Come experience the Flower Garden Banks aboard the M/V Fling. A three day trip will provide you with excellent dive opportunities in one of the world's most pristene coral reefs. Can get up to 11 dives.
The reef caps are about 60 feet from the surface on all three banks. That’s the very top, with the banks dropping off well past the reach of recreational divers. The West and East Banks of the Flower Gardens coral banks covered with 21 different species of coral—mostly hard corals, no fans or whips.
Stetson is a clay bank with approximately 40% sponge cover and very few places for the fish to hide! Over 200 species of fish, 250 species of invertebrates and 21 species of coral inhabit the Flower Gardens.
Loggerhead turtles are year-round residents. In late summer around coral spawn time, whale sharks are frequently sighted. Other large pelagics include manta rays, eagle rays, southern and roughtail stingrays, and occasionally spotted dolphins.
