I stay at South Shore Harbour marina in League City and love it. My 50' slip is $387.50/month plus electricity. Call (281) 334-0515 to get rates for other slip lengths.

There are lots of choices in those area, you can look them up with reviews at

Rockport the best would be Key Allegro marina.

Port Aransas would be Island Moorings marina. The city marina is OK, but no pool or amenities to speak of.

RE: Kemah/Rockport/Port Aransas Texas area- Marinas

In 2006 I asked myself the same question.* We took a down coast trip all the way from Kemah to Brownsville, with a cruising guide in hand.* We found that the Kemah area suited our needs the best due to multiple cruising locations.* We are destination cruisers and seldom pull the boat out of the slip for less than a Friday night, Saturday and then a late Sunday return.*
Besides just anchoring out in Galveston Bay you have lots of locations to cruise to including but not limited to:
Cedar Bayou
Oak Island
Double Bayou
Smith Point
Laguna Harbor
Galveston Yacht Basin
Harbor House
Moody Gardens
These are just a few of the local spots that came to mind as a response to your post.* If you would like additional information on locations I have listed check out
