Diving in Pucusana
A small fishing village sits right on Pucusana Bay, just 31 miles south of Lima, and offers some of the best diving in Peru. The resident sea lion colony draws most divers here, where you can experience the thrill of playful sea lions buzzing right overhead. Set against the beautiful kelp forest are colorful nudibranchs, sea stars, rays, sea urchins, grouper, blennies, and more. Some of the best dive sites in Pucusana include El Chuncho, Lobos Flats, Baja del Faro, and Playa Chica. Dive depth ranges from 8 to 30 meters, making Pucusana diving great for all diver levels.
