Summer’s Here

With the sun out and temperatures starting to rise both on land and sea, and with the influx of tourists to the island, summer must be upon us. 

Another busy weekend just gone with a lot of divers and snorkelers from a host of nations enjoying Terceira and Arraia Divers.

It all started with our intern, Andre, taking 2 guests from the Netherlands, out for a guided snorkelling tour of Arraia reef, where during the 2 hour excursion, lots of reef fish were spotted. We hope you enjoyed your experience and look forward to seeing you back later in the year.

Our portuguese DM, Lisandra, took one of our local US divers, Jeremy and a guest from the Netherlands, Ad, out on Arraia Reef, to enjoy the abundant and varied fish life. As both were photographers, lots of very good shots were taken, especially of Nudibranch, which seem to be on most of the rocks. Some of these shots are shown below, courtesy of Jeremy Horst

Later that morning, Phil, took a German guest, Malte, on the same reef, where we spotted a ray and a family of Grey triggerfish.

In the afternoon, Phil took guests from Spain, Maria & Jordi (also a photographer) around Arraia reef, where some more nudibranch, a forkbeard were spotted and photographed.

Throughout the day, Alex ran an Open water course (confined water sessions in the Hotel Do Caracol pool) for a US guest, Carrie, and was assisted by our Belgian DM, Geo. Congratulation Carrie for completing these sessions, looking forward to seeing in the Open water next weekend.

 The following day under clear blue skies and sun, Geo took Maria and Jordi, to Cinco Ribeiras for an exploration of the wall and reef system whilst Phil took another guest from the Netherlands, Jan-Erik on a guided dive on Arraia Reef, where we spotted a thornback ray and a giant crab hiding underneath the rocks.

Later, Geo and Phil took a refresher course for Alehandro and Veronica, guests from Spain.

It still continues today with guests from Spain (Eva & Christiana snorkelling with Andre at Arraia reef),
