Scuba diving in Anegada
This rocky bank lies half way between El Morro and the Marietas Islands in a relatively sheltered area of the outer limits of Banderas Bay. The bank starts at around 9m/30ft below the ocean surface and is full of caves and rock formations. This dive offers an excellent chance to view giant manta rays as well as jacks, nudibranchs and tuna. Eagle rays and nurse sharks are a regular site at this location as well as moray eels, which enjoy the shelter the rocks provide. The dive site is peppered with caves and punctuated by intricate rock formations. Some of its interesting features are labyrinth-like rocks to swim through while watching schools of fish nearby and an archway covered with corals and sea fans housing all kinds of nocturnal species including squirrel fish, soldier fish and octopi. Thorough explorers may find remains of a shipwreck known only to a few. The average visibility varies between 10-30m/32-98ft.
When to go
Diving is possible all year round. The average water temperature ranges between 27-29C/81-85F during the summer and 18-22C/64-71F during the winter.
