As the sun sets over South Padre Island, The Southern Wave makes its final voyage of the day, whisking up to 48 passengers across the pristine waters as they clink champagne glasses and toast to the beauty of the open water. As the star of Southern Wave Sailing Charters' fleet, the 48-foot catamaran sailing boat is perfect for a leisurely sail or snorkel trip, an afternoon of dolphin watching, or an evening of sunset gazing during the dinner cruise. Captains also charter boats privately, including the more intimate Southern Comfort boat, which welcomes up to 16 guests. Soft drinks are included with all tours and charter trips, and passengers are free to BYOB. For more independent exploration of the local waterways, customers can rent waverunners, kayaks, paddleboards, and paddleboats.

Edible Arrangements' fresh, artful dipped-fruit boxes combine the aesthetic elements and emotive properties of floral arrangements with the juicy deliciousness and socially acceptable edibility of fruit. Delve into the depths of fruity expression with one of nine chocolate-dipped fruit boxes valued at $25 or less, such as chocolate-dipped apple wedges ($25), or the boxed 15-some of decadent fruit truffles ($25). On a holiday or any day, an Edible Arrangement can turn a frown into an upright grapefruit wedge, a tear into a three-tiered citrus structure, and a friend into still just a friend, but one with a sweet, balanced diet.

SwimSpot brings high fashion poolside by amassing a collection of designer bikini and one-piece swimsuits by brands such as Athena, Guess, and Nautica. Each swimsuit and cover-up incorporates contemporary trends such as asymmetrical cuts or tropical colours to create stylish silhouettes, and a fit-specialist service provides body-shape searches and remote one-on-one discussions with experts to find a flattering suit for any shape. Lauded in the pages of People Style Watch, Lucky, and Seventeen, an online bikini builder enables the beach bound to build their own ensemble by mixing and matching tops and bottoms using a tool that yields more than 1,000 possible combinations. In addition to providing detailed descriptions and material breakdowns, each swimsuit offered in the online store is modeled in a video that offers a 360-degree view, allowing customers to get a better idea of what they’ll look like as they run into the surf or slowly back away from a sleeping bear.
