If you use the ramp, you pay the fee. If you park away from the houses about 100 yards, you just put in your yak. No fee and there are no signs posted for private property. Actually, I think it's public land because I saw a sign saying don't mow the grass since it's wetlands grass. Maybe not. Regardless, no private property signs, and it's a good launch from the shore.
To me, dolphins, alligators, birds, etc...is what makes it pretty bad@zz. Do I like them scaring the crap outta me? No, but they don't so much anymore. It's pretty awesome watching dolphins fly out of the water 50 yards from you as if they were putting on a show at seaworld (or Sea -A- Rama for you older folks) doing belly flops - and I've seen this out at the Jetties at Sabine Pass. I've also seen them slap the water with their tail fin to stun the fish. Quite a site. Still waiting to see the gator eat something though.
Once you get better at kayaking, Sabine Pass Jetties can be quite a great time. Until then, go it slow and hit up the marshes at Keith Lake or find some Specs in the deeper part of Keith. Way back in the marsh, there may be some gators, so stay close to the open water for now until you become more comfortable.
