Amazing and Family Friendly Firework Shows
There’s no doubt that the best place to watch a fireworks show is on a boat with the open night sky spread above you. Our South Padre Island Fireworks Cruise caters to this fantasy by giving guests this exact opportunity.
The Laguna Madre Bay has never looked so gorgeous as the dazzling display of pyrotechnics reflects across it.
Unlike many of our competitors, Breakaway Cruises aims to please families and folks who want to take it easy. You won’t have to worry about ear-splitting music on repeat or unruly behavior from inebriated guests when you sail with us.
The cruises we take on our U.S. Coast Guard-approved boats boast a fun yet leisurely atmosphere that families have come to know and love!
When Our Cruises Occur and What To Bring
Breakaway Cruises’ fireworks tours leave the port at 7:30 PM on Tuesdays and Fridays, from Memorial Day to Labor Day(Summer months). The show begins at 9:15 PM.
Our boat tours last a total of two and a half hours. Aside from major holidays, we have weekly shows every Tuesday and Friday nights. We offer specially prepared shows for three major holidays:
Memorial Day (May 30)
The 4th of July
Additionally, the only things you need to bring with you are a camera to capture the memories and appropriate clothing (depending on the weather). We also have beverages available for purchase on our incredible cruises.
Fireworks Aren’t the Only Star of the Show!
While our South Padre Island Fireworks Cruise features a brilliant exhibition of beautiful colors that explode across the night sky, there are other benefits included with these boat tours:
See the Dolphins at Play – Oftentimes, guests will get to see our unique Laguna Madre dolphins splash and play as we set sail to the colorful pyrotechnics.
Take a Sunset Cruise – Because we depart from the port at 7:30 PM, our customers will also get to see the dazzling sunset over South Padre Island. Believe us when we say our firework shows aren’t the only marvelous lights you’ll see in the skies!
Though the firework shows are the featured aspect, there are many more perks that come with our Fireworks Cruises in South Padre Island!
Excited to see the best of the Laguna Madre and an incredible firework show, too? Reserve a spot on Breakaway Cruises South Padre Island Fireworks Cruise!
The crew was great. Captain Woody, Elias, and Chris were great. We got to see many dolphins near the boat. The sunset was spectacular!! Also, I saw the space x facilities from the boat as well as the coast guard blimp.
Such a lovely cost affordable experience! We saw so many dolphins on our cruise. The narrator/announcer had such great humor. My husband and I and our friends had a great time, would most definitely recommend this to anyone looking for this type of activity!
Had such a blast, saw many dolphins very close to the boat, the guys were fun, the music was great, great cruise timing, they took us in last minute booking and it wasn’t crowded. My -⭐️ is for the alcohol drinks, the piña colada was super sweet that I had to toss it. Other than that, we had the best experience ever and got good photographs.
We purchased tickets for the SPI Christmas Parade and did not receive what Breakaway advertised. We were to have coffee, hot cocoa, cookies and rolls. The boat was out of cookies, coffee and hot cocoa before the excursion began or shortly thereafter. Additionally, one bathroom on the boat was not to be used, but there was no sign on the door informing guests not to use it. The “working” bathroom had no soap for washing hands. We were very disappointed in the evening that Breakaway provided its paying customers.
Best Charter service on The Gulf Of Mexico. Nobody does it better. Courtesy staff and extremely knowledgeable guides. They also offer Charters for all Space X Launches in Boca Chica. Choose Breakaway Cruises before any other company for the Tours & Private Charters!!
Breakaway Cruises provided an unforgettable deep sea fishing experience! Joe was very accommodating from setting up the fishing trip to recommending other island activities. Captain Luis & first mate Rick were very knowledgeable & professional during the entire fishing trip. Thank you Breakaway Cruises!
Dolphin tour was good. 5 star. Booking was easy. Boat was clean. Crew was friendly, attentive, and informative. We saw lots of dolphins.My only complaint is we tried to book snorkeling twice and both times it got cancellked less than an hour before departure for lack of participation leaving us no time to book alternatives.
This place is excellent. My friend and I have done the bay fishing, fireworks sunset cruises, and snorkeling. The captains and deck hands are always on top of it. Very friendly and knowledgeable people. Even the gals that answer the phone are personable and take time to answer questions, etc...they offer a Port of Brownsville tour as well and we can't wait to book that over the winter months.
The Dolphin Cruise was a great experience. The crew was great - very friendly and knowledgeable. Captain Roy and Anthony were very professional. We did see a few dolphins although I had hoped to see more.
Can't start /leave a review with zero stars. We had 2 "excursions" which were booked in advance and Breakaway Cruises called us a generous 1 hr before each one to advise us they could not honor our bookings. Could not rent us the 2 jet skis we paid for due to an employee medical issue and they would not be taking the boat out for the sunset dolphin cruise either. Too late to book anything else and will definitely not be trying this company again.
Took the Sunset Dolphin Watch the crew were AWESOME everything ran on-time. Capt Chris was very funny...he could take his schtick on the road he was sooooo funny. Being on the water and learning about the local history was very interesting. We saw some Dolphin out on the yonder, but even if there weren't any Dolphin the boat ride was super fun and we didn't even have drinks. This is a MUST DO for your list......I highly recommend Breakaway Cruises.
We had a great time when we went 09/23 on our 2pm trip that we went back to the 7pm trip for the same day! Captain Luis, first mate Ricky and his son aj helped us with anything we needed quickly. It was a great experience we will be back soon and hopefully with the same crew!
Had an amazing experience with Breakaway Cruises! We went Snorkeling, Bay Fishing & Jet Skiing! Loved everyone we met, everyone was so kind & pleasant! The Fish-Whisperer was awesome as well as his crew! Definitely would recommend to anyone on the Island or while you are visiting! 🌊👙🌺🤿⛵️✨
We had a wonderful time on our snorkeling trip with Breakaway Cruises. The Captain and the crew were pleasant, knowledgeable, and helpful. Especially when fellow passengers lost their phone and car keys while in the water. Crew members actually entered the water to help the poor couple try to find their items.We saw numerous fish while snorkeling. We saw Catfish, Puffer fish, Silver Perch, and Spotted Seatrout. The schools of Bluestriped Grunts were so curious and swam with us. Tip: don't move around, pull your arms close to your body. They will surround you and get close enough to touch.The snorkeling boat trip was the highlight of our South Padre trip, and we highly recommend making Breakaway Cruises your choice for water adventures.
Went on a sunset dolphin cruise and it was great! The boat was clean and in good condition. The crew was a lot of fun and kept things interesting. Plus, we got to see lots of dolphins right next to the boat. 🙂
Booked a fishing trip with them on Monday for Wednesday. Bought fishing license for 1 day. They said they had enough people for the trip already. Called the next day to tell us it is cancelled. Rebooked for following day. Called 1 hour later and said it was cancelled. Too late to cancel fishing license. So no fishing trip and out $32 for a fishing license not used… these people suck.
WORST FISHING TRIP I HAVE EVER BEEN ON. The “captains” were very uninviting!!They kept hitting me in the head with sticks, very unapologetic. They also cut the trip 2 hours short. I had the worst time ever, I would never recommend going on a fishing trip with this company!!
Amazing!!! Captain Luis and first mate Anthony are super cool. Perfect for families even small children even special needs they were so patient with my child he was scared to get off the boat but when he did we had a blast!!! The water is so clear!!!! Fresh fruit and lemonade as free refreshments!!! What a nice surprise. The price was very reasonable and they even offer veteran discount!!!!
What a great time. Gilbert was amazing. He guided us on the jet ski and had a blast. Very informative and great people skills. He had knowledge of the island and guided us to other adventures. He suggested other tours and adventures that y’all have. Seems like a great employee. Thanks for making this part of our vacation special.
My entire family was able to go and enjoy. Well looked after and enjoyed music with we had our adventure. Consistently asked if we were doing good. Had drinks and enjoyed watching the landscape and dolphins. A great time was had by all.
We went on the snorkeling trip with Captain Chris. He was an excellent captain! He was very knowledgeable and so funny! The first mate and him were great guides! They also provide full mask snorkels, which were pleased to see for especially first-timers! The snorkeling was great! We saw a bunch of fish, pufferfish, stingray, jellyfish and crabs. The water was so clear and we were able to collect a lot of shells. Great trip!
We booked a snorkeling trip while at SPI and it was amazing. It was an early morning trip so there was only us and 2 other people on the trip and it was perfect. Chris was awesome, cracking jokes with us throughout the whole trip, he made the trip so much better. Definitely book your snorkeling trip with these guys, you won't regret it!
Accidentally booked this dolphin tour instead of another tour I usually do but was greatly surprised. We saw a some dolphins, received history lessons, and I even got to drive the boat. It also turns into a party boat and all the guests were able to take some pics on the bow. Will definitely choose this tour again next year!
Breakaway Cruises for the win!!! We came down to see the SpaceX Starship Launch and they did a cruise out to the middle of the bay to see it and it was the best view possible! They also did a great job of splitting everyone up between two boats so we weren’t very crowded, and that was super appreciated. The entire staff was incredibly friendly before, during, and after the cruise and I couldn’t recommend them more. Thanks so much for a great time!
Breakaway Cruises was a great cruise to take. Our dinner and drinks were good. The captain and crew were very knowledgeable on sea life, Port of Brownsville, the ships on the channel, etc. We saw a lot of dolphins that swam along with us through the channel. I would definitely recommend going on this cruise. It is for any age. Do bring a jacket and blanket if it is a bit chilly out. We had seats on the 2nd level so we could be in the sun and see further.
Went on the deep sea fishing charter. I must first say, you have picked the best captain to work for you. He was a phenomenal captain. He was energetic, engaging and made the trip great. He took us to the perfect spot for fishing. Everyone on the boat caught their limit of fish very quickly. It was very exciting. A few of us in our party unfortunately got sea sick and he was very kind about it. On our way back to the dock, we had a wonderful dolphin show. The captain also offers to breakdown the fish for you, which was such a blessing as we are here on vacation. Our captain suggested a place to take the fish, that would prepare it for dinner (Joe's Oyster Bar). So glad we listened because it was amazing. From start to finish, this day is one we will remember forever.
Daniel was really great with our kids and was also knowledgeable about the sea life they pulled into the boat! I think we had the most fun talking with these guys and the dolphins were just a bonus. We will return! JJ was great too!
We went snorkeling for the first time out here. The boat ride was amazing and so were the crew Greg and Caesar. We went in June and the water was a little murky but other than that we had a blast. Highly recommend this!
The Easter fireworks cruise was awesome. We saw a lot of dolphin, the sunset was incredible and being on the water is definitely the best place to view the fireworks. The chicken fajita dinner was great with fajitas, rice, beans, and fruit and beverages included. Jeff and the rest of the crew made sure we had everything we needed. The bathrooms were clean. The Getaway is definitely the best boat for these type of trips. I recommend Breakaway for all their trips.
