      Ixtapa Reefs Two-Tank Certified Scuba Dive

      Ixtapa, Mexico
      From (USD) $97 Per Person (Minimum 2)
      • Solitary Rock: Discover this popular dive site about one mile off shore, where the water is super-clear and the sea is filled with a diverse variety of marine life that includes turtles, eagle rays, sea horses, octopuses, white-tip sharks, and more.
      • Caleta de Chon: Enjoy this small, horseshoe-shaped cove just outside the Zihuatanejo bay, where morays, turtles, sand sting rays, and a nice assortment of tropical fish mingle with the coral reef at depths of 15 to 40 feet.
      • Equipment included: Don't worry if you didn't bring your gear. Everything you need, such as tanks, regulator, mask, fins, wetsuit, BC, and weights, is included.
      About This Ixtapa Tour

      Mother Nature was especially kind to the waters off Ixtapa-Zihuatanejo; she arranged for two currents to converge here: the Humboldt and the Equatorial Counter Current. As a result, the waters are remarkably rich in marine life and colorful reefs, with visibility extending as far as 100 feet.

      On any given dive you're likely to encounter marine life in a variety of sizes, shapes, and colors. There are whale sharks, white-tip sharks, manta rays, eagle rays, dolphins, turtles, yellowfin tuna, and, if your timing is right, the occasional whale.

      Closer to the reefs you'll find seahorses, moray eels, octopuses, stone fish, nudibranchs, frog fish, angel fish, and many more colorful tropical species.

      Your two-tank dive will start at Solitary Rock, about one mile offshore, where swimming around the rock at an average of 70 feet will expose a fantastic variety of sea life.

      The second dive will take place at Caleta de Chon, a small cove with underwater rock formations and a shallow reef that wraps around the rocky beach. At a depth of between 15 and 40 feet, you'll be rewarded with a beautiful underwater world.

      Two tanks, two sites. It's too good to pass up.

      Royal reef

      There are lovely beaches around this area. One is called Las Gatas (the cats), named after the nurse sharks that used to be found here they appeared to have cat whiskers. The beach has a nice underwater reef popular with snorkelers, but it wasn't always a reef. Legend has it that it was a jetty built by a pre-Columbian Tarascan king so his daughters could have a place to swim safely.
