Scuba Diving Tour in Rio de Janeiro
SCUBA DIVING TOUR IN RIO Scuba diving became a sport in 1943, when Jacques Costeau and Emile Gagnan invented the aqualung. This portable tank (cilinder) which carries pressured oxigen inside, together with a device called scuba that allowed one to breath underwater, made possible what many people thought it couldn´t be. Nowadays the equipments are much more modern and even first timers can experience this awesome adventure. Be a fish for one day and go scuba diving! Our Scuba Diving Tour in Rio, takes you to the outskirt of Rio city, to a little fishing village called Arraial do Cabo. It is located about 180 km (112 miles) north of Rio. Although it preserves the look of a fishing village, tourism has been increasing lately, due to the excellent conditions for scuba diving. Beautiful rock formations, sunk ships, corals, reefs, turtles and even barracudas can be seen in its clear waters. And that`s what makes this little town one of the best in Brazil to dive at.

We are an adventure tour operator based in Rio de Janeiro, that has been around since 2001, managed by a team of “locals” who know exactly what travelers and outdoor enthusiasts are looking for, when coming to Rio. We are focused in outdoor activities, adventure sports and ecotourism, but we also provide the regular and most common tours, to places such as Sugar Loaf, Corcovado and other tour spots.It is just a matter of choice. You may choose to go up to Sugar Loaf by cable car, no problem in that, we will surely take you up there. But we will be very pleased if you decide to get up there by walking, or even rock climbing. Our philosophy – which really defines us for what we are as a company and who we are as employees – is to offer you a different approach, a particular way to see our city, through our eyes. Once we have accomplished that, we will consider our mission done.
