They range from the wonderful Faial/Pico channel with the most diverse habitat in the Azores; a 5 nautical mile wide shelf ranging from 45m to 500m in depth. There are also several caves to explore for the more experienced divers including Gruta Profunda with an entrance at 35m and an internal exit to the surface. There is also the opportunity to dive round old volcanic craters and vertical drop offs. Most dives are close to Horta so this makes an ideal base for any diving holiday on Faial.
During your week of diving, you will have 10 standard dives with a professional PADI operator in Horta who we have worked with for many years. Tanks and weights are included and all other equipment can be hired at an additional cost. If you would like some more specialist dives e.g. Princess Alice Bank then we can quote for these too.
Please note : To maximise the safety of visitors on our diving holiday on Faial, our boats do not go out in adverse conditions, so days and times of outings will naturally be dependent on prevailing weather conditions.
