We booked the 7:00 sunset dolphin tour. Captain Murphy charges 10.00 for a cruise every place else charges 20.00 or more for. At the end of our week in South Padre my wife and I both said it was the best money we spent on our trip. I was skeptical, but we saw 15-20 dolphins. 3 or 4 ran along... More

We went on the dolphin watch at sunset for an hour. We were greatly surprised for the price. The crew was fun and knowledgable. We got amazing pictures. They answered all our questions and they gave us good recommendations for places to see in the island. So we decided to go on another ride with them, the fireworks party boat.... More

Took 5 families with kids on the Murphy's law for Off Shore Fishing, Dolphin Watches and Fireworks Cruise. Not sure who had the most fun, kids or adults. Truly the best boat in all fleets across the island. Already planned our next years trip!

We have been on a few sunset cruises before but never one with music, lights and fireworks! WOW! This was by far the best one! We don't drink/party and most of the other people on this boat did. However, it was still a great time getting to listen to the music and cruise the ocean. And once the sun set,... More

On our family vacation we set on the "Murphy's Law" to watch the fireworks and enjoy some music. The party aspect of the trip really wasn't for us. After everyone got drunk it started to be entertaining. The first two hours or so was LONG. I found myself starring at my watch wondering when this will end. Then night fell... More

My wife, nephew and I had a great time on the dolphin watch! Staff was nice and courteous. The captain was funny and informative. They even brought up some sea life from the ocean floor and let the children touch and take pics with it. Overall, I would definitely recommend them to anyone!

My husband I show up at 6:30p.m. For the cruise and no one was there. We called the woman back and she informs me there won't be a trip tonight. a... More
