Overview

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.

The snorkeling was not great due to the environment. A good intro to snorkeling since the water is shallow, the current is not strong. The crew, the boat ride, the hospitality make it worth it and it was a nice afternoon on the water.

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.
