EL MORRO SCUBA DIVING
This is a more advanced site, and is for the experienced diver. El Morro is 26 miles off of the coast of Puerto Vallarta, it is a premier site for large pelagics like humpback whales, dolphins, sailfish, huge manta rays, and even rare whale sharks! If you are looking for that once in a lifetime encounter - this is it. The most secluded dive site in Puerto Vallarta - and maybe the best, El Morro is known for its series of pinnacles that rise from the floor of the ocean, riddled with dozens of caves and tunnels waiting to be explored in a lush undersea world that teems with life.
