    Stop At: Sea Ranch Marina, 33256 State Park Rd 100, South Padre Island, TX 78597, USA

    The tour begins with the crew of the Double Sunshine dragging a net along the floor of the Laguna Madre and bringing up live specimens of marine life. The sea life is then put into our living salt water laboratory where a Crew Member gives a presentation on what has been brought up in the net before the specimens are returned to the water. After the Eco Tour presentation the Double Sunshine continues the excursion following the dolphin pods around the Laguna Madre.

    Duration: 2 hours

    Stop At: Port Isabel Lighthouse, 421 E Queen Isabella Lighthouse Square, Port Isabel, TX 78578-2412

    From the water, we stop to admire the Port Isabel Lighthouse. Built in 1851, the lighthouse's stationary light used to be visible up to sixteen miles away. Although no longer in service, visitors can still stop by the lighthouse as a historic structure.

    Duration: 15 minutes

    Stop At: Isla Blanca Park, 33174 State Park Road 100, South Padre Island, TX 78597-6409

    Isla Blanca Park is a popular hangout spot for the local bottlenose dolphins. With waters chock-full of small fish, this is the perfect spot to watch dolphins eat and play.

    Duration: 20 minutes

    Stop At: Jetties South Padre Island Tower, 1 Padre Blvd, South Padre Island, TX 78597, USA

    The jetties at the end of South Padre Island are another great spot to watch dolphins hang out, eat and play. They frequently pass the jetties to traverse between Laguna Madre and the Gulf of Mexico.

    Duration: 20 minutes

    Pass By: South Padre Island, South Padre Island, Texas

    We will be passing a large portion of South Padre Island on the tour. Filled with fishing spots, beaches and seafood restaurants, SPI is a favorite destination for those in-the-know about South Texas. And of course, it's our home!

    Stop At: SpaceX Launch Facility, 52448-, 54298, Boca Chica Blvd, Brownsville, TX 78521, USA

    Spacex is a relatively new addition to the area. From the water, we can see the build and launch sites at Boca Chica. Frequently, prototype rockets, such as one of the many versions of Starship, will be sitting on the launch pad awaiting testing. These prototypes are clearly visible from the water. Brownsville is gearing up to be a major space port in the coming years!

    Duration: 15 minutes
