Next up on the itinerary: look for all kinds of wild species at South Padre Island Birding and Nature Center, see majestic marine mammals with a dolphin and whale watching tour, stop by Seas the Day, and admire nature's wide array of creatures at South Padre Island Dolphin Research & Sea Life Nature Center.
