The Port of Port Lavaca – Point Comfort, or simply the Port of Port Lavaca, is a seaport along the shores of Matagorda Bay, Texas (United States). It includes terminals at both Port Lavaca and Point Comfort, Texas. These terminals are connected to the Gulf of Mexico through the Matagorda Ship Channel (a conduit dredged through Matagorda Bay) and by rail via the Point Comfort and Northern Railway which connects to the Union Pacific Railroad.

The Port operates at a depth of 36 feet and a width of 200 feet. In November 2010, the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers authorized the Port to expand to a 44-foot depth and a 400-foot width; there are no current plans to do so.[1]
