Hey kids, I’m thinking about heading down to S Padre to dive the Texas Clipper. Anyone have any advice on time of year to go for best viz? Best boats?


Thanks,

Hey there! The Texas Clipper is a blast but conditions can be very iffy. Check out my blog on that dive. I think that American Divers are the only outfit allowed at that site. There are also lots of oil rigs in the area to dive. You’ll have a great time!

Great info on the blog. What was the name of the bar you went to? Did you use Nitrox?

Yep, nitrox but there was an upcharge for that. I remember that there was also a fuel upcharge but I’m not sure if they are still doing that. Can’t remember the bar, there are several along the beach. I think they all had great bloody Mary’s get your veggies! lol

Have fun!
