Visit the famous Los Arcos of Puerto Vallarta, the incredible rock formations of Punta de Mismaloya and the beautiful reef at Bajo de Cristo. These 3 sites are perfect for all levels of certification and for divers who prefer shorter travel times to and from the dive sites. The depths range from 7 to 20 meters at sites located near the coastline that are thus protected from strong winds and waves. Although these places are only 35 minutes away, the topography, fauna and flora will surprise you, with stunning wall dives where you can encounter large schools of jacks, to vibrant reefs where turtles and families of eagle rays will pass along the sandy bottom. Amazing rock formations are home to fascinating invertebrates such as octopuses, seahorses and nudibranchs (sea slugs).
LOGISTICS: The boat trip to the most distant reef is 35 minutes. Dives will last from 40 minutes to 1 hour, depending on air consumption. Surface intervals will be approximately 45 minutes.

- It is a requirement to have completed at least one dive in the last twelve months. if you have not, we recommend that you take your refresher course one day before your immersion, for an additional cost of $858 pesos.
- Pregnant women are not allowed to dive for the safety of mother and baby.
