Black Dragon Cruises

Port Isabel, Texas

You don’t have to walk the plank, but you can hunt for treasure aboard The Black Dragon, an authentic reproduction of a 17th-century Spanish galleon. Below the waterline, the boat is a modern seaworthy vessel, but up on deck the experience is a trip back in time—complete with cannons, pirate stories, water pistol battles, sword fighting, and music led by a cast of pirates.

The view: Scan the gold horizon for dolphins.

When to go: Year-round

Rates: $43 (adults), $28 (kids 3–12); 956/943-6283 or
