Barracuda under rigPicture yourself over 100 miles from land, in the middle of the Gulf of Mexico.  Here, in the midst of the unpredictable Gulf, lie three of the most beautiful and wild places in all the world:  The Flower Garden Banks.  The sanctuary actually protects three separate areas: East Flower Garden Bank, West Flower Garden Bank, and Stetson Bank. The reef caps at East and West Flower Garden Banks are about 13 miles apart, while Stetson Bank lies about 30 miles to the northwest of West Flower Garden Bank. Manta rays, whale sharks, coral heads bigger than cars, hundreds of species of fish and invertebrates… This place teems with life!

The Flower Garden Banks were discovered by snapper and grouper fishermen in the late 1800’s. They named the banks after the brightly colored sponges, plants, and other marine life they could see on the colorful reefs below their boats.

Today the Flower Garden Banks is on most serious divers bucket list!  Join OTA Diving on one of our group trips and experience the amazing Flower Garden Banks!
