Los Arcos El Morro Chimo Marietas Corbetena
Discover Scuba Open Water Advanced Referral Scuba Diving


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, and more.

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.

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.
