Went here back in December 2012 with family. There's pretty big area for diving, but you do need to be careful with the reef and sealife living there, so you don't get accidentally hurting your feet. It can be a bit crowded, so you'll need a bit of patience to be able to enjoy. I'd say that the initial minutes... More

We just took the tour from the hotel to go snorkelling, and found that there were too many people for a small area, and the fish were few. As we swam away from the loud crowd, we were able to see a little more, but for the 1.5 hour we were there is wasn't a lot of time to explore.... More

Really beautiful place to see fishes and to dive. If possible make the cylinder dive. Worth every penny . Fishes and sea life to see with fishes swimming in front of you. Clear water and beautiful beach. Nice place to make pictures under water with your go pro.

You need to research the tide table before you go there, and be willing to get up earlier. The landscape is really amazing if you go there at the right time, but prepare yourself to swim with a lot of people around you. I don't think so it's worth to do scuba diving because of the price and it is... More

Definitely one of the best tours I have ever done. The natural pools are incredible and I had an amazing experience. All the companies have a pretty similar catamarã so it doesn't really matter which one you have chosen, you will have the best experience. If you are paying it straight to the company (and not through your hotel), make... More

I was really expecting that the Galés were beautiful but not so beautiful! The place is amazing and the sea has unbelievable colors. If you go there, do the scuba dive... Takes more or less 20 minutes and is super b!!

Hard to describe the color of this natural pool! I attached a picture and it says by itself how amazing the experience was. If you go to Maragogi, this place is a must!!!

We got to Maragogi beach and we took a boat to get to Galés. We paid a R$ 65 fee and we thought it was a bit expensive as we were not sure of what we were going to find. However, when we got there we were amazed by this place! As it was winter (July), the water was not... More

Very fun trip, we rented a boat from a local restaurant and did a more private tour. it was definitely worth it. DO NOT go in the monster tour boats with hundreds of people, its the same price as the small private boat. WE paid around 60 per person. The coral is nice, but don't expect Caribbean coral. There were... More
