ARANSAS PASS - It's called the Aransas Queen Casino and floated into the Tarpon Shores Marina just two days ago. The Aransas Queen will sail six days a week, with both day and evening cruises, as well as special events for holidays.
But this may not be the only attraction coming to this area. KRIS reported that there could be a total of three phases, including adding new boat slips and a beach club.
The casino boat is 155 feet long and will have over 200 Las Vegas-style slot machines with 12 table games.
The Aransas Queen is expected to begin operations at the beginning of March.
