Here are some details you should know about us and the diving

Boat trip

Preparing the boat and diving from the boat require some physical fitness and organisation. We put the BCD on when in the water. Sometimes we have to do this quickly (for example, when in the presence of pelagic animals, or as an occasional safety measure). It is easy to learn how to do it, and we do so in a fun way. However no one is obliged to follow this step.

The biggest chance to see something spectacular is when we head for the offshore dive sites. These sites are out in the open ocean where the waters get choppy. Be aware of this if you are prone to seasickness.

There is a lot of big fish to be encountered in the waters surrounding the Azores. What can be seen leaves us in awe. However, sightings are not guaranteed. What we see goes with a bit of luck.

We only offer two-tank–trips (changes due to weather conditions are possible)

Group sizes are within a maximum of four divers per instructor. Experienced divers, instructors or divemasters can dive with their buddy without guidance of course.

Generally we only take divers who have pre- booked their trip. That way, we can guarantee individual service and regular trips to more challenging dive sites.

Safety first

We require a medical certificate attesting you are fit for diving.

If you don’t have a dive insurance we recommend aqua med or DAN Europe.
