The Corpus Christi Municipal Marina is on Corpus Christi Bay. The ship channel through Port Aransas
provides easy access to and from the Gulf of Mexico. The Corpus Christi Bayfront is the stage for many annual events including Fourth of July fireworks, the Texas Jazz Festival, Bayfest, Buccaneer Days, the Harbor Lights Festival and the Texas International Boat Show, the largest boat show in the South. Trollies provide connections from the marina to other Bayfront attractions, downtown hotels, restaurants, the Convention Center and the Arts and Sciences district. Water taxis take visitors across the harbour to sights such as the Texas State Aquarium and the aircraft carrier USS Lexington.
