Located near Mismaloya in the
Bay of Banderas is Los Arcos, the most popular diving
and snorkeling destination in Puerto Vallarta.
This protected marine park offers several small
islands offering reefs, tunnels, caves, and arches
teeming with marine life. Dive the 800-foot
"Devil's Jaw" underwater cliff and see a wide variety
of sea life, such as spotted Eagle Rays, octopus,
lobster, angelfish, puffer fish, needlefish, clownfish,
Our second dive will be at the protected cove
of Majahuitas, where the Sierra Madre Mountains extend downward
into the sea, creating nice rocky shores that attract marine
life. Majahuitas is a nice shallow dive where spotted
eagle rays and moray eels are common sightings, as well as a
wide variety of tropical fish.
Yes! This tour makes a great shore excursion.

OUR ADVICE: Los Arcos is a good place
to go if you have a snorkeler in your group,
or are short on time. It is the most famous
site in Puerto Vallarta, like Molokini in Maui.
There are tons of fish, but it can get crowded
in high season, and visibility is limited to
around 50 feet. A massive, 800-foot wall
begins at 60-feet, making it a good dive for
advanced divers as well.
