Kayaking Laguna Madre

Recently my husband and I went kayaking in Laguna  Madre in Port Mansfield, Texas.  It was – what I would consider – a very easy kayaking trip. It was easy to put in right from the shore. The waves were very calm and gentle with an occasional splash over the tip of the kayak. The water was also very shallow, perhaps 2-feet deep about 500-feet from the shore. You could stand up and walk back to shore. I would recommend this trip for a beginner kayaker because of its simplicity and the shallow water.

Explore the island a bit and see the remnants of a boardwalk. If you are lucky you will also see the herd of Nilgai Antalope that were imported to the island in the 1940’s.
