These tours, offered by Ocean Quest Dive Center, are an example of the types of scuba diving and snorkeling tours available in Puerto Vallarta:

The endangered Blue Footed Boobie birds thrive on these islands, besides here, they are only found in the Sea of Cortez and Galapagos Islands. This is an exciting dive as there are many lava tubes and cave formations to dive thru. Between dives, the divers are able to visit Playa del Amor (Beach of Love) which is only accessible by swimming thru a cave and observe the natural habitat of the Sea Birds. The boat ride to the islands affords us the opportunity to see Dolphins, Giant Manta Rays, and Turtles.
