    Hello Aldo

    To dive in the Azores with CCR is not easy, but if you plan everything with time maybe is possible, right now one of the best islands to see Sharks mantas and wales is the Small island of Santa Maria, try to talk with Paulo Reis from this company http://www.paralelo37.pt/

    Wrecks, there are a few, the most visit is the wreck Dory in S. Miguel Island....20 mt SW...

    Then you have all the Islands and all have dive centres, and all have great spot´s to dive, but no ccr friendly...

    To see wrecks and deep reef you also can try the Portuguese mainland, where I work we are Rebreather friendly and have some nice wrecks 50 mt SW and 66 mt SW and really nice deep reef:




    If you need more help to the Azores our the mainland expedition, pm me.

    Regard´s

    The best place is probably Santa Maria, but i am not sure if they are rebeather friendly. You can always ship your gear from the continent.
    About wrecks i haven't heard about deep wrecks in Azores.

    Re: Informations dive in Azores?

    Hi Aldo;

    Best destination for your porpose is FAIAL island. Although CCR diving is unknown over there (no O2 fillings or He) it´s possible to organize an expedition. Some of world top dive sites as this film shows are in reach by boat from FAIAL. If you´re intressted we can organize toghether all logistics cause is also of my intrest to have more CCR divers to come there.

    So far i´m trying alone to put up an expedition (to go alone) dive these off shore places but as the only CCR diver it´s quite dificult and expensive (no share cost in gases). Gases must be ordered well in advanced and shiped overseas also with the heavy dive gear (bail-outs etc) due to weight restrictions in flights. Although SATA (Azorean Airlines) offer´s a diver´s weight package alowing some extra kilos it´s not enough for such an expedition.

    Best local organization can go trough NORBERTO DIVER in Faial ( ) - (Norberto Diver | Só mais um site WordPress)
    whom can grant dives with sharks and other pelagic creatures including mantas.

    Whale diving is not allowed but if you´re underwater and these creatures apear then it´s OK.

    I´ve just returned from FAIAL and had a meeting with NORBERTO (we flew togehter also to Lisbon). Actualy i was proposing exacly this type of activity. CCR diving in FAIAL. He´s out now in Morroco for holydays but will be in PLONGEE (dive exibition) and after in the german dive exibition i tink in Franfurt (BOOT ??).

    Anyway, i can also talk to Jose and Armando (Andreia Doria 50 year expeditiondiver´s) and we all could arranje an outstanding expedition for this summer. I intend to go there anyway even if alone and so i´m waiting information requested about renting prices for 50 L tanks with O2 and He from some companies in mainland.

    Hello Aldo,
    A couple years ago I traveled to 3 islands for diving. I went with a trip planned by Azores.com to S. Miguel and Santa Maria islands, which are in the Eastern group, and then Faial in the central group. In Faial I dove with Norberto mentioned here. I can't remember the name of the lady at Azores.com but she did a great job putting it all together. Great time. Good luck and have fun --- Johnny
