Bring your boat to the Galveston Yacht Basin and join the fun for Marti Gras weekend. We have reserved 10 uncovered slips on E-Dock and 20 covered slips on D-Dock. There are also a few T-head spots. Our TMCA discounted transit fee is $1.50/ft. We'll depart Friday and return on Sunday. In between we'll do docktails, tall tales, Fishtails and any other tail you can catch (fishing that is). 

Friday, February 9th, your Cruise Captain on s/v Austintatious will be leaving marker 2 promptly at 11 AM. VHF Channel 72. We will be going down the west past then cut into the Texas City Channel back to the HSC then into GYB. If you aren't comfortable with that route, you can enter the ship channel near the South Boaters Cut then proceed to Galveston. I recommend running just outside the channel on the green side. There is plenty of water. 

We will have sundowner docktails at 5:00pm (sunset is 6:03pm) under the paviliion outside the E-Dock.  Then you can head our for a bite to eat on your on.  The Strand will be calling our names to come catch some beads, listen to music and party like TMCA does so well.

Saturday (2/10) morning is a pot luck breakfast to share under the pavilion outside the E-Dock (unless we change it). There may even be a Bloody Mary Bar.

Enjoy a casual day around the marina and Galvston. We will head to Fish Tales via the Party Bus to enjoy food, live band, more beads, and another parade. 

Sunday (2/11) Depart at your leisure.
