Sunset dinner cruises or Snorkeling trips with lunch a must. A visit to South Padre Island or Port Isabel wouldn't be complete without a sailing trip on Southern Wave. Sit back, relax, and enjoy a cool drink while the South Texas sun puts on it's spectacular evening sunset show for you... this is the perfect way to end your day and start your evening. You can lay in the South Padre Island sun on our spacious trampolines or relax under the covered canopy. Most mornings, we'll snorkel in the waters of the Laguna Madre, northwest of South Padre Island with delicious lunch. Afternoons may be spent Dolphin Watching, Picnicking or working on your tan. We have a grill on board so we can make your trip to South Padre Island special. In the evenings, we have a Sunset Dinner Cruise - the Chef grills an all-u-can eat Beef and Chicken fajita dinner picnic buffet style, grilled fish, jumbo grilled shrimp as appetizer, all you can drink bottled water and sodas, the hostess puts out fresh cut fruit platter, the musician plays great music. Of course in the summer, the Friday night fireworks are not to be missed.

We had a wonderful time. We did the sunset dinner cruise. Two hour cruise is just right. Food was just right. Entertainment was just right. Food cooked on board. We will do this cruise again.

The Southern Wave dinner cruise is a “must do” experience while visiting the island. The scenery along the bay is fascinating and the ride is relaxing and very pleasant. The dinner itself is first class with grilled shrimp appetizer and all you can eat beef or chicken fajitas. Mixed fruit and chocolate provided for dessert. You can bring your own... More

What a wonderful way to spend a relaxing couple of hours on the water and be pampered by First Mate Sam and the rest of the crew. Food was great and plentiful. Just remember to bring your own beverages and possibly a light jacket if the wind is blowing.

The ride on this catamaran was smooth sailing! Food was fresh and grilled to perfection. Our singer/guitar player really set the tranquil mood as we meandered along the bay and inlets for two hours. I recommend this as a "must do" on SPI.

Valentine's night cruise was wonderful! Singer/host (I think his name was Terry) was super. Loved his soft music. The fly boarding exhibit & Fire works was super entertainment. Grilled shrimp was wonderful, fajitas (stick to chicken) was good but could have used more veggies. Great fruit dessert. Serve Sam was AMAZING!!! She saw to our every need. Recommend it highly...

Terry did a wonderful job entertaining us with his guitar and songs. Sam was everywhere making sure we had all the drinks and food we needed. Diego provided a banquet of... More
