Owner description: 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, jumbo grilled srimp 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..

My wife and I enjoyed the sunset cruise very much. Terry did a great job singing and adding ambiance to the experience. Sam and our pilot made the crew feel at ease, and Diego the chef provided a tasty meal. The sunset was spectacular! We highly recommend this attraction! Best regards, Brian and Fran Freese

This was our first time taking this cruise. We were sweetly surprised at how much we enjoyed it. The other people on the boat were friendly and every one seemed happy. The staff was great, accommodating and professional. The food was good, with plenty left over, a good musician singing with his guitar, who I felt was serenading us, and... More

We took this sailing cruise for our 28th anniversary and thoroughly enjoyed the entire trip! The crew was friendly and courteous and the food was delicious... would highly recommend this for anyone looking for a relaxing evening watching the sunset on the Gulf. Looking forward to coming again soon!

I plan to go back shortly, as company is coming along and it is a unique thing to do. What I want to say to the owners is "my first trip" 1 year ago was better than my... More
