Extremely rude when questioned about diving and tank rental. I did not get the main persons name, but I holds does treat everyone like that. I hope the people he had to meet we're important enough to lose out on four families schedule dive trip. Thanks

Top Notch! My first time to dive with this organization. I did the one day two tank, (Nitrox) dive on the Texas Clipper. They were on time on target. They did everything they said they were going to do. I would and will dive with them again in the future. The conduct and the professionalism of the crew was outstanding... More

Definitely a fun activity. You only snorkel in a few feet of water so safe for all swimmers and life jackets are available. Super nice staff that were very helpful. If you've snorkeled on a tropical reef this trip is a bit of a let down but still fun. You can feed this fish, pick up hermit crabs, and things... More

The crew was fantastic and made a point to spend time with the children to educate them about sealife and ensur ed everyone knew the basics of how to snorkle. Family had a great time learning how to snorkle and enjoyed the trip. Will definitely be... More

Diving was great. Took boy scouts down for a week. Lonnie and crew was very patient and took care of us all. Gotta get back for the clipper and a whale shark .

American Diving is a top notch dive operation. The boat is very nice and clean. A/C cabin, onboard restroom, plenty of soft drinks and water, and breakfast tacos and a good lunch too. All of the crew are very helpful and attentive. They pretty much do everything for you. We had great conditions with very little current and relatively calm... More

We work with youth groups in the area and American Diving has been training and certifying our kids for over five years. Their professionalism and seriousness makes the parents comfortable. Their equipment is professional grade and well serviced and taken care of.

We dove with American Divers this summer and were pleasantly surprised at the quality of the dive. The visibility was shockingly good (80-90), and there were tons of fish. We even saw a large sting ray and a cool tube worm (you have to ask the crew where this is at as it’s tucked away in inside the ship but... More
