First the good: very good view of the fireworks being launched from the deck of the Lexington aircraft carrier museum and a nice crew. We are locals, and we are very happy to see the Japonica touring the Corpus Christi bay as we paddle around...More

We went on the 8:15pm Japonica boat cruise. When we purchased our tickets at 1pm, we were told that it was children 11+ only and was BYOB. Cool! Not so much... Upon arrival to the dock, there were at least 6 kids waiting to board...More

We did the 8:15 p.m. cruise on the Japonica out in the bay with wonderful sunset views of the USS Lexington, the LED bridge, and during the day you might even see dolphins! It was a bit choppy for a while, but what else do...More

We scheduled a sunset cruise. Our captain was Pete. We brought our cooler and had a fantastic ride. I made the reservation a few days in advance. The sailing trip was definitely worth it and would do it again!

There are many downsides to this tour. First of all, there are only 2 picnic tables on board to sit for 40+ people. Most must stand for the entire hour. If you stand, you block the Captain's view and he is none too kind when...More
