Chile's underwater life is composed of soft flower coral, plenty of fish, sea stars and sea slugs, crabs and bigger species including seals, sea lions, small sharks, and the occasional dolphins. Diving hotspots include Quintay, Algarrobo, Los Molles, Zapallar, and Punta Choros. Water temperatures typically do not vary significantly throughout the year with an average 11 °C in winter and 14 °C in summer. The popular season among tourists is from September to May, yet if you desire more privacy and less divers around, winter will work better. Generally, the northern coasts are warmer than south.
