Attention Divers! Texas Clipper featured in Scuba Diving Mag

Guess who is featured in Scuba Diving Magazine as one of the 50 Stellar American Dive Sites. It is the USTS Texas Clipper off the coast of South Padre Island. At 473 feet long, this 1997 purpose- sunk wreck is the third largest in the U.S. The massive wreck attracts passing pelagics — everything from whale sharks to sunfish to hammerheads. Currents permitting, this dive is open to those of all experience levels; depths range from 60 to 130 feet. Come see us at the South Padre Island KOA and experience this unique dive.
