The Flower Gardens

Aboard the M/V Fling

Picture yourself over 100 miles from land, in the middle of the Gulf of Mexico where all you can see is water. There beneath you lie three of the most beautiful coral reefs in all of the world. You'll potentially see manta rays, whale sharks, coral heads bigger than cars, and hundreds of species of fish and invertebrates!

The Flower Garden Banks National Marine Sanctuary is one of 14 federally designated underwater areas protected by NOAA’s Office of National Marine Sanctuaries, and the only site located in the Gulf of Mexico. Situated between 70 to 115 miles off the coasts of Texas and Louisiana, the Flower Garden Banks sanctuary includes underwater communities that rise from the depths of the Gulf of Mexico atop underwater mountains.

Experience the Flower Garden Banks with Underwater Adventures aboard the M/V Fling live-aboard dive vessel and be prepared to have all of your expectations exceeded. Our two and three day sport trips will provide you with excellent dive opportunities in one of the world’s most pristine coral reefs.
