Our great location inside the special protection area of Ponta de São Lourenço means we can offer both shore and boat dives for all levels of experience.
We normally suggest to start your holiday with a dive in our house reef, just a few steps from our shop, but already inside the protected area. This is an easy and lovely dive, interesting for beginners and experienced divers alike thanks to its volcanic caves and rock formations. Maximum depth is around 18 meters, but what makes this dive spot special is the variety of the bottom (sand, rocks, isolated blocks, caves) and the amazing biodiversity. Encounters with octopuses, barracudas, young groupers, garden eels, trumpet fish, rays, cuttlefish and moray eels are common. In addition, from time to time we have the chance to spot some amazing creatures, such as frogfish, huge round stingrays, seahorses or even the extremely elusive monk seal.
Moreover, we run everyday boat trips to dive in one of the 15 different spots in the Eastern part of the protected area. They are all characterized by an extremely rich biodiversity as well as by the chance of spotting the rare monk seal! If conditions allow it, we can even take you to explore the wreck of the SS Forerunner or the northern side of the Ponta de São Lourenço peninsula.
