Dive Area
Snorkeling around the island of Faial is a real pleasure, thanks to good visibility and a wide variety of marine life. At various snorkeling sites, volcanic formations and small caves offer the perfect habitat for many animals, including barracudas, conger and moray eels, sea horses, wrasses and black corals. We select the best spot for your adventure according to the conditions of the sea, as well as your preferences and previous experience.

We meet at our diving centre located in the Faial Resort Hotel in Horta. Here you meet your guides, receive the snorkeling equipment and can use the changing rooms. As soon as everybody is ready, we head to our semi-rigid diving boat "Lioti" in the port of Horta.
- Diving:
At the snorkeling spot, our experienced guides will give you an introduction to the particularities of the underwater world you are about to explore. Thanks to helpful tips and tricks provided by the experts, you will learn how to safely handle the snorkeling equipment in no time.
