We really enjoyed our 3 day Flower Garden Banks trip aboard The Fling. It seemed like it took a day for the crew to warm up to our group, but we could tell they were very safety conscious and concerned for our well-being. Captains Bland...More

The crew of the Fling made the experience enjoyable, even as I battled motion sickness for the first day of our trip. The dives were terrific and the dive masters explained them very thoroughly. The food was great, too. I would echo some of the...More

My 2nd trip aboard the Fling was just as excellent as the first. I was with a group of divers doing a Lionfish extraction trip, and I cannot speak highly enough about the professionalism and comfort that I have now come to expect and receive...More

The fling was a very good experience. Sharon and her team are hospitable, caring and provided a wonderful experience for our team of divers. This was our first time with Fling and will definitely return for another dive charter.

I recommend this trip to well seasoned divers. Novices diving conservatively with seasoned divers might still find it too challenging with good reason. Currents can be significant and must always be respected. On one dive, I underestimated the current and had to be plucked from...More
