Jetty Diving
                                            A note about Jetty diving:
 Jetty diving is a unique type of diving experience. Options for jetty diving include Port Aransas or Packery Channel. At the Packery channel jetties, diving is done on the outsides of the jetty and not in the channel itself due to shallow depths and boat traffic. Depth is around 10'-15' near the end of the jetty, and current & visibility is often an issue here. Diving can be difficult due to the small size of the jetties themselves combined with the large amount of fishermen often there. In Port Aransas, diving can be done in the channel or on the beach sides of the jetty. Diving depth in the Port Aransas channel is around 40', and the beach side is about 15'. Currents in the channel can be too much to handle on some days and visibility is limited as a rule, but on a rare day, it may reach 30'. The South Jetty is easily accessible by car, but the North Jetty, which lies on St Jose Island, is only accessible by boat. Visibility on the North jetty is generally better than that of the south jetty due to prevailing wind direction. If you've never dived Jetties, there is a whole world you're missing out on just waiting to be discovered, and the best part is, you don't have to own a boat.

TIDES- Port Aransas Jetties

This is NOAA's tide prediction for any given day. Generally, the best time to dive the jetties for optimal water clarity is from just before high tide to about half way through the falling tide. It is best to plan to arrive just before high tide to allow time to set up you equipment, then begin your dive as the tide begins to slack.
