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

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

We have going on the Dinner cruise for years. With the same awesome Captain Sean. We were on the island for my daughter's wedding. 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

Sam was a great waitress! We didn't have to get anything! The chef was great- food was wonderful. Totally worth the money to do this. Terry was fantastic with the music- great one man band. I can't even describe how great this was! I had a great birthday for sure! Thank you Southern Wave!

I have been snorkeling with Southern Waves twice now and it is an incredible experience. A nice short ride and an hour spent snorkeling then a wonderful meal of hamburgers and hot dogs and fresh fruit. This year we decided to try the sunset dinner cruise and was highly impressed. More food than you could possibly eat, live entertainment and... More

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
