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.

Went on a sunset cruise. The crew (captain, mate, chef and guitar player) was super. boat was very clean and cozy. The food was fresh and delicious, complete with gulf shrimp, beef/chicken fajitas and fresh fruit. BYOB. Will definitely use their service again.

I heard that snorkeling on the island isn't the best in general because of the area itself so we just skipped that and went on the sunset dinner cruze. Food was amazing, they had a BBQ right on the boat with a variety of fajitas...More

The food was delicious and we met some amazing people aboard. It was the perfect scene given we saw the sunset while cruising and it's BYOB. We really enjoyed ourselves.

We bought a snorkel trip from groupon scheduled for 11am. Can we change it and apply that toward jet ski rentals? Snorkel reviews don't look too good.
