Rollover Pass


Isn’t that an interesting name? Rollover Pass (also known as Rollover Fish Pass) earned its name from the practice of smugglers who, from the days of Spanish rule through prohibition, avoided the Galveston customs station by rolling barrels of import or export merchandise (i.e., whiskey and rum) over the narrowest part of the peninsula.

Rollover Pass is a strait 200 feet wide, five feet deep, and more than 1,600 feet long across Bolivar Peninsula.

The Kleb Woods birding group went there to look at some shore birds.
