After meeting at our dive centre to complete the necessary paperwork and get you kitted up for your dives, we will take a short 10 minute trip in our minivan to Angra bay where we will kit up ready for the dives. If weather permits we will dive on the Lidador shipwreck, part of the Terceiran Underwater archaeological park. Each dive will take about 45 minutes. We will have a surface interval of 30 to 45 minutes during which we will have tea or water and cookies. The whole experience from arriving at our dive center to leaving will take about 4.5 hours. The Azorean waters are filled with life, ranging in size from small to large. From nudibranches, shrimps, morays and all of your colorful reef fish to eagle rays and stingrays that can grow to 2+ meters in wingspan. The underwater topography as well as the beautiful rock formations are a favorite and divers often enjoy around 25 meters visibility. Water temperatures range from 16°C in the wintertime to 24°C during the summer months.
Alex And Phil
Hi, I'm Alexandra. Phil Adams and I are PADI Master Scuba Divers Trainers and have been the owner/managers of Arraia Divers since the end of 2016. Between us we can teach a variety of specialties and courses from discover scuba to divemaster. I look forward to welcoming you to the lovely blue waters of the Azores! We have dived as far west as the Galapagos Islands and as far East as the Maldives and many places in between. Having gone professional in 2012, we then spent 3 years in the UK at Dive In, one of the top UK PADI 5* CDCs, gaining much valuable teaching experience. Phil is a passionate underwater photographer while I prefer videography enjoying observing underwater behaviour patterns.
We use a 9 seater mini-bus to transport divers and their diving equipment to the dive site.
Arraia Reef is located in a bay (Silveria swimming zone) sheltered from the wind and currents by Monte Brasil, the volcano of Angra do Heroismo. This dive site is a mix between a shallow rocky bottom and volcanic rocks. The Lidador shipwreck is a British steamboat that is part of the Archaeological Subaquatic Park of Angra do Heroismo.
最多可供4位年滿10歲的旅人參加。 Guests must have at least a PADI scuba diver qualification (or equivalent). Please advise what certification you hold when making the booking. This activity is not for complete novices.
Please bring a towel and swimwear
Please be at the dive centre by 9.30 on the day of your dives unless advised otherwise. We should emphasise that we cannot promise to visit any particular dive site as access is weather dependent. If it is not possible to dive on the Lidador shipwreck we will most likely dive on Arraia Reef.
