Cape Verde: Scuba Diving

An Archipelago of 10 Volcanic Islands

Cape Verde Scuba Diving

Scuba Diving is a brilliant way to spend any holiday in the sun, and Cape Verde offers a multitude of unique areas to Scuba Dive, available in a range of levels to ensure that every holidaymaker can enjoy. Because the islands are mid-Atlantic, the waters are clear, the fish plentiful, and the water warm. You can see volcanic rocks, caves, and wrecks as well as the marine life. There are diving schools in Sal, Boavista and Sao Vicente. Many of the dive schools expect payment in cash, and there is a possibility to pay for diving in advance through a tour operator's package. Divers can see a good range of fish, including tropical species such as parrot fish and angelfish, groupers, barracudas, moray eels and, with luck, manta rays, sharks (including the nurse, tiger and lemon) and marine turtles. Five species of turtles visit the islands on their way across the Atlantic. Nesting takes place throughout the year, but in particular from May to October. All in all, Scuba Diving in Cape Verde is one for the whole family and promises an unforgettable experience.J
