Diving in Chile

Chile is home to some of South America’s most pristine environments. Remote Easter Island, also known as Rapa Nui, famous for its mysterious moai statues, is also a Chilean territory. Chile’s climate and topography are varied and extreme. Travelers go from the world’s driest desert, the Atacama Desert, to the Valdivian rain forest, to the coldest reaches of Patagonia and everything in between.

The long, narrow South American country of Chile shares more than 6,000 kilometers of its shoreline with the Pacific Ocean. To Chile’s east, the Andes Mountains stretch the entire length of the country. Chile offers nature lovers unique experiences above and below the water with its Pacific Islands, famous Patagonia, and access to Antarctica. There are many breathtaking dive sites in Chile. Adventurous divers will find endless opportunities to dive Chile’s Pacific shoreline, and freshwater high-altitude diving is available all along the Andes Mountains. Chile is a pristine environment with many undiscovered sites. Although the water is cold, wearing a dry suit will allow you to explore the fantastic sights Chile diving has to offer.
