Snorkeling and Scuba Diving at La Portada

This dive is a difficult one in that there are strong surges and not really a current. They bring a lot of food around and provides divers a unique opportunity to see schools of "Hacha" fish, similar to the juvenile angelfish in the caribean, except these are about 30 cm diameter. The bottom has bizarre monoliths like the Portada itself and one can get easily lost. You enter at about 70 Ft and go towards the Portada. Just be cautious of the currents. Don't take cameras, they will get banged up pretty badly. Common visitors are penguins (local name "boys of the sea"). By boat. You can hire a boat from the Antofagasta market area. The fishermen will be glad to take you.
