Sunset dinner cruises or Snorkeling trips with lunch a must. A visit to South Padre Island or Port Isabel wouldn't be complete without a sailing trip on Southern Wave. Sit back, relax, and enjoy a cool drink while the South Texas sun puts on it's spectacular evening sunset show for you... this is the perfect way to end your day and start your evening. You can lay in the South Padre Island sun on our spacious trampolines or relax under the covered canopy. Most mornings, we'll snorkel in the waters of the Laguna Madre, northwest of South Padre Island with delicious lunch. Afternoons may be spent Dolphin Watching, Picnicking or working on your tan. We have a grill on board so we can make your trip to South Padre Island special. In the evenings, we have a Sunset Dinner Cruise - the Chef grills an all-u-can eat Beef and Chicken fajita dinner picnic buffet style, grilled fish, jumbo grilled shrimp as appetizer, all you can drink bottled water and sodas, the hostess puts out fresh cut fruit platter, the musician plays great music. Of course in the summer, the Friday night fireworks are not to be missed.

This is just a slow cruise in the bay riding past condos and houses but it is relaxing. The service is great and when we went it wasn't very crowded. Lisa is the hostess and makes it very enjoyable.

$42 / person including nice grilled lunch & 3 hours on boat. A bargain! Within 30 min of departing dock we were snorkeling! Sure not much to see underwater...some shells/sea grass/small fish but was fun anyway! I will be back again to do this again...More

Went on the snorkeling trip . Staff was really nice. Lunch is included hamburgers and hot dogs. It's a little harder for smaller children to do.

Wow! What a way to end a day - you board a nice, large catamaran, there's mellow guitar and vocal live music to accompany your conversation. You push off as the sun is starting to get lower in the sky, you have a few BYO...More

Wife and I went on the sunset dinner cruise at the end of June. It was not too crowded and the music and food were great, Service was very good. Well worth the money.
