Located close to Isla Secas Archipielago, La Bruja is a pinnacle in the middle of deep and clear waters of the pacific ocean at the Gulf of Chiriqui.
Takes 50min to get there from the dive resort, and the place looks fantastic, just a rock coming out from the ocean.
the first drop we get 25mts deep and the visibility is still good, the sun lights are strong. A mix of rocks and corals provide shelter to all the marine life who looks very healthy and colorful.
in this place, you can see smalls and big fishes.
Sea turtles and white tip sharks are very easy to meet in these waters.

I went scuba diving here on 2/18/2020. Average viz: 81-90ft/25-27m. Water temp: 81-85°F/27-29°C.
Diving La Bruja was a great experience, the ocean was so calm this morning, a nice and fast Dinggui boat drive us to the spot. The top of the pinnacle arises on the surface. we were on the high tide.
From the boat, you can see the school of fishies a few meters of the surface.....scuba gear double-checked and jumped to the amazing underwater world.
it was very exciting, a giant rock like a mountain coming from the bottom and a lot of fishes around. take my attention all the different corals and a big school of Jack Crevalle swimming very close to us.
the vertical wall stop at 20mts there is another rock and the depth continues. we stayed at 20mts diving around the main rock structure...there is full of life. we found a nest with 5 white tip sharks small size
a lot of morays between the rocks, black and yellow puffers, and all the colorful parrotfish.
we spend more than 30 minutes but was like 30 seconds.....the most incredible part was when we were doing the 3minutes safety stop . 6 spotted eagle ray passed under us peaceful
