We did the 8 hour fishing trip. We were suppose to leave at 8:00 am but did not leave till about 8:30. The reels.were in poor shape. Not even 1/2 spool of string on reels. Hooks old and dull. I feel the trip was pretty much an expensive boat ride. They seemed not to know where the fish were. Crew... More

On Tuesday we get another call and get rescheduled for Wednesday. On Wednesday we get a call and get rescheduled for Thursday. I proceed to ask for a refund since they keep... More

We took the Dolphin Watching/Eco cruise and it was great; everything was top-notch. Wilson conducted the Eco portion of the trip and did a superb job. We were on South Padre with our twin grandkids, a boy and a girl, 11 years old. It takes quite a bit to impress them, but they both commented on how good and how... More

We did the 8am Bay Fishing Tour on the July 4th weekend. Our experience on the tour was all positive. The receptionist at the desk was very nice during check-in - even though she was super busy. The boat personnel were friendly and helpful. We only went about 20 minutes from the dock, then we anchored and were all given... More

For our honeymoon my wife and I stayed at a nearby resort and did all of our activities with breakaway. We went water skiing, deep sea fishing, parasailing, and snorkeling. Everything was great and the prices were the best that we found in town. I would and have recommended this company to my friends.

Went on the morning eco cruise to see dolphins. We were able to see many dolphins and the crew did a good job of describing the "drag net catch".

I booked the bay fishing with Breakaway July 8, 2015. I had called the day before to ask about the fishing trip, cost, time available so forth. I booked it online cause it was $5 cheaper. It didn't make a difference if ticket holder was fishing or spectator. You book it online then you call Breakaway to tell them what... More

We bought the gold package. We did parasailing, bay fishing, snorkeling, Eco/Dolphin tour, and Jet Ski tour. Everything was amazing. All the crews were fun and engaging. Customer service is top of the line. Book with them and you will have the time of your life.
