Peña Blanca (White Sorrow):

Pena Blance Manzanillo Dive Site

Pena Blanca is a huge rock island in the open ocean offshore from Playa del Oro beach by the Manzanillo airport. It is an advanced dive with depths that can approach 150 meters (450 feet). Because it is in the open ocean visibility is usually very good. Currents can run from light to heavy depending on the sea swell and wind. The bottoms slopes gradually, but the depth goes on to infinity. Typical dive depths range from 45-100 feet (15-33 meters). This type of structure is the type that will attract pelagic fish. It is an area where sharks are sometimes seen and is visited by whales and giant pacific mantas during the winter. Not only is this rock "white" it smells, quite literally, from the bird droppings. The deeper dives make it worth remembering as you observe black coral, volcanic fissures and coral-encrusted boulders. Due to the distance of this dive site, there is an extra fuel charge.
