Visit this center, located 50 miles south of Houston, to see how sea life is raised to replenish and stock the Gulf and Bay coast. The large aquariums, rearing ponds, and fisheries teach both adults and children about marine preservation and ocean conservation. Special fishing programs are offered for youth several times a year. After experiencing the "touch tank," salt water demonstration and wall displays, you will be hooked and might consider returning with a larger group to tour the hatchery.
One of the most popular and record-breaking fishing spots on the Gulf Coast, this pier stretches out 1200 feet into San Luis Pass, the point where several bays and lakes empty into the Gulf of Mexico. The well-kept bait house at the lighted pier also features air-conditioning, restrooms and a snack bar. Whether you are a serious angler or just fishing for fun, this pier is the place to drop your line.
