Welcome to american diving

scuba diving center

Dive South Padre Island

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. Dive and snorkel from our USCG documented and inspected vessels.
