I saw your post on the San Bernard last fall - did you ever make it up there at all?
We are looking for additional things to do that are a couple of days out of Rockport so may look into that a little closer down the line. Hopefully can at least find the anchorage listed on AC just south of the ICW.
We have not made the trip yet. Tried several times, but weather always seems to get in the way. I did contact someone who lives on the river and got thefollowing info:
ICW and San Bernard intersection: Mile 405, 100 yards south of intersection
good for anchoring, don't venture further since the mouth is closed and the
area is very shallow.
San Bernard River: 14 - 16' feet deep, no sand bars. Tow boats and barges
travel to the Phillips 66 refinery 25 miles up river, one or two trips a day or night.
Mile 10 OVHD PWR CAB is 60' clearance.
Mile 10.5 Churchill Bridge 43' vertical clearance.
Mile 17 FM 521 bridge 45' vertical clearance.
Mile 20 RR bridge 19' vertical clearance.
Mile 25 Phillips barge terminal, can anchor above to Black Ferry Bridge.
Mile 26 Black's Ferry Bridge 13' vertical clearance, water is deep to there.
Restaurants: Mile 4 - 2J's Restaurant 979-964-3233, mile 13 - Dido's
Restaurant 979-964-3167, Nancy Kanter, possible overnight tie up
Channel 10 working channel on San Bernard.
If you are in Galveston, don't miss the museum about the 1900 hurricane. Very interesting.
Have you gone south to Port Aransas and Corpus Christi? Close to you and great places to visit.
