Paddlefest 2014 is on! This is the 10th year ken Johnson has put this on. There is free beach camping, inexpensive campsites with water, electric and showers on by the park office. We usually have[masked] paddlers from all over including Mexico City!
There are free guided tours on the famous Lighthouse Trails in the bay, low cost lessons from top Texas instructors ranging from basics to Advance Kayak Surfing and Open Ocean Paddling among the Dolphins.
We have a Meet Up group you can view the events, join and sign up for the tours and lessons at: http://www.meetup.com/Paddlefest-2014/
The meet-up group is still being developed as the events are relayed to me. This is a great way to experience salt water paddling, fishing, kayak surfing and party with a bunch of Texas Paddlers.
