Shipwreck "MV Dori"

English

With the top of her stern at a depth of only 9 metres, and the bow in the deepest part at 20 metres, the Dori shipwreck is a great place for all types of dive and snorkelling trips.
Considered by many as the best dive site on the island of São Miguel, this wrecked Liberty ship on the sandy seafloor was built during the Second World War in the United States.

It was one of the few ships of this type that took part in Operation Overlord along the coast of Normandy, as well as taking part in a number of other wartime missions, and it eventually sank 800 metres off the coast of Ponta Delgada on 16 January 1964.

Hydrothermal vents

English

The Azores are one of the few places in the world where you can enjoy underwater volcanic activity.

Dive in a very volcanically active area, with forms of volcanism very obvious such as fumaroles.

The release of air bubbles that form as that "curtain" is a unique show that you will not want to miss.

The dive is made in a very easy place and at a shallow depth, making it accessible to everyone.

Formigas & Dollabarat

With only 165 meters long and 11 high, indicated by a small lighthouse, the islets are within 42 nautical miles of Vila Franca do Campo, 33 nautical miles off the southwestern tip of San Miguel.

There are several dive sites around Formigas. The most frequented places are: The Wall and the northern tip of this small islands known as places of passage of large schools of pelagic and a small down to 8 meters depth located about 50 meters South of Formigas known as a place of passage of manta rays.
