Can anyone tell me are there snorkeling tours in Corpus Christ or Port Aransas and where to call if so??? I am planning a trip there but am set on going snorkeling and only see South Padre Island snorkeling tours online. I will make the extra two hour drive if necessary.
The water quality and clarity around Corpus doesn't really facilitate snorkeling. The currents in that part of the Gulf are also not very desirable for snorkeling or diving. The boat tours from Corpus you'll see will likely all be for deep sea fishing. If you want to do that, then Corpus is a great place.
I wouldn't think South Padre would be terribly good either. You need some pretty clear water to do it, and the northern Gulf is just not that. I'd look at the reviews first, because it makes me think that they just do it for tourists and it's not really much of a snorkeling destination.
