Deep Sea Fishing Vacation SPI Not-to-be-Missed Activities for the Family!
Ten Great Things To Do With The Family In SPI
Without a doubt the highlight of any trip to South Padre Island would be one of the amazing deep sea fishing SPI charters offered by MegaBite Sport Fishing Texas, but as the old adage goes, give a man a fishing trip and he will be happy, but give his family something to do as well, and he will get to go on his fishing trip!
Ok, so we might have made that one up, but the truth is that while deep sea fishing is great, there are also a lot of other fabulous things to do with the whole family in the SPI area.
Let's take a moment to look at some of these great attractions that are ideal for the whole family and can turn your fishing weekend into a truly rich and memorable family vacation.
Largest Outdoor Sandcastle in the USA
At Sand Castle Lessons you can not only tour a museum of amazing sand castle creations, but you can also see the largest Outdoor Sandcastle in the USA. In addition, you can also learn the art of sandcastle making, and even try your hand at building one of your own. Who among your family is the best sand building engineer and whose castle is destined to be gone with the tides? We encourage you to take the challenge!
Dolphin Research & Sealife Nature Center
The Dolphin Research & Sealife Nature Center on South Padre Island is an amazing facility that lets you get up close and personal with the indigenous sea life of the south Texas coast. Here you will learn about seabirds, turtles, fish, and more that make the south Texas coast of the Gulf of Mexico their home. Learn about why sealife is such an important part of Texas history and culture. The most important part of the facility, however, is the dolphin research center. The most advanced of its kind in the united states, the center helps us to understand these incredible sea mammals that are remarkably close to humans in terms of brain function and social development.
One of the most unique attractions in the area, this amusement park goes above and beyond to prove that what goes up must come down. With attractions like the tallest reverse bungee on the world, trampoline zone, a multi-level go-kart track, and a sky swing, you have never had so much fun with your feet off the ground!
Schlitterbahn Beach Waterpark
The awesome waterpark offers all the fun and excitement that you would expect. Thrilling rides, incredible slides, a huge wading pool and a massive wave pool, a fun water play zone for smaller kids, and lots of food and entertainment options. Enjoy the beautiful year round swimming weather of South Padre Island and have a little old-fashioned family fun at one of the largest and longest operating water parks in the country.
Black Dragon Cruise by Osprey Cruises
This one of a kind cruise experience takes you aboard the Black Dragon, a fully accurate Spanish galleon, and allows you to see what life aboard a mighty sailing ship of its type was like when pirates ruled the seas and massive battles above the waves were common. Don’t worry though, in these modern times there is little chance of getting lost due to a wrongly drawn ocean chart or being stranded at the mercy of a failing wind. Below the waterline, the Black Dragon is a fully modern cruising vessel that is equipped with state of the art guidance, propulsion, and safety systems. If recreating the era of Spanish superiority on the high seas isn't your style Osprey also offers several other cruising options for a day of fun on the waves.
Flyboarding is the hottest rage in coastal areas, and now it's located right here on San Padre Island. Fast, Fun, and exhilarating, flyboarding takes water action to a whole new level. Jump, spin, levitate, flip and more with thousands of pounds per square foot of high-pressure water driving you up above the surface. These jet ski powered hoverboards are great fun for the whole family.
Island Adventure Park
There is so much going on at South Padre Island Adventure Park that it's hard to know where to begin, horseback riding, beach parties, bonfires, zip lines, holistic massages, and so much more. This one of a kind amusement and event center should defiantly be at the top of every family's to-do list while on the island. If your family is about to celebrate a special joining of two hearts why not take advantage of the park's beach wedding packages.
ProKite South Padre
ProKite is your chance to sky surf high above the beautiful island of South Padre and see the area in a way like no other. Why wakeboard, why parasail, why flyboard when you can enjoy all of the action of all three at once and more. ProKite is your Kiteboarding lessons center and one-stop support and supply depot for all of your kiteboarding needs. This exciting new way to enjoy water action is one of the most fun and unique attractions on the island.
Museums of Port Isabel
The Museums of Port Isabel oversee the various historic and museum properties in the area, including the Port Isabel Light House. The website provides lots of information about the various facilities and how you can attend them. If you have the time this is definitely an educational and interesting look at the history of the area and shows why South Padre has always been a significant place for every culture that has called Texas home.
South Padre Island Farmer’s Market
This awesome farmer's market has been a staple of the South Padre Island community for years and offers you and your family the chance to experience farm fresh produce, cheeses, eggs, milk, baked goods such as bread and pastries, and more. The market is also a street fair of sorts, offering arts and crafts, exotic and local tasty treats, small-scale vendors, food trucks, and family activities. Stay the whole day and explore everything that makes the SPI Market a cultural treasure for the people of the area.
Any of these great family activities are a wonderful add on to the fun and excitement a fishing charter South Padre Island Texas offers!
