1 Tank Scuba Diving (departs from Nuevo Vallarta)
Puerto Vallarta is one of Mexico’s top scuba diving destinations, offering a wide diversity of locations and conditions, from easy-to-get-to sites close to the mainland to more adventurous locations farther offshore.
Los Arcos is a protected national marine park famous for small, granite islands that protrude from the sea and which are visible from downtown Puerto Vallarta. Underwater you will find caves, deep tunnels, arches and a stunning reef that is home to lobster, octopus, moray eels, turtles, and many species of tropical fish.
Originally made famous by Jacques Cousteau in the 1970’s, the Marietas Islands Marine Reserve has now become one of the most popular areas in Western Mexico for scuba diving. Part of an underwater mountain range that peaks above the ocean’s surface, the Marietas Islands mark the entrance to Banderas Bay from the Pacific.
Las Caletas is an exclusive tropical beach hideaway, where underwater coves and a nearby natural reef are home to a diverse array of marine life including colorful tropical fish, turtles, manta rays and great visibility. Good drop-offs, nice shallows, fine beaches, all in one place.
