Description

Description

If you've always wanted to try scuba diving, take the opportunity of doing it in an Atlantic island, under the supervision of top-notch diving instructors!

Start with a briefing to get familiarised with the equipment and safety rules. Then get in the shallow waters of Angra bay and do some simple exercises to practice basic diving techniques with the help of your dedicated instructor.

You'll then be ready to move into deeper waters (4-5 meters) and discover the incredible underwater world in a dive of about 25 minutes. You'll never forget the fantastic weightless sensation of breathing underwater for the first time!

The dive takes place at the "Lidador" shipwreck, a true underwater museum that lays at the bottom of Angra bay, one of divers' favourite spots in the island, which you'll see from up close. You'll of course also have the chance to observe the diverse marine life of the Azores, possibly including stingrays, octopus, fire worms and crabs, besides various coloured reef species.

This is a truly unique experience and you'll not regret choosing Terceira for your first dive, that will surely leave you craving for more!
