Following on from the successful Azores trip we had in 2018, I am organizing another one for Sunday 15th to 22nd September 2019.
The aim of the trip is to dive the beautiful blue Azorean seas, with 50mtr plus visibility. In September the waters should be 23/24 degrees centigrade.
The diving will consist of a mixture of shore diving and boat diving, but don’t worry as the shore diving is not beaches, but walls to step off into deep blue waters below, and the getting out is straight onto the seawalls next to the vehicles. We will do a couple of wreck dives if the weather permits taking the boat out, but the majority of the diving will be scenic, with Groupers up to two meters in size, Rays over two meters in size, Eels in abundance and so much much more.
I consider my self to be a wreck diver, however having been to the Azores I can honestly say its one of the best dive locations I have ever been to. Lots of arches, swim through’s, and so much more. Whatever depth you are looking for, Pico caters for it all. From the shore, divers can go from 5mtr to 100mtr safely, following walls and slopes which is safe for newbie divers and offers challenges for more experienced divers.
Based on our 2018 trip, you will not be disappointed. A video is below to give you a taster of our diving which was all from the shore (created by Dr Sam Clarke who came with me in 2018).
The trip is 7 days B&B in shared twin rooms. The diving planned is 5 days of diving at 2 dives per day plus a rest day prior to flying, picked up from the accommodation each day and returned to the accommodation each afternoon. Lunches can be bought in local cafes for minimal expense – i.e. a meal as seen in the video below is about 5Euros, a beer is about 1Euro and a coffee is about 50Cent.
