Breakaway Cruises on South Padre Island

For your next vacation, consider booking a trip to South Padre Island. The island is located off the shore of Texas and is known for its soft, sandy beaches, and warm, calm waters of the Gulf of Mexico.

Spend your days relaxing on the beach with a drink in your hand or play a friendly game of beach volleyball. For a more adventurous day rent a kayak, jet ski, or boat and explore the waters off South Padre Island. The Gulf of Mexico is known for its fishing, or if you’re lucky, you may see a pod of SPI’s resident dolphins.

Breakaway Cruises on South Padre Island has been offering fun, adventure-filled trips for more than 20 years. Learn about the marine wildlife that lives in the waters off the shores of SPI, snorkel in the waters off the shore, fish in its deep blue waters, or go for a tandem parasailing ride.

Dolphin Watch & Eco Tours

Breakaway Cruise offers Dolphin Watch & Eco Tours twice a day in the waters off SPI. The cruise lasts for two hours and will take you across the bay where you will get to see dolphins up close and personal. You’ll also get a chance to see the marine animals that live on the ocean floor when the crew members use a special net to bring up the sea creatures. The crew members will help you identify all of the animals, which are released after each lesson.

Deep Sea Fishing with Breakaway Cruise

If you want to give fishing a shot, then take one of Breakaway Cruises’ deep-sea fishing trips. The Isabella Fishing Team will take you out on a 65’ catamaran to some of the of the best fishing spots where you will have the chance to catch red snapper, kingfish, shark, dorado, and more. The trip is great for both beginners and advanced fishermen alike. All equipment and bait are included, and you can bring a soft cooler on board with drinks and snacks.


For a truly adventurous day, book a single or double parasailing trip. Get a birds-eye view of South Padre Island 600 feet above the water.
