It is illegal to drive in a Texas waterway for sure, and obviously no trespassing. I don't exactly remember how it works, it's been awhile since I looked into this exact same thing. But any and all public is owned by the state, and I am pretty sure no motor vehicles are allowed on unless otherwise stated. not 100% on the last bit, but I think thats how it works with public property

If you ferry over to Crystal Beach, which is pretty neat, you are allowed to drive on the beach down there with a permit.

I don't remember who, but I remember someone talking about there are dunes over near High Island I never looked into that but you never know.

There is DSO or Down South Offroad near Baytown of somewhere down south I haven't been to that either but I have heard of it.

Down on the west side end of the island, at the San Luis pass, there is allowed off highway access. It is posted that is is legal.
