Porto Seguro, Brazil

Porto Seguro, Brazil


Porto Seguro has great water conditions for diving. There are several spots near Recife de Fora, one of the most beautiful spectacles of the marine fauna and flora, including a huge coral area of several species, where many types of fish live, like groupers, pollacs, barracudas, surgeon-fish, etc. The depths vary between 10 and 15 meters.

For the shipwreck lovers, a good choice is the Castor de Andrade, with 70 meters in length at 16 meters depth, where nature turned it into a reef with the most diversified marine species. Eastwards of this is the wreck of a platform (Bate-estaca) at a depth of 23 meters.
