Beach Bar Entertainment - there is only one - Leslie Blasing who can be seen all over the island and Boy, can she sing anything! Her greatest show is at Boomerang Billy's - home of the Electric Shovel - where she can between 1 and 4pm on Sat/Sun. Come and have a cocktail and a great time....(you can get a sandcastle lesson at the same time!)
And, while you are visiting you can join the International Idiots Club just to prove what everyone else knows about you. Its a great cause that has raised thousands for local charities and helped many people come to terms with being real idiots
Sea Turtle Inc - one of the finest sea Turtle rescue and rehab center's in the world - wait till you see your children's faces when they come face to face with a real live dinosaur! - An awesome experience.
Dolphin Watching and the Sea Life Center - A trip to South Padre Island would not be complete without a Dolphin watching trip with George and or Scarlet Colley. Guardians of the Laguna Madre Dolphins, and they are the only people who know all of the dolphin's names (really!). They can give you a lesson in just about everything on their great boats. Until you have had a dolphin look you in the eye you don't really get it! www.fin2feather.com
Thier Sea life center is run entirely from donations just like Sea Turtle inc
And of course Schlitterbahn, have a cocktail, float the river, ride the rapids and balance you life in your hands on the boogie bahn - great day out.
