Fun cruise.

Captain Mike and Mate Jeremiah were very informative and friendly. We didn't have a pretty sunset but we saw lots of Dolphins. Very enjoyable.

Went on a dolphin watch cruise with Tavo and Captain Paul and had a great time! We were on our wedding anniversary and were acknowledged by Captain Paul on the way. We saw several Dolphins and had a great time! The sunset was covered by clouds but Captain Paul made it a great trip regardless. Highly recommend this cruise!

There are so many different dolphin cruises on the island. My advice is to stop looking and go with Breakaway Cruises! Captain Paul and his first mate were awesome! They knew what they were doing and made sure that everyone was having a good time. It is great for kids. Captain Paul made sure all the kiddos had a chance... More

My fiancé and I went to Breakaway Cruises to go parasailing. Neither of us had been before, so we were excited and nervous at the same time. Joe and Chris were so fun and really helped make our trip amazing. Thanks guys, we will definitely come back next time :)

We went on the dolphin cruise and although there was only 2 dolphins that popped up a few times - it was so fun when one of them came up under the boat to the front and started racing us! It was so cool! The captain and crew were so fun and friendly. A couple of us drove the boat... More

Wonderful trip, dolphins were beautiful and our captain was the BOMB !! He let my little cousin drive the boat for a while and she was so thrilled & excited! We took tons of pictures with him, and he had an outstanding personality throughout the ride. Thanks for the experience Paul ♡ blanca & steph

My husband and I got the package with parasailing, Bay fishing, and the Eco dolphin tour. It was so much fun and something different to look forward to each day of our trip. The parasailing was amazing and beautiful! You go with a group and are up in the air about 10mins each, total trip is about 1hr. It doesn't... More

Our RV group of 50 people enjoyed a 4 hour tour of the Brownsville Ship Channel starting at South Padre Island. We saw 3 aircraft carriers including the USS Constellation. The crew continuously served us unlimited soda, wáter and beer. Then they cooked our meal of grilled shrimp, grilled brats and sides with all-you can eat servings. Dolphin and bird... More
