around 20 minutes from Vila Franca do Campo and 50 minutes from the marina of Ponta Delgada
The Azores are one of the few places in the world where you can enjoy diving spots with underwater volcanic activity.
This diving spot is located in a seismic zone which is also volcanically very active. Therefore, it is possible to observe fumaroles, a secondary volcanic phenomenon. Also, the release of air bubbles creates a kind of “curtain”, which is an amazing natural spectacle.
This dive takes place in an area considered easy and at shallow depth, which makes it accessible to all divers.
