Most of our daily dive trips go around 3 local islands, along the coast and to various other rocky outcroppings which are all within a 10-20 minute boat ride. There are over 20 local dive sites including the most popular ones such as Punta Argentina, Tortuga, Virador and Monkey Head. Fabulous, varied diving in a spectacular surrounding!

The diving conditions are great year-round! With an average visibility of 15 to 75ft/5 to 25m nobody can complain, as the nutrition-rich waters attract all the fabulous and varied marine life, you’ll hardly see anywhere else…

The water temperature has a year-round average of 80 F/ 26 C with peaks as high as 85 F/ 30 C in June to August and as low as 65 F/ 20 C during the months of December through to March. But don’t worry, the cool waters are only found below the thermocline (separation line of cold and warm water, situated between 45ft/15m and 100ft/30m), where you will dip in just occasionally for a nice refreshing sensation! Most of the dives are held just above the thermocline where most fish are hovering to go feed in the cool deepwater swells…
