About Us

Osprey Cruises professional staff

Osprey Cruises

With a fleet of six pleasure vessels, each offering a different kind of cruise, we’re ready to show you some fun and excitement

Since 1976, we’ve been offering visitors to the Texas Gulf Coast a comprehensive range of water-based activities and attractions that provide the absolute best cruises. Whether it be deep sea or bay fishing, dolphin watches or pirate ship cruises, we promise your family will leave with a smile!

We also operate gift shops at both Pier 19 on South Padre and Pirate’s Landing in Port Isabel. You’ll find some very interesting and unusual jewelry and pirate-themed merchandise, as well as a selection of specialty apparel, souvenirs, and other gifts.


Custom charters

We will customize each private charter to meet your particular requirements. We also offer cruise combos, different experiences on different boats. Example: a morning fishing trip aboard the Bay King and an afternoon pirate adventure/sight-seeing cruise on the Black Dragon.


Group charters

All our themed cruises are available for group charters. Inquire about our package trips that include meals at local restaurants. For our group customers, we have arranged special discounts at some of the best beach-front hotels/motels. That’s part of our service.

Black Dragon Pirate Ship

A total experience

Book a private charter with us for your special occasion, whether it’s a seafaring birthday with fireworks aboard our Black Dragon Pirate ship, a romantic evening spent with dolphins, an unforgettable sea-going wedding, or an educational trip for your school or youth group. If it has to do with boats and water, we can help!


We’re here to serve you
