It is true that both Argentina and Chile are not recognised destinations for diving. However, the facts are that there are many interesting dive locations available where you can rub shoulders with marine animals you would not normally see.

Here I propose some examples of diving trips, though others are available.

Easter Island is the peak of an underwater volcano that rises as a mountain 1,700 feet (518 meters) above the oceans surface and 6,500 feet (2,000 meters) below. Due to the lack of plankton, visibility in the surrounding ocean ranges from 120 to 200 feet (40 to 60 meters). The absence of rivers, ports, and dumping of sewage and industrial waste keep the water crystal-clear. The average water temperature is 71E F (22E C). Coastal divers have sampled 144 species of algae and approximately 111 species of tropical and pelagic (open sea) fish. About 20% of both the marine flora and fauna is native to the island. As Rapa Nui has no coral reef, there is extreme coastal erosion. Still, six species of corals do grow in shallow water around the island. There are extensive submarine cliffs with a plethora of caves. Divers are warned to proceed with caution. There are numerous locations around the island for scuba-diving but, despite strong winds and large swells, the southeast coast is a favorite when north winds sweep across the island. Endless lava fields with few coral outcrops stretch along its 13-mile-long coastline. The west coast, home to Hanga Roa, also features some of the islands most striking scuba-diving sites, with immense underwater rock formations covered with coral of all varieties.

Patagonia in all seasons menu. For example, according to the climate, from Bariloche, in Patagonia Argentina, it is possible to go to Puerto Montt, in Chile, crossing successively three lakes by boat, as did the Jesuits and the first German settlers. I offer a tour that leads to the Pacific Ocean. It is quite long, but the beauty of the sites - forests, volcanoes and crystalline lakes - is such that it is worth to be carried. The Argentine side, cross the west arm of Nahuel Huapi and Lake Puerto Alegre and, the chilen side, Lake Todos los Santos. Moving from one lake to another by bus. This tour is feasible in all seasons, but in winter, it takes two days to reach Puerto Montt, stopping for one night at Peulla. We returned to Bariloche by air or by the same way, after a night in Puerto Montt. Borispatagonia is also responsible for visas to go to Chile and to book hotels. In Patagonia, winter and summer are tourist seasons. In summer, besides explore the surrounding, many activities are available: climbing, torrent fishing, sailing, horseback riding, hiking, rides, visits to Aciendas... In winter, the main activity is, of course, skiing, especially in July and August on the side of the Andes, but not only: snowshoe hikes, thematic tours, many walks to admire the beauty of Patagonia Argentina and Chile in this season, due a unique light, the warmth of the people of Patagonia... Just to talk about, I get goose bumps!
