Expedition Dive The Azores

£2,475.00

DOSSIER: THE ATLANTIC’S GREAT OCEAN HIGHWAY FOR THE WONDERS OF THE SEA…

The farthest-flung outpost of Western Europe comprises nine volcanic fragments peeking out of the North Atlantic. The Azores offer a wealth of wonders: from some of the oldest “New World” cities on the planet, to rich forests and dazzling lakes. For in-the-know travellers, the Azores have long represented a beckoning blip on the radar of possible destinations. Recognition from UNESCO and other organisations has helped that blip to pulse more brightly over the years.

Mission Statement

Divers can expect marine life encounters with some of the largest and spectacular marine animals and cetaceans on Earth at this volcanic, seamount-playground. A mid-length expedition offers beautiful natural hikes to the mountain peak and hot springs alongside incredible wildlife encounters found only in the Northern Hemisphere’s last Atlantic outpost before the Americas.

This remote archipelago simply abounds with adventures; it is, in fact, the Hawaii of the mid-Atlantic. It has world-class whale watching, sailing, diving, hiking and canyoning; excellent surfing and other watersports; rich opportunities for on horseback, on bikes or, for the daredevils, by paraglider. Then there is the landscape itself: a wonderland of seething mud pots, fantastical caverns, and vivid crater lakes that speak of a volcanic origin.

The Azores contain two of Portugal’s 15 Unesco World Heritage sites – the vineyards of Pico and the old town of Angra do Heroismo on Terceira – and three biospheres (Graciosa, Flores and Corvo). The regional government has bolstered this with an award-winning network of natural parks and marine reserves to safeguard the unspoiled environment.
