 Additional Information

English (Translate this text in English): El Chuncho is a tiny bay on the island of Pucusana port. Because of its all year calm waters it is used for training by Peruvian dive schools. It’s a great place for people that dive the first time in Peru and want to slowly adjust to the strong wave movements along the Peruvian coast. There is a thick kelp forest in the bay. When diving there one should start diving the kelp forest in the center of the bay and end by diving along the wall. El Chuncho is always good for a surprise. Many times you can find unusual species in this dive spot.
