. Azores Underwater - in Santa Maria - via São Miguel

Departures from June 18 2021 to September 24 2021

There are several different types of dives around the island of Santa Maria. This is directly related to the diverse geologic formations of the Azorean archipelago caves, tunnels and sand bottoms around the coast, in low lying areas close to the coast or in submarine mounts or peaks further from the coast. Noteworthy that the Baixa do Ambrósio there is a yearly concentration of Devil rays unlike any other place in the world. Natural Reserve Formigas and Dollabarat considered by many as the best diving location in Europe, the reserve is located 20 miles northeast off the island of Santa Maria in open sea. A vast number of subaquatic species may be observed here. It should be noted that the highest number of sightings of the pelagic species takes place in this area of the archipelago.
