the Scarlet lady

Constructed in the Fall of 2015, the Scarlet Lady™ is one of the newest tour boats in the Coastal Bend area. Just under 50 feet in length the Scarlet Lady™ can hold up to 49 passengers comfortably with plenty of room, a full bar, and shade to ensure satisfaction on all levels.

The Red Dragon

She mounts 10 “cannons,” fired by computer with a full range of visual and audio effects. Due to her galleon hull configuration, Black Dragon is “sea sweet” and rides like a luxury liner, but she is so nimble, she can turn on her own radius.
