Highly recommend the sunset cruise and the port of Brownsville tour. The captain and crew are great and will answer your questions . Enjoyed the tours immensely very affordably priced.

The crew was amazing and very knowledgeable. We saw a bunch of dolphins, including mamas and little ones that come right up to the boat. Same with the gulls and pelicans. Absolutely worth the trip.

We didn't do the sunset cruise sorry I can't give a good answer. But the boat is rather small probably 50'. There was about 20 people on our excursion and plenty of room to walk around, sit, be alone.
