Gulf of Mexico
Diving South Padre Island
Scuba diving requires you to complete a certification course to be able to dive with us. Please check our training section for information on becoming dive certified.
American Diving has been introducing divers of all skill levels to the Gulf of Mexico waters off the coast of South Padre Island for over 35 years. Our dive boat, the Diver 1, has been specially outfitted for diving in the Gulf of Mexico. To go diving with us, ALL divers must be scuba Certified by an accredited training agency. Advanced level training and capabilities are recommended. Diving in the Gulf of Mexico presents unique challenges for divers. Changing currents, sea conditions and visibility are all things out of our control.
