This is considered the top overall diving destination in Puerto Vallarta. The islands offer coral reefs, underwater caves, humpback whales, dolphins, and giant manta rays up to 25 feet across, as well as hordes of tropical fish.  If you only dive one site this trip, consider this one strongly.  The visibility is better than the sites closer to shore, but it is also the furthest dive site in Banderas Bay, at 21 miles from shore, so it's a good distance in the boat.
