The water sport options are many as the island offers deep-sea fishing, diving, dolphin watches, and other ecological excursions.

The South Padre Island Birding and Nature Center provides the opportunity to see different species of birds at a closer range as well as a chance to get wildly close to some alligators as well! Don't forget the Laguna Madre Nature Trail with its 1,500-foot boardwalk that crosses four acres of marshland.
