This was one of our best experiences in South Padre Island. Our young child had an excellent time and the staff were extremely nice andfriendly and the air-conditioning cabin indoor was a relief from the heat.. We saw a lot of dolphins and we had a blast.

This cruise was awesome! They had a show for about 30 minutes prior to boarding that was really funny and enjoyable for all ages followed by the firing of a cannon. When we arrived on the ship we were greeted by pirates and all the children were given nametags. I was not expecting entertainment the entire cruise but there definitely... More

We took the pirate cruise and the boys loved it. The cast was funny and involved the kids all the time. Great trip I would recommend this to any age group.

My husbands birthday gift. 8hr cruise,took 3hrs to get to the spot, 30-45mins fishing. Lots of Red Snapper we couldn't keep and poor rigging for the poles the 'paying customers' used. Rods on the back of the boat were in Great condition-no one uses them. Captain's children did a lot of running around and got prime fishing spots on bow... More

Bought 7 tickets online (4 adults, 3 children) then called to confirm, no problems there. We ended up detouring to Pier 19 first as the address given here is technically correct, 1 Padre Blvd however the Black Dragon leaves from the other side of the causeway in Port Isabel. We were a few minutes late but it was no big... More

Took a family of 6- parents, 2 teenagers, and 2 children ages 7 & 9 to see the Pirate cruise. The entire family had a blast. The crew kept everyone entertained and drinks, snacks, and shade were offered throughout the cruise to keep everyone comfortable. Worth it at twice the price but glad it's not! Lol!

Did the 8-hour deep sea trip. Was told we would be targeting sharks, king, and maybe tuna. We would try and drift fish behind the shrimp boats once we found them. Took about 2 hours to find one, only 15 or so people fishing. Caught 1 king on the way out, but no luck at the first shrimp boat. Left... More
