We took the four hour boat trip of the Brownsville harbour and to the Texas Gold Shrimp dock.
Lucky for us we had a beautiful sunny day although not hot. This cruise was purchased as a show special by friends of ours so we apparently got it at a reduced rate. The young people on the boat serving the chips and doing the talk did a good job. One fella spent most of the trip on his cell phone either playing games or checking messages--he certainly was not "engaged" in working for the tips. The young lady doing the general talk although as she admitted new did a very good job and was very informed about the pitfalls of farm raised shrimp as opposed to local fresh not farmed shrimp. Was the trip worthwhile?? Yes but the trip went out at 11 and we returned for "lunch" at three and it was slow being served and the reason was there were so many regular customers they could not get to us!! Poor!! They had all our orders before we left at 11 and they knew when the boat was returning so thumbs down on that part of the trip. I think reduce the cost of the trip and either supply boxed lunches or head out earlier and no lunch and decrease the cost some more.
