One of the most memorable activities you will take part in while visiting South Padre is a cruise with American Diving. Share the thrill of meeting bottle-nose and spinner dolphins in the wild and experience the unique bond and kinship they inspire in mankind. They 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. See their state-of-the-art training facilities. Dive and snorkel from USCG documented and inspected vessels.
DIVE The Texas Clipper and The Iron Reefs. Reefed on November 17, 2007, The Texas Clipper is the premier dive site in Texas and American Diving is your Clipper Connection. Enjoy 2 and 3 tank dive trips to the Clipper aboard our 60 ft dive boat the Diver I.

One of the most unique activities on South Padre Island is the dolphin watching tour. South Texas is a year-round home to several large pods of dolphin and The Original Dolphin Watch is your ticket to viewing them in all their natural splendor.
