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..

I write this review with a little apprehension, I really like Southern Wave and the concept. I have taken cruise trip twice. 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

Had a blast on the sunset dinner cruise. Food was delicious. First mate really worked her butt off by herself for all those aboard. Menu served was ample and filling.

We took the snorkeling trip and had the best time of our entire weekend. The captain of the boat and the hostess were super hospitable and fun to be with. They created a great atmosphere that relaxed all of us customers which made it easier to interact with each other instead of just sticking with our little group of friends.

Charted the Southern Wave for our wedding rehearsal dinner. Everyone had a great time and the food was great too. They take you only on the bay side so the ride is smooth and you get to see all the nice houses, very enjoyable time. Shrimp appetizer was a big hit, fajitas were also great, only small issue was the... More

I had scheduled a snorkeling trip for my sister's birthday & we were both pretty excited. I received a call early in the morning of our scheduled trip, telling me that they would not be doing the snorkeling trip due to the waters not being clear enough. First thought, "Bummer!" But then I was told they would honor the snorkeling... More

She would have gotten married on the Southern Wave except it only holds 40 people. So to wind the week of wedding parties up we booked the entire Southern Wave for just our friends that had... More
