I was there in August and was very windy. The tide was high (about 3 m) and we couldn't see fishes at all. The guide said August is not a good month to dive there, and I agree.

The best experience in RN. A must do. The staff is nice, always helping. They keep it clean. And the restaurant trust it's clients, and you can trust it too. The only thing I didn't like is the big amount of "Manteiga da terra" that they put on the food.

To get there from Ponta Negra you spend ~1 hour + 30 min on a boat. It is packed with tourists (~40 per boat). Once you get to the reefs you get pbbly 90 min to snorkel. You can contract the diving at will, which is a great experience if this is your first time. Water is clear and shallow... More

Good price, beautiful way about 15 min on a motorboat to the place of diving. Good explanation and equipment, diving about 2 meters, there are fishes, octopus, fishes are fed there so they look like want to meet you, underwater photo service is good option, extremely clean waters.

This is the type of attraction that can be ruined if you go in the wrong time... To have a nice scuba/ snorkeling, take care to go when the tide is really low (0.3 m or less). If it rained the day/night before or the tide is higher than 0.3m - 0.4 m, just forget it, as you won't see... More

This is a very beautiful place and an almost wild beach, with some great reefs at about 30´ shipping from the coast; an excellent spot for both scuba and (just) snorkeling. But something that really disappointed us and probably damaged a bit our experience was the number of tourists and the lack of reasonable services that it should have for... More
