The Los Anegados rock bank lies halfway between El Morro and the Marietas Islands in a relatively sheltered area of the outer limits of Banderas Bay. The bank begins about 30 ft below the ocean's surface and is full of caves and fascinating rock formations. Los Anegados has frequent nurse sharks sightings.
Explore the Shallows
Los Anegados is popular for experienced scuba divers, some areas are up to 80 ft deep and others are shallows of roughly 30 ft. Due to the shallow depths, it is common that you will see bottom-dwellers such as rays and eels. Pelagics such as Tuna and Jacks are also very common here as well as the famous giant mantas. This popular scuba diving tour gives you the chance to enjoy two dives (one tank each) at Los Anegados in 2 different locations.
Perfect For Open Water Shark Diving
Nurse sharks are generally gentle sharks that swim away when approached by humans. This makes them perfect for open water shark diving. Nurse sharks can often be found on sandy, ocean floors resting during the day or at water depths of less than 60 ft so divers can experience these sharks with an Open Water Certification. Some larger specimens prefer deeper reefs and shelves 100 ft into the ocean, this will require an Advanced Open Water Certification or higher.
This dive can sometimes be demanding for divers due to strong currents, but typically the current is mild. The location of this dive site is outside of the bay, 24 nautical miles. We will get north winds that can make the ocean rough. The journey to the dive site is 1 hour in our fully-equipped dive boat. If the conditions are too difficult at Anegados, we may change the destination to The Marietas Islands or to the Southern part of the bay.
