Join us on this most exciting excursion! These trips take place from July to September, and we go to the dive site in semi-rigid boats, so it’s a half-day trip. On this trip, you’ll have the opportunity to see one of the fastest fish in the ocean, the blue shark (Prionace glauca). It’s a once-in-a-lifetime experience, where you have the chance to be in the world of this incredible predator.
This dive is not considered a deep dive. The divers will stay between the surface and 10 metres deep, where the bait box is placed. The boat will be drifting and the divers and snorkellers will be close to the boat. There will be a safety cable tied to the boat in case there is a strong current and for less experienced divers.
If you want to do this dive, we advise you to have several days available, as this activity is only confirmed one or two days in advance, as we are always dependent on the weather conditions and the minimum number of clients required.
Our aim is to promote the safety and sustainability of this activity, so you should follow some rules and a code of conduct when diving with sharks in the Azores:
1.- Checking the validity of your diving certificate, medical examination and number of dives logged.
2 – This activity requires a “check dive” before diving with sharks. This is a normal coastal dive with the aim of checking the diver’s experience and comfort in the water.
