If you already are a certified diver, an unforgettable adventure awaits you in Faial. Seize the opportunity to discover this volcanic island from a breathtaking perspective. With the local guides of Haliotis Faial, you dive into the fascinating underwater world of the Atlantic ocean and come across marine life thriving in this unique landscape beneath the water surface.
Diving around the island of Faial is a real pleasure, thanks to good visibility and a wide variety of marine life. At diving spots like Baixa da Feteira, Entre Montes, Baixa do Mário or Poçinho Arches, volcanic formations and small caves offer the perfect habitat for many animals, including barracudas, conger and moray eels, wrasses and black corals. You may even see a very special fish, which we chose as our mascot: the Blue Shark. We select the best dive site according to the conditions of the sea, as well as your preferences and previous experience.
