Watch the La Quebrada Cliff Divers


The La Quebrada Cliff Divers are a group of professional high divers, based in Acapulco, Mexico. They perform daily shows for the public, which involve diving 148 ft from the cliffs of La Quebrada into the sea below. During the night, they often hold torches while diving. 

Acapulco cliff diving was regularly featured on weekend sports television programming in the United States during the 1960s to 70′s when film stunt man Ray Austin made the dive. Although cliff diving at La Quebrada had taken place for many years, it was not until 1934 that the La Quebrada Cliff Divers was formed. The World Cliff Diving Championships are also held at La Quebrada. More Info
