Snorkeling and Scuba Diving at Palancar Gardens

This dive consists of beautiful coral garden with chutes leading off into the deep. The normal path usually goes no deeper than 70 feet, though it is possible to drop further off the wall. Major features include an arch at 70 feet, large brain coral at approximately 55 feet, and channels running throughout the reef structure. Due to the low current, this is a good spot to relax, photograph, and learn navigation. Turtles and Nurse sharks have been spotted on the reef, along with large groupers, French, Gray, and Queen Angelfish. This site is easily accessed by boat with a short drop to a sandy patch around 20 feet.
