The perfect place for a relaxed dive protected from strong currents and always full of life. Ideal for check dives and to start your scuba diving training.
At the most Southwestern tip of the island there is an amazing dive with bigger chances of seeing a manta ray or other big pelagic fishes due to the strong currents often in this place.
A dive just like its name says! A long vertical wall stands out for his numerous shoals of damsel fish and saddled seabream that keeps along the dive as well as stingrays in the sandy bottom. In the end of the dive there is a small cave disguised by a curtain of blotcheye soldierfish at its entrance.
This dive is located in the Northwest side of the island so it becomes a little more exposed to the waves and is full of life and more pronounced reefs. This is the habitat of many parrotfish, lobsters and even some juvenile dusky groupers. A dynamic dive with a different layout comparing to the dives in the southwest part of the island.
This is not a “typical” dive but a very special place for those who are looking forward to find interesting and camouflaged creatures like sand octopus, frogfishes and even seahorses! At night it becomes even more special being one of the favorite places for night dives.
A wreck dive in Mindelo's bay about 80 meters long is the habitat of an immensity and diversity of marine life, from giant puffer fishes, colourful nudibranch and huge shoals of soldier fish, goatfish and yellow grunt fish. This is an easy dive accessible to all kind of divers since the maximum depth is only 15 meters.
Located in the North side of São Vicente is one of the best dives we can do! A drop-off that starts at 10 meters and extends to 30 meters, with walls, caves and canyons covered with coral that make this place a dynamic and unforgettable dive. Over the drop-off sometimes we see oceanic giant manta rays (Manta birostris).
A very wide cave with sand bottom is the highlight of this dive where you can see stingrays and sometimes sand tiger shark (Carcharias taurus). The cave’s entrance/exit is covered by sun coral and is a beautiful underwater scenario with a strong light contrast and shoals of yellow grunt fish.
The perfect location to see lots of turtles from the surface. This quiet and shallow place allows you to have an amazing snorkeling experience with green sea turtles (Chelonia mydas) in São Vicente.
A small islet about ten minutes by boat from Mindelo Bay provides a great dive full of life. Waves and strong currents are often during the dive which increase the possibility of seeing some great pelagic fish like amberjack, barracuda and even some tuna species.
An incredible dive where a big rock covered by sun-coral is home for some shoals of surgeon fish, soldier fish and yellow grunt. Stingrays and lobsters are also common habitants in this dive spot. The immensity of life will leave you dazzled and unwilling to get out of the water!
Very interesting dive for its great pinnacles at 27 meters covered with yellow sun-coral. The depth increases very quickly in a very short space which gives you a bigger chance to see pelagical fishes and even some species of sharks. The presence of moderate to strong currents is often.
An easy dive where you can find some of the most curious creatures of São Vicente such as sand conger eels, frogfishes and mantis shrimps.
