If you don't care for mass-produced, impersonal sightseeing cruises consider Sunny Ray Cruises. Spend an afternoon or morning with Dan and Marty on the boat they call home, a 42 foot catamaran. Glide nearly soundlessly through the channels around Port Aransas and watch for dolphins...More

We did a sunset cruise in early September. The cruise was perfect, great weather, beatiful scenery. Captain Dan and Marty are friendly, welcoming, and have a great life story about their travels. They provided drinks and snacks, and even took pictures of us!
