The Azores are, without a doubt, one of the best good demonstration speech places for scuba diving in the whole Atlantic. Our diving season goes from April to October.The diving spots are very diverse and can fit all the preferences and levels of experience, since we can offer more than 20 different diving spots around Faial and Pico Islands.

Usually we dive around the marine protected area of “Monte da Guia” where the majority of our spots are located. To get there, we use our zodiacs once it’s only 5 minutes away from our dive center. The temperature of our waters range between 68 to 75 F (20-24ºC) in the summer months, therefora a 5mm or 7mm wetsuit is suitable. 

The coastal marine life in the islands of Faial and Pico is amazing. You will able to see many curious Grey Triggerfish (Balistes carolinensis), big Drusky Groupers (Epinephelus marginatus), Mediterranean Parrotfish (Sparisoma cretense), Octopus and Morays Eels that hide between the rocks as well as several species of small, colourful nudibranchs, among others.

If you don´t have a diving certificate we offer either, snorkelling trips in the diving spots or a scuba diving baptism, a normal dive under the care of our qualified and experienced instructor.
