Diving in Guinea

Explore diving in Guinea

Located on the west coast of Africa, Sao Tome and Principe offer a remote and beautiful diving oasis within a vast span of ocean as they are one of the only areas for diving on the western coast between Cape town in the south and the Cabo Verde Archipelago further north.

The underwater topography of Sao Tome is quite typical of the equatorial Atlantic, a mixture of formations with a volcanic past, including both tropical and sub tropical fauna. There are plenty of beautiful surprises to be found underwater.

The pinnacles are excellent places to see huge barracuda. The two formations poke above the surface, stretching to meet the sun. You can see octopi in the cracks, as well as a variety of eels. Down at the bottom, nurse sharks relax, waiting for night to fall.

When to dive in Guinea

The visibility on the islands is clearest from December to March, and you can expect lovely warm water during this time
