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.

I've never been fishing before so when I saw the groupon for their bay fishing tour I though why not, lets try this! I'm glad I did because it was totally worth it. All the equipment is included in the price and they let you bring on your own food and drink which is a plus. We caught a few... More

A friend and I did the dolphin watch tour on Isla Tours the other night. It was only $12 and you can bring your own cooler with food and drinks on board. The boat is nothing fancy, but the guide knew a lot of information on the island and of course we were able to see plenty of dolphins. There... More

We rented the Boat to do a Boat Party on spring break at SPI. The staff was amazing, they help you all the time. We all enjoyed our little party with the amazing tour. If you need to throw somewhat a different kind of party I really recommend you this tour.
