Where we run.

Port Aransas Jetties

Diving in the jetties offers a chance to dive without needing to drive very far to get it. It is a favorite dive spot for local divers.

Texas Clipper

A great boat and wreck dive, she is sunk 17 miles off the coast of South Padre. The Clipper is almost like an underwater museum that it is impossible to appreciate in just one dive.

Lake Travis

In 1980, Bob and Richard Barstow founded Windy Point Park, which is a part of Lake Travis, west of Austin. Divers will find boat wrecks and metal sculptures of a diver, turtle, shark and other objects. For the deep divers, it is easy to explore below 100 ft around underwater trees.

Reveille Peak Ranch

​Decades ago graphite was mined here and the resulting quarry lake is approximately half a mile long in a quite secluded spot on the ranch. This lake is one of the clearest in Texas and the water sometimes "sparkles" when illuminated with dive lights due to the residual graphite.
