Went for a few days diving and we were well looked after by Devin, Veronica and Lisandra. Angra bay was lovely especially the juvenile eagle rays. All in all, a well run dive centre with a very professional team.

We were three rather rusty inexperienced drivers showing for a dive. We were taken good care of and had a good dive in the bay of Angra, suited for our level of experience.

Devin and Veronica were super nice and told us a lot about the island; where to go, what to do... The dive we did was amazing! Octopus, eagle ray and huge fish swarms, there is nothing to complain about.

Response from Alex-Phil A | Property representative |
We do rent all equipment though our suits are 6-7mm and not 10mm. They are what you will find standard around the Azores. We have neoprene vests as well that many people that get chilled easily like to use.

It is possible to dive then, we dive year round. November is when the waters are starting to cool down and are still quite nice though you may not see the same amount of marine life that we see during the summer.

As long as the weather is permitting, but of course. This being said as it is our 'winter' at that time and the weather is not quite as predictable. Last January we were wearing shorts and had calm seas and blue skies.
