~St. Jo Island, located just north of Port Aransas/Mustang Island, is approximately 28 miles long, less than 2 miles wide at its widest point and is a natural haven for fishermen and beach lovers. The Jetty Boat at Fisherman's Wharf is the only passenger ferry to St. Jo Island.
~Accessible only by boat, St. Jo Island is the perfect place to beachcomb, shell, surf, swim and picnic. The fishing is excellent, so bring your rods and reels. Besides jetty fishing, there is shark fishing, surf fishing, crabbing on the bay side and seining. The beach remains natural, so if you are a beachcomber, come search St. Jo's shore!
~St. Jo is a privately owned island and no government entity cleans the beach on a regular basis. The trash that is already there has washed up from offshore. Please do not leave any trash on the island.
~There are no public facilities, no buildings on the island, so bring all of your gear to Fisherman's Wharf and take the Jetty Boat over to St. Jo.
~Too much gear to carry yourself? Fisherman's Wharf will rent you a cart to take your gear in for only $10 per day.
~Fisherman's Wharf offers a discount card for $100 that is good for 10 trips to St. Jo. and group rates are available.
~Fisherman's Wharf offers fishing tackle, bait, snacks, drinks, sunscreen, ice chests, cameras, t-shirts and caps to complete your trip aboard the Jetty Boat.
~For those of you who are looking for a boat ride only, the Jetty Boat offers a daily Boat Ride/Dolphin Watch that is a family favorite, year 'round!
~Grab your gear and head over to Fisherman's Wharf where salty adventures await you!
