The Southern Wave is a large, stable and comfortable sailing Catamaran that is perfect for a leisurely day’s sail, an exciting afternoon of dolphin watching, or experience the breath-taking South Padre Island sunset over the water on one of the dinner cruises.
Sunset dinner tours, dolphin watches or snorkel trips aboard The Southern Wave are unlike any other boating experience on South Padre Island. Cruise under motor or sail around the Island on the spacious decks and trampolines.
Sun, fun and food are what The Southern Wave is all about and enjoy the relaxed atmosphere and professional crew. Trips are all inclusive except for alcohol. BYOB (bring your own beer) is accepted and complimentary sodas, bottled water and ice are always on board.
While on The Southern Wave catamaran, guests can lay suspended over the cool waters and under the warm sun on one of the spacious trampolines, or relax under the comfortable sundeck. Evening cruises on the Southern Wave are usually accompanied by talented local artists for on-board entertainment.
The Catamaran is also available for private charter and offers special rates for small groups, charities, schools and non-profit organizations. A smaller vessel is also available for charter for those interested in a private snorkeling venture to the north end of the Island.
The Southern Wave also offers other water recreational equipment. They have kayaks, two and four person paddle boats to rent by the hour.
Southern Wave also has 10 wave runners available to rent by the half hour. Proper identification is required. Southern Wave Catamaran dock is located at 201 W. Pike on South Padre Island. For more information, call (956) 772-7245.
