Highlights of Scuba Diving in Peru

The first thing that you’ll notice about diving in Peru is the chilly waters created by the Humboldt Current and the lower visibility compared to more sheltered dive sites. But don’t let that put you off. Facing onto the Pacific Ocean, Peru is the perfect place to spot sea lions, frogfish, and moray eels, as well as beautiful sea turtles and dainty seahorses. Peru boasts over 1,000 fish species, 1,400 kinds of mollusks, and 300 different types of shellfish!

Off the coast of Peru, explore vast kelp forests with algae up to 10 meters in height along with the numerous species of fish that use these forests as a hideout. La Corona del Diablo and La Roca del Pináculo are two other famous sites for scuba diving in Peru that you’ll definitely want to catch before heading off for your must-take photo at Machu Picchu.
