American Diving

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.

Texas Clipper

The Texas Clipper is a multilevel dive, meaning experienced, open-water certified divers can explore the A deck and the Promenade at 62 to 80 feet.


We train divers in all levels including: SCUBA Diver, Nitrox Diver, Advanced Diver, Rescue Diver, Master Scuba Diver, Divemaster, Instructor Level Training and Technical Diver training – Intro to Tech through Closed Circuit Rebreathers including Technical Wreck Penetration.

American Diving

In 1985, American Diving moved from the commercial diving industry to the sport diving community. Since that time we have been introducing divers of all levels to the beautiful waters of the Gulf of Mexico right off the shore of South Padre Island.

The Original Dolphin Watch

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.

Technical Diving is a discipline that utilizes special techniques, equipment, training and skills to improve underwater performance and safety.

Come join us for the 10th annual SPI Dive week!!! September 8th through the 17th at the Sea Ranch Marina on South Padre Island. All proceeds benefit the combat amputee's. There will be an equipment raffle, and of course lots and lots of great Diving. During Dive Week trips to the Clipper are only $165 for a two-tank trip. Each trip will be followed up with free burgers and beer at the docks.
