Fling Charters offers 2 - day and 3 - day charters to the Flower Garden Banks National Marine Sanctuary during the summer dive season from Freeport, Texas. The M/V Fling, a fully-equipped 100' dive boat crewed by thoroughly trained captains and divemasters, can accommodate 22-28 divers and offer buffet-style meals and passenger bunks in cabins of 4 or 6. Picture yourself over 100 miles from land, in the middle of the Gulf of Mexico. Here lie three of the most beautiful and wild places in all the world. The sanctuary actually protects three separate areas: East Flower Garden Bank, West Flower Garden Bank, and Stetson Bank. Manta rays, whale sharks, coral heads bigger than cars, hundreds of species of fish and invertebrates... This place teems with life! Check out or Calendar Page for schedules and prices.

To book your trip on the M/V Fling just call the Dive Shop at 936-632-3483.
