Our dive boats depart from privileged locations due to the proximity (both on the Atlantic and the Caribbean sides) of no less than 30 different dive sites of remarkable variety. All of them in about a 10/15 minute boat ride. With other sites somewhat further, Patagon Dive Center have an active list of over 50 sites.
We encourage our returning customers, year after year, to request dive sites that are still new to them. Please, visit our page Dive Sites for more information
Corals and sponges thrive everywhere and fish and invertebrate populations are abundant and diverse. Encounters with sea creatures of large size are common. But the diversity of our underwater scenery is what best characterizes these submerged parts of the Caribbean. We can observe true coral reefs on flat terrain or on drop off's, rocky conglomerates forming overhangs and deep ledges, groups of gigantic boulders, and also massive granite formations carving canyons and tunnels. Various shipwrecks add to our list of dive sites.
The water temperature could range from 85F in the Summer to 76F in the winter and the average water visibility is 60 feet.
