The boat captain Brady is a great guy. It was a somber moment but I know everyone did enjoy it. Saw multiple dolphins and being a smaller boat gave us a personal experience. WE WILL BE BACK!!

Highly recommend the private sunset cruise. Brady was a great guide who was able to answer our many questions. We enjoyed dolphin watching, cruising the bay and beach combing. Sadly, mother nature did not provide a beautiful sunset, but we still had a great time. As a bonus, we stayed for dinner and live music at Lobo Del Mar restaurant after our cruise. Loved the food and atmosphere. A wonderful evening.

We booked a sunset cruise with the assurance (thru the 3rd party booking company who spoke to SPI supposedly) that the Captain would wear a mask since the children are unable to get vaccinated. Upon arrival the very young man at the desk was initially cordial but when we checked in he turned exceedingly rude and sarcastic. He asked us if we had been in the restaurant and did we see all the Trump signs? He said they would not conform to ‘our policy’, and that none of them were vaccinated and were never going to be vaccinated. We told him it was a safety issue with the children, it was not about politics, and he was nasty about it. I have not encountered such atrocious customer service in quite some time. If you enjoy being spoken to like you are trash then absolutely book with them, if not, STAY AWAY.

Hi Vicki, please keep in mind we are able to go back and review video footage and call recordings of all events. It seems that events have been "dramatized." I have recognized that you emailed us twice and there was also a call from Viator with you on the other line. All three times you told us you want our employees to wear a mask we responded "No, we DO NOT mandate our captains or employees to wear a mask per Texas Gov. Greg Abbott's current policy/mandate. And then you still confirmed the reservation on your own." As you entered our premises you were asking employees of ours if they had been vaccinated....That is HIPAA Violation! If our customers would like to mask, double mask, triple mask, or face shield they are welcome to do so. Thank God we live in America 😊

My wife and I wanted to get out of the house to celebrate our anniversary (and to forget about COVID for a while), so we booked their “private sunset cruise”. It turned out to be just what we needed. Brady, our boat Captain, was friendly, polite, helpful, and incredibly knowledgeable. Not only did he know a lot about the area, but he knew all the right places to see the wildlife (like dolphins)! The restaurant was great too between the plentiful portions and tastiness of the food and drinks. We would happily go back again! 5/5!

The only hiccup was with TripAdvisor. When we tried to boon through them they said the excursion was booked through the week. When we called SPI directly, we were able to book our trip without issue.

I booked three activities with SPI - the first was the Sunset Cruise.
The week we stayed at South Padre (mid April) the sky was often cloudy and foggy.

When we checked in for the sunset cruise, I wondered what we would do since there was no chance of a visible sunset.

Our captain, Brady, knew exactly what to do. He asked us what we enjoyed doing at South Padre - and we answered “checking out the birds”. So Brady organized a replacement activity for the missing sunset “on the fly”. He took us to Bird Island - a bird-only venue inaccessible by land. There we saw flocks of cormorants, herons and roseate spoonbills from our boat as he slowly circled the island. Amazing - and we didn’t even know it existed.

Brady also found a pod of dolphins that we watched for awhile. It was a much better outcome than watching a sunset.

Brady was a terrific captain for our little adventure. Along the way he explained features about the island, lagoon and their history. Very knowledgeable and personable young man. We thoroughly enjoyed our time with Brady and SPI.
