THE UNIQUE DOLPHIN TRIBES OF LAGUNA MADRE
What makes Breakaway Cruises dolphin watching trips the best in South Padre Island? The dolphins themselves, of course! Over the course of hundreds of thousands of years, the Laguna Madre has become a fascinating and diverse ecosystem, home to a number of different species of flora and fauna – dolphins being one of the stars. Additionally, the particular tribe of dolphins that live in the South Padre Island area has grown smaller in size compared to their more deepwater brethren.
Many of the fish available to catch in our fantastic bay fishing trips also find themselves meals of our local dolphins. It is very common to see a pod of dolphins, old and young, catch and share Sheepshead fish for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. Listen to them communicate in their unique dolphin language as they dash across the waves.
There’s not really another experience quite like getting up close and personal with these incredible animals.
