Port-Oconnor is an unincorporated village on the southeast coast of Texas. It lies between Galveston and Corpus Christi. The entire zip code area that includes Port O'Connor was 1,253 as of the 2010 census. Called "the best kept secret on the Gulf Coast," the main industries of Port O'Connor are tourism, sport fishing and shrimping. Fishing enthusiasts come to the area for the bay and off-shore fishing of trout, flounder, marlin and redfish. Port O'Connor offers easy and quick access to the Gulf of Mexico via Pass Cavallo. Hunters also frequent Port O'Connor to hunt geese, duck and alligator. Other things to do in the area include sailing, boating, kayaking, birding, beachcombing and just relaxing on the quiet beaches. From Port O'Connor, it's just a quick boat ride to Matagorda Island and Sunday Beach. Port O'Connor is in the direct path of migration for over 300 species of birds, making this a popular birding destination. Port O'Connor was charted in the late 1800s as a fishing village. It was originally called Alligator Head. The village was hit hard by hurricanes four times in history, but slowly rebuilt each time.
