Welcome to the Port of Palacios
Ideal for Industry, Room to Grow
The Port of Palacios is located centrally between Houston, Austin and San Antonio on the Central Texas Coast. This makes it an ideal location to provide industrial partners access to major highways and waterways. The Port is served by the Gulf Intracoastal Waterway via the Palacios Channel, which is federally maintained at a 125-ft width and 14-ft depth. The harbor consists of four turning basins containing over 12,500 feet of well-maintained bulkhead dock.
