Overview

In 1988 inaugurated the first school and diving operator in the city, SAND'MAR NAUTICAL. Pioneer, and believing in the potential of Arraial do Cabo, invested all this time in spreading the region, and the awareness of people about the importance of preserving the sea in Arraial do Cabo, considering it more than a freak of nature a true patrimony of its population, being properly used. Ie, increasingly matures is already an extremely professional and competent structure to serve the diver interested in knowing this diving paradise. With the advent of sound competition, the diver will benefit the most, as able to distinguish and honor schools with serious adventurers who sometimes try to take advantage of a good opportunity. With its own headquarters in R. Pessoa, 21 Lj.02 in Praia Grande. Offering in your store, sale, rental and servicing of domestic and imported diving equipment, nautical and beach fashion, Wi FI for divers who are looking to virtually navigate too, and with its air-conditioned lecture room equipped with 3D Multimedia Projector and whiteboard interactive with capacity for 10 students. With its large investment that is in AR (Bauer Compressor K-14 and P-4 filters with cascades of 4500 PSI cylinders) and Nitrox / TRIMIX being the first school / Operator in the Region to place refill mixes EAN (Enriched Air Nitrox) and TRIMIX.
