Very organized crew. They took care of changing out tanks and equipment on board ship. Highly recommend you take Bonine for motion sickness starting with a couple days ahead so you can get used to it and not get sleepy. The boat ride out takes about 90 min. Challenging dive. Deep with currents but the wreck is huge and beautiful.... More

To give a fair review I would say that the crew was nice. The enjoyment of my experience was lost when everyone on board became sea sick. This dive is not for beginner divers, it is catered to the advanced diver. There is no hand holding. I would not recommend this company if you need guidance during your dives.

Emailed a few times to try but they are slow to respond. They don't seem like friendly people to work with. Spoke with some guy on the phone and wasn't interested in my business or Having me come dive at their place at some point. Have since been to other way better five spots and don't care to schedule anything... More

Cancelled our dive after we were already in Padre due to "not enough divers". When challenged on this they tried to use weather as an excuse. I have since talked to other divers who have had their dives (especially those on Sunday) cancelled at the last moment.

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

We had a party of six, (including two young children) for a snorkling trip. 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
