Here are some details you should know about us and the diving:
A medical statement which proofs your fitness for diving is mandatory! (until 40 years it’s valid for two years, from 40 years onwards, it’s valid for one year!). There is a lot of big fish in the waters surrounding the Azores, but there is no big-fish-guarantee!
What we can see is enormous. What we see – like everywhere – belongs to a bit of luck. Preparing the boat and diving from the boat requires a bit of physical fitness and organisation. Sometimes we have to hurry because of pelagic animals and to avoid accidents, we generally dress up the bcd in the water – It’s not a big thing to learn and there are fun ways to do it! But even so, nobody is forced to this „procedure“.
The biggest chances to see spectacular things are when we head to the offshore dive sites. Because of the location in the middle of the Atlantic Ocean, you should prepare yourself against seasickness. 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.
Minimum requirements/experience: OWD or equivalent, 25 dives (with less experience, only with previous agreement!)
Recommended requirements/experience: AOWD or equivalent, 50 dives
Generally we only take divers with previous notification. Hereby, we can guarantee an individual service and regular trips to more challenging dive sites.
