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.

My wife received a gift from a friend that took us on a sunset dinner cruise, hosted by Southern Wave Sailing Charters. There was music, fish jumping and a sunset to take your breath away. Dinner was good and the service was even better.

Wonderful time. Sail was up, but we motored along the shore. Great views of the houses on the shore on one side and the setting sun on the other. Late July, but the breeze kept the temperature very comfortable. The boat was full, but it...More

The captain and crew were great. The grilled shrimp was very good. The fajitas were not. The tortillas were cold and hard. The meat was not very flavorful. Because of the awning over the boat, it wasn't easy for everyone to find a place to...More

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.
