Scuba Diving around Faial and the Azores

diving in the Azores Diving in the Azores is a wonderful experience.

Here we enjoy a clean ocean with sea temperatures between 17° and 22° C. Generally, there is a very good visibility to a depth of 20/25 m.

Before each dive, the group of divers will be evaluated about experience and expectations to better assure everyone's satisfaction and safety. The Dive Master briefs the group about the chosen dive spot before the trip.

"Princess Alica Bank" is the furthest off shore (45 miles from Faial Island) and supplies a spectacular reef dive in the North Atlantic. Normally you can expect to observe mantas, sting rays, white marlins, wahoos, bonitos and large groups of barracudas. Near the coast, you can encounter parrot fish, mackerel, barracudas, trigger fish, moray eels, octopus, lobster, spiral tube worms, sea urchins, sea spiders, plus much more marine life that you can meet in the Macaronise Islands.

Also, there are fascinating dives organised in vulcanique caves.

Night diving is spectacular and amazingly easy at selected sheltered spots along the coast.
