Texas Mariners Crusing Association is a nonprofit social club in the Clear Lake area of Houston, TX. Our members have power boats, sailboats, or are "in between" boats. Our activities include cruises of all types: one day, weekend, or extended cruises. They can be geared for power, sail, or both. We also have small boat excursions or dinghy regattas. And certainly no boating organization would be complete without social activities!
These range from dock parties, themed parties or parties in conjunction with our cruises. We also offer great educational opportunities where you can sharpen your boating skills. If you have a boat ~ or are thinking about a boat, if you're a novice boater ~ or experienced boater, TMCA is for you! Come join us!
Come cruise with TMCA! Check out all the details and join us. Registration is OPEN!
TMCA is such a fun club, and we have lots of activities for everyone, you don’t even need to own a boat to be a member.
Keep an eye on the web site calendar, we have lots of events every month, some boating, some social. Don’t forget, you can always drive to all of our events, if your boat isn’t ready.
This club is more like a family, everyone is so welcoming, just be ready to talk about boats.
It’s funny, when you get fishermen together, they end up talking about what they caught recently, and what kind of rods, reels, and bait they were using. When you get boaters together, they end up talking about maintenance, routes, radios, and boats in general. If you have any interest in boating, this is the club for you.
The Kayak trip down Buffalo Bayou from the far side of Memorial Park to Downtown is always a treat. Linda does a great job setting it up, and the views of Houston from the Bayou are something you’ll never forget. Having a beverage and lunch at El Tiempo on Navigation is fun as well.
The Mardi Gras cruise to Galveston Yacht Basin turned out great. A wonderful boat ride, the afternoon docktails, the group breakfast, and participating in Mardi Gras at Fishtales was super fun.
I loved throwing beads, and watching the parade from the balcony. I have to admit that my bead throwing arm was really sore the next day. We had a fun ride down and back, and next time, we’ll take the west bay route. Linda drove us out of the slip, thru the south boater cut, down to GYB, and backed right into our slip on D dock. Our goal is for both of us to be able to run the boat from point to point, including navigation, AIS, and radio work. If you’re not comfortable doing that yet, start small, and add skills each time you’re onboard. That’s the only way to get better.
For our boat, it’s time to get the boat hauled to check our zinc’s, shafts, rudders, props, trimtabs, and inspect the bottom paint.
If you haven’t paid your dues for 2017, you need to log into the web site, and take care of that, remember, all club funds go toward the membership activities.
