one-hour course allows you to go on one or more of our dives with our
experienced divemasters right beside you.
If you're new to scuba diving, try out Majahuitas or Los Arcos to
get warmed up, then hit the Marietas Islands. If you're an experienced
diver, El Morro and Chimo are great sites.
Nuevo Vallarta Scuba Diving
Q:WHAT IS THE WATER
TEMPERATURE IN NUEVO VALLARTA? A: During the summer months, the water
is bathtub warm, approaching 85°F. During the winter months, it cools
down significantly, and you often find temperatures dipping into the high
60s and low 70s.
Q:WHAT IS THE VISIBILITY
LIKE? A: The best visibility is found during
the summer months, when visibility can reach 100-130 feet. During the
winter months, you'll find it to be about 15-60 feet.
Q:ARE THERE FISH? A: Yes, there are a lot of fish to be
seen. The Marietas Islands are a nationally protected marine preserve
- there is a lot of sea life both above and beneath the surface.
Q:CAN I DIVE FROM
THE BEACH? A: Due to the nice, sandy beaches of Nuevo
Vallarta, you'll have to take a boat to reach any good scuba diving spots.
Q:I'M ONLY DIVING ONE DAY - WHICH SITE
SHOULD I CHOOSE? A: Tough one - depends on your abilities
and timeframe. For the average diver, we recommend the Marietas Islands.
There are dives for all skill levels, and a huge variety of marine life.
If you're short on time, Los Arcos is the closest to shore. If you're
an experienced diver looking for pelagics, we recommend El Morro. For
lunch on a beach and relaxing in the sun, Majahuitas is a good choice.
Q:ANYTHING ELSE I SHOULD KNOW? A: On rare occasions, it may be
necessary for your divemaster to switch dive sites due to issues with
visibility or water conditions. All dive shops in Puerto Vallarta
reserve this right. It is your dive team's first responsibility to
ensure your safety and well being, and they take this responsibility
very seriously. We thank you for your understanding.
