Bay Harbor Vacation Rentals

These homes have oversized lots that provide great unobstructed views of the water, as well as easy access to it. Enjoy morning coffee, afternoon snacks, or evening cocktails on your huge private deck. Some homes even have private docks, so you can tie up your own kayak, or hop on your paddleboard for an early morning adventure in the calm waters. Bay Harbor rentals are perfectly suited for large groups, so bring your family and friends for a vacation you’ll always remember!

Nearby Activities

You’ll have your pick of ways to get out on the water, whether you love heading out on a deep-sea fishing charter or exploring by kayak or paddleboard. If you don’t have a fishing boat, be sure to call up Gulf Coast Concierge, who will set you up for all your fishing charter needs. Bay Harbor does not have a boat ramp, so if you plan on launching your own boat, you will need to go to the public boat launch in Sea Isle. There are numerous places to rent kayaks, paddleboards, surfboards, and all manner of other fun ocean equipment in Galveston.

Want to scope out the water from a different view? Call up Galveston Helicopters for some exciting aerial thrills. See Galveston Island like never before, and marvel at the beaches, piers, and vast ocean from a bird’s eye view. If that’s not quite exciting enough for you, how about an aerial leap? Skydive Galveston would love to help you make those wildest dreams come true! Galveston is the only place in the country where skydivers land on the beach, every single time.

If you prefer a different type of adrenaline rush, consider booking a ghost tour. Galveston is considered to be a very haunted city, owing to its violent history which includes deadly storms, pirate hideaways, and epidemics. There are many great ghost tours available, but no doubt one of the best is Dash Beardsley, the “Ghost Man of Galveston.” Learn all about the island’s fascinating history, hear spooky local stories, and visit various haunted sites, including the Old City Cemetery and The Strand historic district.

Whether you’re looking for ghosts or not, there are some fascinating places to tour in Galveston. If you love historic homes and museums, be sure to stop by Moody Mansion, Menard House, and Bishop’s Palace. Each with their own charm and architectural fascinations, Galveston’s historic homes are a chance to step into the luxurious charm of a former era. Bishop’s Palace in particular offers a very detailed audio tour, amazing stained-glass windows, and probably one of the coolest gift shops ever.
