Diving in Brazil

Explore diving in Brazil

From famous wrecks and healthy reefs, the variety and quality of the diving in Brazil is staggering.

Fernando de Noronha Marine Park, a World Heritage Site, is Brazil’s premier diving destination. With 230 species of fish, 15 species of coral and a breeding ground for spinner dolphins, divers always leave Fernando de Noronha Marine Park happy.

Close to Rio de Janeiro, Arraial do Cabo offers dive sites with calm currents and excellent visibility, making this area great for beginners. Wrecks and caves also offer challenges for more advanced divers.

Whether you choose offshore islands or the shores of Rio, you are sure to see some of the most unusual creatures and the best dive sites South America has to offer.
