Next up on the itinerary: identify plant and animal life at South Padre Island Dolphin Research & Sea Life Nature Center, zoom along the surf with a waterskiing or jet-skiing adventure, make a splash at Schlitterbahn Beach Waterpark, and see majestic marine mammals with a dolphin and whale watching tour.
