ALL YEAR ROUND
Puerto Piramides is known by its rich biodiversity, its beautiful landscapes and the wide range of adventure activities it offers, such as scuba diving. The activity can be done year-round thanks to the clarity of the water and the high diversity of fish that inhabits the natural reefs.
Scuba diving is another tourist attraction of great importance to our beautiful coastal village, which is located on the northeast coast of Gulf Nuevo.
There are 5 licensed operators and several underwater sites, which can be enjoyed by beginners and advanced divers.
Scuba Diving Baptisms
Scuba diving baptisms take place close to shore, in shallow sites with depths less than 5 m, such as “Las cuevitas (the little caves)”, “Islote de Pardelas (Pardelas islet)”, “Lengua de Pardelas (tongue of Pardelas)”, and “El Trébol (the clover)”, where you can admire the benthic life and many fish species.
Advanced divers can enjoy “El Alero Chico de Pardelas (little eaves of Pardelas)”, “El Alero Profundo de Pardelas (deep eave of Pardelas)”, “Colombo”, “La Herradura (the horseshoe)”, “El Derby”, “El Alero Misterioso (the mysterious eave)”, “El Saire”, “El Dollar”, “El Barco (the ship)”and “ La Roca (the rock)”.
These spots have a seabed formed by rocky outcrops or restingas, inhabited by algae, sea squirts, anemones, sea urchins, snails, scallops, starfish, nudibranchs, crabs and fish, including groupers, Turks, rockfish, and salmon.
Our waters make one of the best diving sites due to its visibility, along the coasts of Argentina. In addition, you can snorkel with South American sea lions, an unforgettable experience during which you can interact underwater with these curious and playful marine mammals.
