Hubs and I had seen the Black Dragon Pirate Ship many times as we passed Pirate’s Landing at Port Isabel, TX (on our way to South Padre Island). We often said we’d like to do the tour “someday”.

Yesterday was a warm and sunny 25°C (77°F) and no wind! We decided to call ahead to check for openings. Fate aligned for us, and we were off on a fun-filled afternoon. One more “Someday” had arrived and whenever that happens, it’s among my favourite things.

The Black Dragon tour is one of many adventures offered by Osprey Cruises out of South Padre Island and Port Isabel. The options are varied and include private charters, deep sea fishing, bay fishing, dinner cruises, eco tours, and dolphin watch tours.

We chose the Black Dragon for both the unique ship and the fun. Seriously, folks – after reading Peter Pan and Wendy, or seeing the Peter Pan movies, who hasn’t dreamed of being at sea on a pirate ship?

The crew did a fabulous job. The kids of all ages on board were well-entertained on the afternoon adventure.

Tomorrow, I’ll feature the Pirates.
