Lighthouse Paddling Trail

Aransas Pass, TX, United States
31 Kudos
Wonderful place to kayak. I must recommend carefully timing so that the tide works with you though, otherwise it can be a bit of a drag (literally). Went with a few friends and saw some beautiful scenery, including the 1857 Lydia Ann Lighthouse for which the trail is named. We also saw some beautiful birds, and stopped in some shallower water for a kayak picnic. Conveniently, there are a few kayak rental options in the area, and we were able to have one delivered and picked up.

In Corpus Christi, recommend taking a tour of the USS Lexington, a World War II-vintage Essex Class aircraft carrier. Lots of very interesting history.
