This is a neat cruise for couples, this was a great deal, we had great food, the music was excellent, the views were spectacular. I can't enough good things about this trip. We decided to make this cruise an annual tradition.

Captain Tino and crew were top notch! They made you feel like family. Food was great and the cruise was perfect. When on South Padre Island make sure you take this dinner cruise.
