Diving sites and scuba centers in Brazil
Scuba diving enthusiasts travel the world in search of the perfect dive spots. However, this sport is also popular amongst less frequent divers that find solace in the beauty and silence of the open water within their own home town.
Therefore, this has become an important facet of the tourism industry in Brazil, which offers magnificent scuba diving opportunities. With 5 000 miles, or more than 8 000 kilometres, of open coastline, it is no wonder that Brazil offers such plentiful SCUBA spots.
Scuba diving off the coast of this South American country is particularly rewarding for its biodiversity. This includes the mammals, fish and vegetation (kelp and coral, for example) that live beneath the inviting waters of the Atlantic Ocean. Popular animals that are sighted on scuba dives around Brazil include spinner dolphins, nurse sharks, green sea turtles, and even whales (during the period between July and December). In addition to the natural abundance of the area, there are also a number of shipwrecks, lying in haunting stillness at the bottom of the ocean. Explore their nooks and crannies, accompanied by inquisitive fish and mammals.
