Port Aransas - Fisherman's Wharf

Fisherman’s Wharf has been a staple of the Port Aransas community since 1971, and the Wharf Cat and Scat Cat have long been the pride of the Port Aransas fleet. After the devastating blow of Hurricane Harvey in 2017, the opportunity arose to re-develop the old concrete block bait stand known as the Fisherman’s Wharf into a modern, full-service marina store and fuel dock.

With deep roots in Port Aransas and a love for all types of fishing, we knew firsthand what the local fishing community needed when we set out to design the new Fisherman’s Wharf. The new facility has been meticulously designed to accommodate everyone from the local fishing guide to the once-a-year visitor looking to spend a relaxing day on the water.

The Marina Store offers a full selection of tackle, bait, beverages, snacks, apparel and more. Our cold storage room and industrial ice machine offer cold beverages and bulk ice, which can be delivered directly to your boat by one of our professional staff members.

The iconic Wharf Cat and Scat Cat party fishing boats, offer inshore, offshore, and dolphin watch tours daily. Each vessel has been completely overhauled with new engines and generators, new electronics, new tackle, and many more upgrades.

Whether you need fuel for your boat, fish cleaning services, an offshore fishing trip, or just a cold beverage, the new Fisherman’s Wharf has you covered.

Tight Lines!

Marina Facilities

The new Fisherman’s Wharf was specifically designed to provide the highest level of dockside service in the area.

The dock spaces were strategically separated into two fueling areas, one for large diesel vessels and the other for smaller gas-powered boats. This layout, along with the state-of-the-art fueling system, multiple high-speed pumps, and high-flow nozzles, can accommodate up to 8 vessels at any given time.

The fuel dock is only steps away from our ample cold storage and ice room, where bulk drinks are ready for a day on the water. The 10,000-pound industrial ice maker allows bulk ice to be delivered boat-side by one of our many dock hands!

The fuel dock and fish weighing area flows perfectly into the full-service fish cleaning facility, where professional fish cleaners are on-site daily to clean and bag fish to any customer’s needs.

The ship store also carries all the necessities, such as fishing tackle, snacks, apparel, and other fishing gear.

We carry a full range of frozen inshore and offshore bait, both locally caught and out of Florida. All of this can be delivered to your boat by our professional staff.


While our party boats, the Wharf Cat and Scat Cat, have always been known as the largest boats in Port Aransas, they are also the most stable. The catamaran hull design and wide stance restricts the side-to-side rolling that monohull boats experience, making fishing much more stable and comfortable.

In the past few years, both of these workhorses have had complete refits. Extensive work on both boats includes new engines, new generators, new electronics, updated safety equipment, remodeled interiors and restrooms, new paint inside and out, new tackle, new air conditioning and more. The interior improvements allow passengers to relax in the AC while enjoying our snack bar in comfort. The extensive work, updates, and resources put into each of these vessels over the last few years have made them the pride of the fleet. The comfort, safety, and reliability of these two boats will make any day on the water with your family a memorable one.


Back in 2017, Hurricane Harvey blew through the shores of Port Aransas, leaving the area we’ve known as “The Wharf” in ruins. While picking up the rubble, the idea of offering fresh Gulf Coast fare in a family, friendly, fast-casual atmosphere began to take shape. Grumbles Seafood Company emerged from the rubble and offers some of the best gulf coast seafood in the area.

Grumbles Seafood Co. offers a full bar, and a family-friendly atmosphere with waterfront dining. Drop by to taste some of the Best Seafood Near You!

I have brought my dad down for the last few years and tried most of the boats in Port Aransas and want to say just how nice the trip was on the Wharf Cat. I was told it has just been redone on the inside and it was great! The deck hands were some of the nicest we have ever had, especially with my dad being older, they really looked after him and made him feel special. It has taken a while but we don’t have to keep looking for who to go with. This is the best!
