    What to Expect
    With water temperature varying between 16º and 24º C, and with visibilities that can reach 30 meters, each immersion provides you a unique  and unforgettable experience.

    Underwater you will find formations of natural arches, passages, walls and a whole set of reefs formed by lava. You will have the opportunity to visit shipwrecks and also the anchorage of Vila Franca do Campo, where there are several anchors dating back to the 18th century.

    Come and dive to one of the ex-libris of diving in the Azores, the Natural Reserve of the Islet of Vila Franca do Campo! Add to all this, schools of bicuda, rill, lilies, sargos, vejas, the colorful kingfishes, morays and of course the enormous Meros that toast us with your presence!
