Rockport is a horrible beach that no one should ever go to had a run in with 2 6ft bull sharks and 6 stingrays there and lots of broken glass. Everyone should stay a way from Rockport. Port Aransas is much better please all tourists go there.

Bullsharks in the shallow lagoon. Broken glass on the Blue Wave Beach.

And then telling him to go to Port A.
There is always a chance of rays there, but I can't find any news articles to that effect. I have personally seen jellies, but that comes with the ocean.
I've found more hermit crabs than anything there.

If they're that dangerous, find any news article discussing a shark attack in Rockport. It will be tough, since there have only been 67 reported in Texas in 150 years.
I'll even hide the answer in here.
Spoiler
- Sept. 1, 1894: Victim was fishing, attack unprovoked, non-fatal.
- May 1, 1911: Victim was fishing, attack unprovoked, non-fatal.

You'll note that these aren't bathers at the Rockport Beach.

A lot of the photographs that get used are taken on days where we get the crystal blue sky out. Those days happen most often right after a cold front and as such people aren't swimming because it's cold(Cold for us is below 60). Plenty of people swim at all the beaches. Don't swim in the actual ship channel because you will probably get arrested or run over by a ship way too big to stop. In any case it's a fairly long swim from North Beach to get into the channel. All of the beaches are shallow. Other than the ship channel the bay depth is 12 feet maximum. On the Gulf there are three or so sand bars with small valleys between them but you can nearly always stand with your head out of the water on the first two bars. Jellyfish are omnipresent but usually harmless. Man O Wars you can usually see and shark attacks are unlikely. Driving to the beach is more dangerous than anything at the beach.

Where is Dead Man's Hole?

I went swimming in the Gulf at Padre Island yesterday morning and it was lovely. Surprisingly little trash and no sea weed. Didn't see any jellyfish or man o'war. At 7:30 a.m. the water and beach were both a perfect temperature.
