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.. « less

My husband wanted to rent a wave runner and take our two kids out separately with him. We called another company that would not rent to him for an hour so he could swap the kids after 30 minutes. Southern Wave had no issues with him wanting to rent for an hour and even gave us a better deal since... More

My friend and I sailed last Friday night and it was one of the highlights of our trip. We flew in from Dallas that morning and spent a little time on the beach before the sunset/fireworks dinner cruise. We were some of the last folks on the boat due to a little trouble finding a parking spot but they steered... More

My wife and I went on the Sunset Dinner Cruise on a Monday night. We had an amazing time! The boat was not too crowded and atmosphere was very relaxed! There was a musician singing and playing the guitar and she was very good! The food the crew prepared was delicious and there was plenty for everyone aboard, don't be... More

We took the sunset dinner cruise the second week of July 2014. We did not know what to expect but saw there had been many good ratings on TripAdvisor so we booked the cruise in advance before we got to the Island. The cruise started out by letting the passengers board and pick their own spot on the boat which... More

We took the sunset dinner cruise on a Wednesday, so there wasn't a fireworks display which has fine. The singer and the staff were really nice and we had a really good time. Researched ahead of time and saw that it was BYOB, other passengers must not have known because they were looking to have some wine as well. I... More

They have a few different trips that me and my family took. Their Snorkel trip was a blast. The crew was very courteous, great with kids and very helpful. We saw some cool stuff that we have never seen before, not to mention they cook you lunch while you are out in the water. How cool is that? We were... More

My husband and I have done this sunset cruise 3 times and loved it every single time.. We even booked the entire boat for our wedding reception and they were so accommodating. They helped us with the cake and the toast. We are going back to SPI in August and we are definitely going to do another sunset cruise.
