As the first dive center that was established on Santa Maria, we offer individual diving faraway of mass tourism.
Due to its unique, natural flair and the excitement of diving in the Atlantic Ocean, you can still feel a bit of adventure.
For us diving is passion, and this passion we want to share with our guests.

Steffen owner of Wahoo Diving
When I came to Santa Maria the first time in 2011 and met some of the dive sites, I fell in love with this small piece of earth. The untouched nature and the awesome and diverse dive sites still fascinate me again and again.The potential that these islands in the middle of the Atlantic Ocean offer is unique in Europe.

After one year as a divemaster and more than five years as an instructor for different dive centers in diverse destinations, among these one year as a tour leader for a liveaboard in Thailand, the chance was offered to take over a small, family-run dive center. The concept of Robert, with individual services beyond standard programs will be kept but there will be some innovations as well.
