The captain and deckhands were great! Brought cocktails to you, did some trolling to show the kids some other sea life. Let the kids handle the fish responsibly. Saw some dolphins and gave some info on the dolphins & island! So worth the trip! Had a great time...thanks guys!!

It was interesting to fish with my family seeing dolphins follwing our boat. Despite my children couldn't catch fish but it was great experience in fishing on the boat.

Nice tour around Port Isabel and the bay side of South Padre Island. The good ole boy tour guide made several racist remarks regarding Mexico and Mexicans that detracted from the experience.
