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 35 metres (125 ft) from the cliffs of La Quebrada into the sea below. The depth of water in the "Gulch" can vary from 6 to 16 feet depending on the waves, with an average depth of 12 feet. Timing is crucial for the divers. 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 and 1970s when the USA High Diving Team competed with the La Quebrada Cliff Divers annually during the Acapulco Christmas Festival. The 2002 Guinness Book of World Records lists this as "the highest regularly performed headfirst dives" in the world. Champion Cliff Diver 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. One of the more famous Cliff Divers was Raoul Garcia. Shortly after he arrived in Los Angeles, Teddy Stauffer's immigration status was challenged and he crossed into México with the understanding that he could then reenter the States legally. When he could not, he moved south to Acapulco, where a few Hollywood stars vacationed. There he managed El Mirador Hotel (at La Quebrada) and turned the boys who were diving from the cliffs there into stars. He was a notorious womanizer. He was married several times to Hollywood starlets, and had been romantically linked to many of Hollywood's biggest stars. ABC Wide World of Sports popularized La Quebrada during the 1970s as one of the early extreme sports. Professional high divers worldwide regard La Quebrada as one of their favorites. The Cliff Divers show as seen from the El Mirador Hotel is a popular cruise destination.
