My husband and I purchased the Dolphin Watch Cruise for 2 on Groupon and it was worth it. We went in the 1:30 PM one and got to see dozens of dolphins very close. Great experience!

Went on the Historical Warship Tour 4 hour tour with meal and beer provided it started out rainy & cloudy day but was a great day meeting and talking with other people from other states. The service more than great and it's got even better when food was ready. Would do this again if we come back to SPI

The boat holds about 40 or so people and is crewed by 3 - the captain, 1st mate and cook. We left the dock and immediately were offered free beer and soft drinks. The trip up the channel was pleasant and informative. We got to look at the inner port of Port Isabel and out into the main channel. Oil... More

We took the eco-tour with another couple with Breakaway Cruises at South Padre Island. It was breathtaking. Captain Mike and his first mate Radar, just kidding Joe -- Radar, with one blue and one brown eye, is Captain Mike's beautiful Australian sheepdog pup, were first rate; friendly and professional. Captain Mike patiently maneuvered the boat to get us the best... More

I liked the fact that our boat was smaller than the other dolphin watch boats because that meant less people. Our captain and our host we're both great. Lots of laughs and a nice easy going atmosphere. Our 8 year old daughter loved it too. We saw dolphins and the Eco tour portion was lots of fun too.

My family and I absolutely enjoyed every second of our ride. Captain Mike and Co captain where very informative, friendly, knowledgeable, funny and entertaining. My children were able to get up close and personal with the sea creatures that were captured by the net that was pulled in. They learned about these various creatures and were able to touch and...

We took the dolphin watch sunset cruise and everyone had a great time. Our original booking was cancelled due to weather. There was good communication about the cancellation and rescheduling but when we arrived they had no record of our reservation. Luckily they weren't full and the cruise was great! Our guide's name was Mike and he did a great... More

The parsailling was amazing because they actually take you 600 ft and I have done parsailling before but it was only 300ft. The dolphin watch was okay because if you didn't actually hear someone say there one is you would have missed the dolphins. I was expecting it to be a certain area they would have taken us to see...
