Have a glorious South Padre Island weekend adventure with a sunset or midday eco-cruise with Osprey Cruises! This Padre Boulevard company provides an introduction and overview of the ecology of Laguna Madre through a fun interactive cruise, placing a special emphasis on wildlife in the area. This professionally narrated cruise will give your group an extensive natural history lesson on the great estuary and all its inhabitants, from "fin, feather, shell, and hide." Experience dolphin life, sightsee the area and learn all about local wildlife and ecology as you experience the best Osprey cruises has to offer.
Choose between a weekend or a Tuesday and Thursday eco-cruise, or perhaps stay on Tuesday, Thursday, or Sunday 4:30-6 pm for the Happy Hour and Sunset Cruises, a local favorite. On these cruises you will be aboard the passenger yacht Osprey, a high profile cruiser well-suited for sightseeing. You will enjoy amazing panoramic views from the upper deck, allowing you to see for miles with binoculars. You will find no other view like this in South Padre Island!
During a cruise you will have amazing birdwatching opportunities (there are over 600 species in this area alone!), guaranteed dolphin sightings (there are hundreds of Atlantic bottlenose dolphins here), live observation and identification tanks, not to mention tons of local geological history. The crew will even bring a trawling net right to you, filled to the brim with sea life! Enjoy the air-conditioned cabin, restrooms, and amazing upper deck learning and viewing opportunities with Osprey Cruises!
