The wild and rough eroded volcanic structure of Santiagos landscape continues under the surface of the sea. So massive rocks, towers, pinnacles, caves, canyons, arches, steps, sandy grounds and drop offs are forming the submarine landscape of our dive sites. The rocks and walls are covered with a dense vegetation of some stone corals and soft corals, alges and hydrozooa. It is a rich habitat of invertebrates, fishes, crustacea, mussels, snails .............
The sea around the Cape Verde islands is one of the richest waters of the world in fish and marine life. You might discover all the big fishes that are living in the southern Atlantic.
Regularly the diver meets parrotfishes, emperors, trumpetfishes, groopers, angelfishes, butterflyfishes, triggerfishes, langustes, bearcrabs, frogfishes, swarms of surgeonfishes, octopusses, schools of jacks, sardines or makrels ...........
Sometimes you can meet the real big fishes like sandtigers, nursesharks, barracudas, stingrays, mantas, tunas, sailfishes or turtles. Even you see whales, if you are lucky and in the right season. The leeward position of our divesites guarantee calm conditions under water and thus optimal conditions for dive courses (Beginners + Open water divers).
In the close neighborhood of the bay "Punta a tum" and the "Baia Verde" there are 14 interesting divesites to which we drive with the boat within a few minutes. Normally there is no current. Though you have to dive in the swell on the reeftops in shallow dept.
The depts are between 10 - 25 m. The visibility depends on the season and reaches from 10m up to 20 m.
