My two 20- and 21-year-old sons rode in tandem parasailing and had a total blast! They specially commend Omar and Leo for their great skills and fun treatment.

Thank you Breakaway Cruises for the awesome hospitality and memories! I live here but do not get to make trips like this as much as I would like.... mainly went to entertain out of town guests, who also had an excellent experience! The kids absolutely loved it which had a lot to do with the whole crew being very friendly,... More

Given that most outfits seem to be poorly run in the area by people who often seem inebriated, Breakaway seemed to be the most professional of the ones we spoke to. The boats used seemed to be new and well-kept, and people were professional. Pricing was great too. Highly recommended.

We did the parasailing, dolphin watching tour, and a bay fishing tour and had wonderful experiences each time. Their prices are very reasonable for each of their services offered. The staff was amazing and very entertaining. We DEFINITELY recommend checking out this place!!!

I purchased ten tickets for friends and their family and for my entire family. We were told that the boat was going to be leaving at 4:30 so we cut our site seeing to rush over to their loading dock by 4:15 (as was asked by the guy who sold us our tickets). When we got there, we waited and... More

We were there this past weekend and loved it. We did the bay fishing tour and had a blast. We even saw some dolphins along the way. No luck catching any fish, but it was fun!! We would definitely recommend this to anyone coming down.

On this visit to South Padre we used Breakaway Cruises for our Dolphin Watch/Sunset/Fireworks Cruise. We had a nice time, but there were some issues. First, the boat we were on was obviously old. There was a pretty bad sewer like smell throughout the entire trip. Was it the bay itself or was it on the boat, i cannot tell... More
