Azul Profundo information
Enjoyable four-hour, four-beach snorkeling boat trips for M$180 per person, at 10am daily. En route you should see turtles and, with luck, dolphins and even (from December to April) whales. The company can pick up and drop off at its office and internet cafe in Zipolite. Amiable guide Chepe speaks English and German, and sportfishing and diving are also on offer.
The sportfishing is for marlin, swordfish, tuna or dorado (dolphinfish): start at 6am and try the local method of trawling with handlines for tuna or dorado . A boat for three people, with two lines, costs M$350 per hour (minimum two hours). One-/two-tank dives cost M$750/1000 including a dive guide. The drops and canyons out from Puerto Ángel are thick with fish life and there’s an 1870 shipwreck.
