General Information


The Port of Corpus Christi, established in 1926, serves the southern region of Texas along the coastline of the Gulf of Mexico.  A multi-faceted port, Corpus Christi combines general cargo, break-bulk, liquid and dry bulk, ship yard services and offshore support into one efficient port operation.


The port is located close to downtown Corpus Christi in Nueces County, Texas, but the port is not part of the city or the county. Port Corpus Christi operates without receiving any city, county, or state tax dollars. It is governed by an unpaid board of seven citizens, three of which are appointed by the Nueces County Commissioners Court, one by the San Patricio County Commissioners Court, and three by the Corpus Christi City Council. Port Corpus Christi handles over 6,000 vessels and over 80,000 tons of cargo annually

 

Channel Depth


The channel has a depth of 45 feet at Mean Low Tide (MLT) with a proposed depth of 52 feet.  Water depths at each dock may vary. 

Tidal Data


A normal tide is considered to be about 1.1 feet above MLT in the Inner Harbor.  Tidal range at Port Aransas is 1.5 feet.  In the Inner Harbor the periodic tide is too small to be of any practical importance. 

Depths and elevations provided in this Guide refer to distances above or below MLT unless noted otherwise.

The aerial clearance for the Inner Harbor is 137.5 feet above Mean High Water (MHW) for both the Harbor Bridge and the Upper Harbor Bridge.  Mean High Water is 1.9 feet above Mean Low Tide.
