Dive the Gulf's Secret Coral Reef - The Texas Flower Gardens:

The Flower Garden Banks is one of the United States' most popular dive destinations, voted by the readers of Rodale's Scuba Diving Magazine to have the best visibility, best advanced diving, top five best value, top five best fish life, top five healthiest marine environment, and has been voted among top five best destinations overall of any dive site in North America.

The M/V Spree and M/V Fling offer full-service, live-aboard dive vessels providing year-round service to the Flower Gardens. Both vessels operate out of Freeport, Texas (100 miles south of Houston), and are scheduled to make the six-hour trip to the Flower Gardens from February through November, and also visit Stetson Banka and the Dry Tortugas.

The Spree sports a recent refit with roomier cabins, fewer passengers overall and free Nitrox for those certified EANx. Check out their site for more details!
