Welcome to majestic Port O’Connor, Texas. The best kept secret on the Gulf Coast. A perfect balance of luxury, relaxation, and adventure can be found in this quaint fishing community known as POC. A fantastic getaway for the saltwater fishing adventurer looking for the chance to snag the trophy trout of a lifetime! Inshore fishing like none other on the Texas Coast; redfish, black drum, and flounder are regulars on the cleaning tables. If offshore fishing is more your style Port O. offers quick access to the Gulf through Pass Cavallo. Marlin, kingfish, tarpon and snapper are commonly found in and around the waters of Espiritu Santo Bay and Matagorda Bay. Exciting duck hunting action will keep you telling stories for time to come.
Port O’Connor’s typically calm waters are a great place for sailing, boating, kayaking and other forms of water sports. If a quite stroll combing the beach is what you’re looking for just try beautiful King Fisher beach or take a quick boat ride over to Matagorda Island and Sunday beach. Port O’Connor is smack dab in the middle of migration paths for over 300 species of bird making this a sensational place for birding and photography. Looking to discover a hidden gem with all the amenities? You’ve found it in POC. If you are a History buff,click on “Port O’Connor History” on right side of this page.
