Texas Mariners Cruising Association
The Largest Boating Club on the Gulf Coast
Texas Mariners Cruising 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!
Well if you thought that we were going to just sit and watch the boating world go by, you are in for a surprise. We had 58 people show up for the Orientation Meeting and 68 people attend the Planning Meeting. What a great turn out. Because of this great attendance we have a very busy calendar this year and something for everyone. We will be having at least one cruise per month and sometimes two. Also, every month we are having several social events to keep everyone happy. And don’t forget that each month we will have a special speaker at every monthly meeting.
