Boating

Texas Mariners Cruising Association (TMCA) is a nonprofit corporation formed in 1979 to promote cruising. Cruises are organized throughout the year for many destinations on Galveston Bay and Texas Gulf Coast waters. In addition to cruising, the TMCA has numerous social events, ranging from informal dock parties at local marinas to the Annual Commodore’s Ball.

Education is an important element of TMCA. Monthly meetings feature educational and entertaining programs, while occasional courses are sponsored on a variety of boating topics. Naturally, the greatest educational benefit comes from participation in club cruises.

Organized cruises are day or overnight weekend adventures on Galveston Bay. We have also ventured as far as Louisiana and Mexico for periods of up to two weeks.  Cruises in exotic destinations such as Beize, Croatia, and the BVIs also take place. 

TMCA members include families, couples, and singles - a vital group of people sharing a common interest. We welcome you to our boating community and hope you will get to know our members, most of whom keep their boats in the Clear Lake area.
