Unique diving experience at El Sequial
Incredible drop-offs on each side of the table-top make for a unique diving experience and due to it's location outside of the Bay visibility is often much better at El Sequial than at other dive sites closer to Vallarta. The name Sequial means a "dry area" indicating that it is one of the few shallow areas close to the Corbeteña island. Depths in this part of the bay go as far down as 1.5 miles and so it is an area popularly frequented by large marine life such as Tuna, Sailfish and sometimes Shark.
