Kayaking & Paddling

Matagorda is a very special place for paddling due to it’s large selection of easy access sites for paddling the Colorado River, the bayous of Matagorda Bay and off the beach. The bayous, which lead to both East and West Matagorda Bay, are generally protected calm and shallow waters that are easy for beginner paddlers. There are marked kayaking trails in the area & GPS coordinates of these areas are available online. You can find Matagorda paddling trails here. Many of these areas are inaccessible by motor boat, making them quiet and peaceful outings that offer world class birding and fishing opportunities.
