About this trip

This is our most popular tour of the Flower Garden Banks National Marine Sanctuary.

We depart Freeport in the evening and motor out to the West Bank where you'll wake up at 7AM and dive at 8AM (and again at 11AM). The West Bank is famous for sighting manta rays, so don't forget to LOOK UP while you're on your dive, as divers sometimes miss seeing mantas passing above them!

After lunch you'll dive on an oil platform. Be prepared to be impressed. Divers often go on this dive with modest expectations, but the deep-water oil platforms change a lot of minds! And many divers tell us the rig dive is the best we offer!

Next you'll spend the evening at the East Bank where you'll make one more dive before dark and a night dive. The East Bank usually has turtles that hang out with divers and aren't shy about getting their photo taken.

Overnight we motor to Stetson Bank where you'll have two more dives before heading back to port for a Sunday evening arrival around 5-6PM.

The Fling has been carrying divers to discover the wonders of the Flower Garden Banks in the Gulf of Mexico for more than 30 years. We offer overnight excursions with great food, cozy accommodations, and commitment to safety. The coral reefs in the Gulf of Mexico are the best kept secret in scuba diving. Located far from shore and urban development, the reefs are some of the healthiest anywhere in the world! Come dive in warm, deep-blue water, right off the Texas coast. It's a life-list experience and you won't want to miss out on it.
