About this trip

Dive the Flower Garden Banks which are located in the middle of the Gulf of Mexico, 100 miles away from land, and rising from the ocean floor are salt domes which house a gorgeous community of pristine coral and other sea life. It is a marine sactuary that was discovered by fishermen in the 1800s.  Due to the amazing color seen from the boats, it became known as the Flower Gardens.  You will see 200+ fish species.  Dive this amazing sanctuary with us on the MV Fling, a 100' liveaboard.  Weather permitting, you may get up to 7 dives in 2 short days.  If you have any questions, please call our shop at 210.718.0868 or email us info@sascubashack.com.
