We did the afternoon dolphin tour. There were only about 10 people on the boat. Captain Murphy was great in his ability to find the dolphins and keep them near the boat for plenty of photo opportunities. Great group of guys.

Definitely a highlight of our stay on S. Padre Island! On this two-hour tour you'll see dozens of dolphins swimming next to the big boat, plus get to hold and see lots of fish and sea-life they haul in with their net. You'll also be taken to south end of island by pier and Boca Chica where new SpaceX Center... More

Paid a online and called to confirm, just to get to dock to find a very non professional group who had booked a private tour. Paid 15.00 on line but was 10.00 at dock. Had to pay out of pocket to go on another boat that was leaving dock. Very disappointed, no one had records or knew anything. Was told... More

We visited the Island over the New Year holidays, and were in South Padre for six days. We wanted to do a Port of Brownsville Tour. When I called, I found the tours were only offered on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 9am-1pm. Weather caused the Tuesday tour to be canceled. Better weather was predicted for the Thursday date and the... More

This was our third outing on the Friday night fireworks cruise and once again it was very enjoyable. Trip consists of a dolphin search in the lower bay and then a trip to the upper bay (complete with D J music and a disco ball) for the fireworks. Great fun, all of the other cruise boat passengers wished they were... More

We went on the dolphin watch tour. (I didn't want to do the Eco one). But they added the Eco tour for ours. It was a very, very slow beginning. We 'had' to redo the netting because apparently we didn't catch anything the first time. We only spend maybe 20 min to look for dolphins. We only saw a few... More

First off, it's very affordable. I compared several of the local dolphin tours and this was by far the best for the money. $10 per person and it included dolphin watch and eco tour of the bay. Most other companies had these separate. We got on the boat and headed out to the bay near the bridge with the net... More

$44 for a family of 4 - we had an awesome time. It was the highlight of my trip. My 10 and 8 y/o loved seeing the dolphins and a sea animals they caught in their net. I would highly recommend this tour - its the best value.
