What is this about?
Puerto Vallarta is one of Mexico's top dive destinations, and Eco Explorer offer certified divers the chance to explore some of the most popular dive sites in Banderas Bay and experience some of the most exhilarating scuba diving on the Mexican Pacific. Our "divers only" 46 ft scuba boat, the Scuba Adventure, visits a different dedicated dive site every day, and we can arrange special Scuba Packages so you can enjoy several challenging dives throughout the week for one low price!
Six miles west of Marietas Islands, on the edge of Banderas Bay, lies El Morro, a series of rock pinnacles extending above the surface of the blue waters of the Pacific Ocean. With depths of up to 150 ft, El Morro offers wall diving, caves and a 50 ft tunnel, giving experienced divers the chance to practice more technical diving in a remote location.
El morro is a small rock located north of the bay. Is considered part of the protected area of Islas Marietas. Recommended only for experienced divers, this site might have currents and strong sea conditions, which also make it incredibly rich and diverse. The rock is densely covered by invertebrates such as gorgonians, sea fans, sponges and ascidians. Giant manta encounters are frequent here. The boat ride to this dive site is about 95 minutes.
Home to a great diversity of marine life including lobsters, turtles, octopus, sharks, sea horses, dolphins, jacks, yellowtails, sailfish and the largest moray eels and manta rays you've ever seen, trips to this spectacular dive site are available to small groups of certified divers only. Don't miss the dive of a lifetime - Reserve Now!
