Scuba diving information in Terceira Island, Archipelago of the Azores, Portugal

Terceira island offers to the lovers of the maritime activities the possibility to find spectacular and infinite volcanical depths, constituted by torrent draining with some cavities, partially covered by big blocks. However, as it happens in Graciosa, the conditions to plunge are not the most adequated due to the distance from the nearest hyperbaric camera, about 1 hour waiting and 1 hour to get there, and due to the non existence of a transport camera. But this island also offers, in some plunge spots, the opportunity to find sand glades, vertical walls, small caves, very inclined plans or negative ones with cavities. On the water, fulled with fauna, we can find chips, black groupers, frogs, crayfish and big tunny.
