"Sea Cruise" is a song written and sung by Huey "Piano" Smith and His Clowns in 1959 but it was not released by the record company. Ace Records. They erased Smith's vocal track from "Sea Cruise", the now-classic single Smith had composed, arranged and performed, and replaced it with a vocal track by singer Frankie Ford, using Smith's original backing track. It sold over one million copies, gaining gold disc status.

Later, the original recording was included on the 1971 compilation Huey "Piano" Smith's Rock & Roll Revival.

This song is considered a rock 'n' roll classic and has more then 30 covers.
