Exploring the Port of Brownsville

Located at the southernmost tip of Texas, the Port of Brownsville is a bustling deepwater seaport. With its connection to the Gulf of Mexico, the port serves South Texas and a significant portion of northeast Mexico. While it may not be known for its scenic beauty, the port is undeniably fascinating.

From ship repairs to shipbuilding, the port is a hub of activity that supports over 51,000 jobs and generates an annual economic activity of $3 billion. One intriguing aspect is the ship scrapping process, where massive vessels are transformed into piles of recycled metal. It's an incredible sight to behold and learn about.

Port of Brownsville Shrimp Basin Port of Brownsville Shrimp Basin

Adjacent to the main channel lies the Brownsville Shrimp Basin, a dedicated harbor for shrimp boats. Although the shrimping industry in South Texas has seen a decline, with imported shrimp dominating the market, the region still boasts delectable wild-caught Gulf shrimp. During the cruise, you may have the opportunity to taste freshly cooked shrimp, sourced directly from the basin.
