place to bird watch on your own or in small groups then the San Bernard NWR is the refuge for you. There is a unique blend of coastal marsh, prairies, potholes, fresh water lakes and oak forests that make this site special. An auto-tour is a good way to see alligators around the refuge. Hiking trails and boardwalks are great for spotting migrating warblers, cinnamon teals, purple gallinules, and western rarities on this 42,000-acre site. Take a journey through forested wetlands to Texas’s largest Live Oak tree. The Hudson Woods Unit is a Columbia Bottomlands tract and just a short drive north of the San Bernard.

It lies along Oyster Creek and has an ADA accessible interpretive trail. Open daily from sunrise to sunset. www.refugefriends.org

8. GULF PRAIRIE PRESBYTERIAN CHURCH & CEMETERY
