There are a few areas described as good diving in Brazil, Arraial do Cabo is relatively close to Rio and is a popular place to dive. Take this with a grain of salt, especially if you have been diving in tropical areas such as the Great Reef and Hawaii. With regards to the dive centre Fish Mergulho, the service was... More

On a two week business trip (from Canada), this was my first time to Brazil. I chose By Fish Mergulho based on TripAdvisor reviews. I speak only English, but was able to make all arrangements by email (thanks Marcia!). The drive from Rio was a bit of an adventure, taking at least 2.5hrs. It seems that parking might sometimes be... More

The equipment I rented was good, the dive masters were super nice and could speak well in English (I dived with Rudi). Marcia was the one who replied to my emails (and all my questions haha) and she was quick to reply and very professional. Go dive with them if you have the chance! :)
