Banco Chinchorro

  • Kraken Liveaboard
  • Banco Chinchorro is a coral atoll of 43 km long and 28 km wide including few islands:
  • Cayo Centro (in the middle of the atoll), Cayo Norte has 2 lighthouses and Cayo Lobos (the smallest island).
  • Chinchorro has all around few shipwrecks and a prestigious coral reef made from canyons and walls. We count 18 Spanish and English galleons from the XVII to the XIX centuries.
  • The dive sites are located between 5 and 30 meters.
  • Chinchorro is known as a pristine site with a huge diversity of fauna and flora. You can have the chance to see loggerhead, green turtles, nurse shark, reef sharks, eagle rays, dolphins and a big diversity of corals and sponges.

 

Los Picos

Picos del Norte is a series of seamounts 60 miles offshore, north of Cancun. Big pelagic gather here along with giant mantas that use the pinnacles as cleaning stations. Depth of the dive sites: 

  • Granelero: Ship wreck that used to be a towing vessel, is located at 35 meters depth in a sandy area and the deck is at 25 meters.
  • Los Picos: It’s a wall that goes to 60meters and the top of the reef is between 20 and 3o meters.
  • El Chalan 1: It’s with a sandy bottom where you can find a wreck of a barge located between 15 and 30 meters.
  • El Chalan 2: It’s a wreck that used to be a wood fishing boat and it’s still well preserved. It´s located between 12 and 20 meters. It’s a site with moderate to strong current.

 

Alacranes 

  • Kraken Liveaboard
  • Alacranes is a protected area, is the biggest coral reef in the Gulf of Mexico and it’s located at 110 kms from Puerto Progreso. It’s composed of 5 little islands where different species of bird like to nest. We can find 34 types of corals, more than 100 of fishes but also turtles, mollusks, marine mammals. We can also dive on ship wrecks. The whole biodiversity is created by the position of the archipelago and because of the nutriments brought by the currents. The beauty of the place made by the white sandy bottoms, the crystal water and the enormous natural resources, give us the feeling to dive into a pristine unexplored reef.
