Diving sites and scuba centers in Brazil
Overshadowed by the glamour of Búzios and the fame of Arraial do Cabo as a diving destination, Cabo Frio has gone almost unnoticed by Brazilian divers. But one just need to peruse a nautical chart to see that the place is promising. A wonderful archipelago made up of six islands extends off coast, providing more than 30 diving sites. Sea condition varies, as they do along the entire southeastern coast
Visibility can exceed 30 meters and 25 degrees centigrade and, the very next day, drop to 10 meters and 12 degrees centigrade. All of this because of the famous upswelling – a cold current responsible for the name of the Cape. One of Cabo Frio’s biggest advantages is its proximity to diving sites.
