CHIMO

Chimo is a secluded fishing village located in the south of Banderas Bay. Its privileged location close to the edge of the bay, makes this unique dive site a rich environment for tropical fish and large pelagics like manta rays. Getting to see “Las Iglesias”, rock formations that emerge from the bottom of the ocean, like pillars of a cathedral.

LAS CALETAS

Located on the Southern shore of Banderas Bay, this cove is an ideal place for those new to diving to learn the ropes and also offers plenty for experienced divers to explore. You’ll see garden eels, jaw fish, rays, turtles and larger fishes. Do you want to dive in an exclusive spot that is beautiful and rated for both beginner and experienced divers?

El Morro

Is sometimes called the most secluded dive site in Puerto Vallarta, but it is definitely one of the most striking. The pinnacles that are the first sign you’ve reached El Morro are also what make it so unique a site. They rise from the ocean floor and are pockmarked with dozens of tunnels and caves that are teeming with marine life – all of which you can discover on this dive.

A Diversity of Creatures Awaits
Down below El Morro you might see lobsters and turtles, octopuses and seahorses, jacks and yellowtails along with sharks, dolphins and the biggest eels and most awe-inspiring manta rays you’ve ever seen. Then there are the coral and the sponges, which come in every conceivable color and are home to too many varieties of tropical fish to count. It is a spectacle of color!

The Caverns at El Morro
The start of your scuba dive in El Morro involves diving down 90 feet, where you’ll see cave openings in front of you. It’s difficult to see inside, but those daring enough to enter will be rewarded with two things. First, rocky granite walls teeming with invertebrates like sea fans and coral, along with brilliant nudibranchs and scurrying shrimp. Sometimes an octopus will speed by! And second, a brilliant view of the surrounding sea. The darkness of the cave makes the brilliant clarity of the water all the more stunning.

LA CORBETEÑA

With its crystal clear waters and incredible visibility, La Corbeteña is a dive site you don’t want to miss. Northwest of Puerto Vallarta, 36 miles off the shore, you’ll find the rock that marks the spot where caves, arches, and steep walls await those underwater explorers experienced enough to cope with the sometimes challenging currents. Once you’re beneath the waves you’ll enjoy close encounters with huge schools of Jacks, giant rays, reef sharks, sailfish, marlin and whale sharks.

El Sequial

El Sequial, located outside of Banderas Bay, there is a unique submerged table top island that is a haven to a huge variety of marine life. Imagine traversing a giant sunken football field populated by massive sailfish and tuna and then peering over the side of the massive table into dark drop-offs below – a true underwater thrill.
