We booked an evening cruise and were very impressed with the trip, insight, and knowledge of Captain Cody and his assistant, Devon. The trip was amazing with great views. We are definitely planning a second trip already!

We had a great time evening Bay Fishing with Captain Cody and Carlos! We were a group of 4 adults and 4 kids. They were great to talk to and were wonderful with the kids. Everyone in our group caught something and had a blast. Will definitely be back!

This trip was very enjoyable. The Captain and his assistant were helpful with children and enjoyable to be with. We saw a few fish and the Captain informed us how to be safe.

I returned for some deep sea fishing with Breakaway and Captain Nick. I had gone bay fishing quite a bit of times but it does not compare to the deep sea adventure. My Wife Sylvia is my fishing partner but due to a bad experience with another local company she skipped this one. She would have loved it, and guess... More

My husband and I stayed in South Padre the last week of July and we booked Breakaway's Bronze Package. We got a very good price for the three activities. It's very convenient and you choose your own date and time for each activity. We went parasailing first off, and although we have previously done that in Mexico twice, it was... More

We did a little pre-investigation before our trip this year and found some coupons for the activities that Breakaway Cruises provides. We brought my wife's parents along with our two daughters, so 6 total in the group. First we bay fished with Brandon. He did a great job making sure everyone had fun and caught fish. It was a blast.... More

The crew was fun, knowledgable, helpful, well mannered, and patient. Captain John (great selection of music) narrated the trip with the assistance of first mate Ross (encouraging to panicked clients) The food and drinks were served with artistry and flair. Snorkeling at Diamond Reef, a walking excursion of Bath at Virgin Gorda, and our trip to the Soggy Dollar Bar... More
