Diving in Chile

Explore diving in Chile

With 4300 km of coastline it's no wonder Chile boasts a hugely diverse range of dive sites. The Humboldt current runs the length of the central and northern coast, and it’s laden with nutrients that support a massive amount of biodiversity. To the south, the frigid waters around Punta Arenas are home to pods of dolphins and whales in a maze of fjords and islands.

This remote Pacific island is the epitome of a ‘deep blue’ feeling with perfect visibility, sheer drop-offs and no other divers in a radius of over 2000 miles. Robinson Crusoe Island also offers Humboldt Current diving in a remote location.

This sprawling, rugged landscapes and the bustling cities, makes scuba diving in Chile a must for any adventure-seeker.
