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.

Expedition Highlights:

  • Nutrient-rich water welling up from the deep – or rather the life it supports – is what attracts the whales; this is also what makes the Azores one of, if not the, best diving locations in the Atlantic.
  • The kaleidoscope of species – from Yellowmouth Barracuda to devil rays, loggerhead turtles to slipper lobsters – arises from the extraordinary range of habitats.
  • A myriad of fish dwell in the coast’s jade-green bays; Marlin, tuna and shark swirl around the peaks of barely submerged volcanoes.
  • Jacks, bonitos and grouper patrol the walls of underwater cliffs; more delicate life forms shelter in caves formed from lava tubes; and countless other species take up residence in the shipwrecks cluttering the sea floor.
