About This Diving Experience

Diving at the Azores

The slopes of the Mid-Atlantic Ridge rise up from a depth of more than 3,000 meters. Their emerging peaks break through the surface and form the Azores archipelago. Deep sea currents collide with this huge underwater mountain system which creates an upwelling. The upstreaming water transports food to the ocean surface. Together with the sunlight it forms the base for rich nutrition.

The Azores teem with marine life and the dive locations are among some of the most interesting and diverse in the world. The lava tunnels and slopes serve as habitat for typical reef species such as crustaceans, groupers, conger and moray eels, rays and invertebrates. Each little cave or crack forms a living environment for all sorts of different marine species. Diving into the blue creates opportunities to discover schools of bonito, painted mackerel and barracudas as well as Mobulas and different kind of sharks.

One of the highlights of diving vacation are the dives to the offshore marine needles which reach from the ocean bed to the water surface. Those places which are mostly exposed to the current are home of huge sea dwellers. However, those locations can only be approached when the conditions of current and weather allow.

- Coast diving from land or from the boat
