About American Diving
We are a world-renowned scuba diving center born from that high-adventure spirit which leads you from the office door to the hot sandy beaches of the Mexican border. You can share this excitement with other divers and snorkelers in the deep blue, unspoiled waters of the “Texas Riviera”, territory of the Spanish Galleons and home to pirates of the Devil’s Elbow. Come see our state-of-the-art training facilities. Dive and snorkel from our USCG documented and inspected vessels.

We took our small granddaughters ages 5-10 for their first visit. When we were trying to help each one get started, the dive master was awesome! He swam with the two oldest girls and gave them some pointers to help build their confidence. I know...More

We so enjoyed our snorkeling trip with American Diving! They were very accommodating when our first tour needed to be cancelled due to weather. The kids had a great time on the boat!

At the beginning it was hard but after getting the floating gear on, once we were in the water and feeding the fish, it was all worth while! I highly recommend it to everyone!

I booked the tickets online, and had an easy time checking in. The staff were absolutely funny and took care of us very well! We got to snorkel with a bunch of fish, collected a lot of seashells, and got to feed the fish, as...More

The crew on the boat damaged my SPG. So overall, I would highly discourage diving with this shop if you are bringing your own scuba gear. If you are renting from them, it would be fine and average service. However, if you are someone that...More

If you are a novice snorkeler or have never done it, it will be fine. We have snorkeled other locations, just not SPI so it was very underwhelming. Staff was friendly, but too small an area to snorkel for how many people were taken and...More

American Diving doesn't run regularly scheduled snorkeling trips until middle of May. You can rent gear from them and go in the bay. Water temps can range from 60 -70 around the time you are looking to come down.
