Fun and well worth it!

We were able to see many dolphins during the dolphin watch/sunset cruise. Definitely worth the VERY reasonable price we paid! Captain and staff were knowledgable and friendly.

I bring a group of family and friends, usually about 18 or so, to South Padre Island every year. We stay for a week and do all kinds of fun things, but the highlight of the trip is the sunset and fireworks cruise on Murphy's Law! Captain Murphy and his crew always roll out the red carpet for us!

Isla tour (miss Hilda - manager) is the unethical and greedy company i have seen by far. Me and my family reserved the evening tour on phone the previous day. When we arrived 13 mins before the tour time at the ticket booth, they informed us that they are over booked and it is completely full. Although I saw them... More

My fiancé and I decided on a whim to do the Eco/dolphin tour,and I'm so glad that we did! Harley and the crew are fabulous. Had a great time, and was very informative. This is a must do on the island! Excellent price, also!

Had a bad start to begin with. Captain was waiting for his friends to leave the island. About five guys get there and run on without paying mind you. Boat went in circles... Cause that's where Dolphins were"&-%*. Captain totally ignores paying customers to chat with his friends also letting them steer the boat. Not impressed to say the least.... More

Had a great time on the dolphin tour. The Captain and his crew were great, it was very entertaining and educational as well. We saw plenty of dolphins and got the history of the shipping channel and the bay. Great price for a large family, we will come back and do it again next time we are in South Padre.
