If we want to go to Aransas Pass or beyond the shortest route is to take the ferry across. The wait time is usually short and the ride over takes about 5 minutes. They work 365 days and 24 hours so sometimes wait time can be longer. They are able to hold 18 wheeler trucks, large Rv’s and more. You can just walk on as well. They even have webcams (CLICK HERE FOR LINK) so you can see how many are in line waiting. You might get lucky and see some dolphins playing in the wake.
