    Laguna Madre

    Sailing on the Laguna Madre

    Favorite thing: Wherever you go in Port Isabel you're never far from Laguna Madre. This large shallow bay seperates Port Isabel from South Padre Island. The water is a deep blue, always warm, and usually calm. It offers unlimited opportunities for boating, fishing, water sports, and observing birds and dolphins. This picture is of one of the sailboats we saw from a sightseeing boat as we were out on the bay one afternoon during our visit. In the background you can see the Queen Isabella Causeway, the longest bridge in Texas, which connects Port Isabel with South Padre Island. See our South Padre Island pages for tips on that destination.

    Dolphin Statues

    Karen and a Port Isabel Dolphin

    Favorite thing: Chicago has its Cows, Cincinnati its Flying Pigs, and Port Isabel has Dolphins. Several of these fiberglass statues can be seen throughout Port Isabel, in public places, and in front of business establishments. Each one of the brightly colored figures is decorated differently, and they all add a touch of charm and festivity to the town. Here Karen is posing beside one of the Dolphins on Lighthouse Square.
