The M/V Fling is owned and operated by Captain Ken Bush and Sharon Cain.  Our collective experience with the Fling in the Flower Garden Banks National Marien Sanctuary goes back to the days before the Sanctuary was born.  We operate from Freeport, Texas, offering 2 day or 3 day charters to the Flower Gardens during the summer dive season.

We wholesale our charters to dive shops. Check out our calendar for trip dates and store info - then give your favorite dive shop a call to book your trip to the Flower Gardens.

Fling Charters, INC reserves the right to refuse service to any one at any time.

Fling Charters, INC reserves the right to cancel any Fling Charters, INC charter due to inadequate sign up which makes the trip economically unfeasible to operate . In this case a full refund will be issued to the client.
