Our party of 9 booked an evening Dolphin Encounter cruise for Tuesday evening, but when we checked in we were informed the boat had been double booked. We were told if we could come back tomorrow, they would give us the cruise for half price; not a problem for a savings of $125. When we showed up the next evening,... More

My girlfriend and I had an excellent trip on the Mustang on the $25 dolphin and sunset cruise. Both crew members were very engaging and entertained and kept the adults and children entertained throughout. Trip included a tour round the bay following dolphins and then watching them surf the bow of a tanker coming in. Followed by more touring and... More

We took the 6P - 7:30P dolphin & nature boat tour on a Friday night. There was only 10 people on the boat (it can hold 80). We paid $25 for adults and $20 for kids. We had lots of laughs. The deck hand, we called him "One Eyed Pete" since he was missing an eye from a shark fishing... More

We booked a trip on the Island Queen and was told that it would be going out. Upon arrival we were told that the boat did not "make" and would not be going out. Save your time and money and go to a pier. This business is a joke.

We were staying in Port Aransas for the week of Sept. 15-19. We heard from the manager of our hotel that Woody's Sport Center was the place to go to rent a jet ski. We called first to get the rates and times. The lady who answered was friendly and told us the rates. So the next day we went... More

I have personally been on this boat at least 10 times in the last few years, and it has always been hit or miss on the fishing. I've caught a giant red fish off the boat and also left empty handed more often then not. The one consistent thing on the boat is that they try to catch fish by... More

We have now gone on a Woody's dolphin cruise twice and loved it each time. My kids (4 and 7) remember as the highlight of our beach trip. Here's the deal: You go for a few hours on a big boat (2 levels) and you get to see dolphins playing in the water. At one point, there is a "pirate... More

Woody's Sports Center morning dolphin cruise turned out to be the highlight of our week in Port Aransas. All 8 in our party, including 4 children aged 6-13, enjoyed every minute. Chico, the first mate was on deck with us the whole time, while the captain, on the deck above kept a lookout for dolphins. We were thrilled to see... More

I have taken a few different dolphin tours in different cities but this was the best as it is was very kid friendly, a good amount of time and reasonably priced. We saw a ton of dolphins! The last 30 minutes of the trip, the first mate brought some local sealife on board (in a water tank) for everyone to... More

Reasonably priced $25 adults $20 for kids. My 5 year old daughter definitely enjoyed the Mustang watched plenty of dolphins, they had an open aquarium where she played with shrimp, baby fish, crabs, seahorses & other small sea critters. My husband and I had a blast as well. They allow you to take your ice chest, snacks, beer! To end... More
