Mismaloya Divers

At the southern end of Mismaloya Beach, near the rock formations called Los Arcos, lies one of Mexico's underwater national parks. Mismaloya Divers offers reasonable rates for guided tours of the park, for beginners and veterans. Explore shallows teeming with aquatic life, including moray eels, angelfish, puffer fish and even the occasional manta ray. Beyond the shallows lie craggy rock and coral formations, leading to the edge of a continental shelf, which drops away to a depth of 1,800 feet.

Mismaloya Divers is at the Marina on Mismaloya Beach.
