Parking, Directions and What To Bring
http://www.kemah-tx.gov/


Weekends are busy
and getting over the bridge will likely take longer than you anticipate due to traffic.   Please plan accordingly.   When you turn on 6th street to enter Kemah – take your very FIRST left onto Texas Ave (right after the Kemah Food Mart gas station).   You will see numerous areas to park under the Kemah bridge.  This is your best option for parking.  If you park in a parking lot – there is a charge.  I think it’s around $7 and it’s cash only.

Location of Captain Kidd (Walking distance from the event hotel - Passport Inn)
Capt Kidd is located across the street (Texas Ave) from the Kemah Food Mart (506 Texas Ave) located on the corner of Highway 146 and 6th street in Kemah, Texas. The schooner is berthed on "A" dock which runs along the parking lot on the south end of the Kemah Boardwalk Marina.

Entrance to the boat is via a gate located at the S.W. corner of the marina. The boat is in slip A29, the 4th slip from the gate. (200’ from the gas pumps at the Kemah Food Mart). 

What to Bring
You might want to bring sunscreen, sunglasses, a hat and a camera.  You can also bring drinks and snacks on board.  Please bring at least 2 bottles of water for yourself.
