Things to do in South Padre Island, Texas

A South Padre Island vacation isn't complete without the following activities. 

Dolphin Tours
These cruises are a great way to learn about the island and the ecosystems in the area. This unique experience gets guests up close and personal with some of the most stunning marine life in the world. Dolphins are one of the most intelligent and sought-after creatures, and experiencing dolphin watching in their natural setting is a once-in-a-lifetime experience that you absolutely should not pass up on. During your trip, you may see wildlife such as fish, birds, sea turtles, and more! On the cruise that we offer,  your guide will be local, knowledgeable, and personable, allowing you to get the best info and tour experience. 

Paddleboarding
Explore the waters of the Gulf of Mexico around South Padre Island from a personally rented stand up paddleboard. These paddleboards will give you the opportunity to experience the water and marine life up close and personally.  You will see the gorgeous waves crashing and rolling and feel the motion of the water as it rushes towards the shore. You may even catch a glimpse of some fun-loving dolphins or maybe see a school of bustling fish below the water's surface. 

Deep Sea Fishing
There are so many opportunities for fishing on South Padre Island! Anglers of all ages and abilities will find something that they love. Deep sea anglers will have the chance to catch barracuda, tuna, grouper, snapper, amberjack, wahoo, kingfish, and shark! You will also see other times of wildlife along the way. After the trip, you can take your catch to a local restaurant and have them cook it for you. These trips are the perfect way to see the gulf while having an adventure of a lifetime. 

Shopping
South Padre Island offers a wide variety of shopping for people of all interests. Most stores are along Padre Boulevard! You can hang out on the beach and national seashore, grab a bite to eat at one of the many restaurants, and shop until you can't carry anymore. Check out various beach gear shops like dive shops, water sports stores, or surfboard rentals. If you are looking for new clothes, you can find plenty of swimsuits, casual clothing, sunglasses, or dresses. Of course, you can't travel to a place as cool as South Padre Island without taking home a few souvenirs; that's why the island has a ton of gift shops and local boutiques! Purchase seashells, local hand-made jewelry, decor, or even food! 

Bike Rentals
Rent a bicycle for 24 hours or 48 hours; each option gives you ample time to see the sights. The bikes that we offer are delivered directly to your hotel, so you do not need to stress about logistics. You can simply climb on the bike and ride off for a South Padre Island, TX adventure!  The bikes that you will rent are comfortable and have plenty of sizes. All fees are included in your price. The island is relatively small so a bike is a great way to see the area in a more personal way. 
If you wanted, you could even ride to Port Isabel or Laguna Madre.
