Baixa do Ambrosio

An iconic place among divers and snorkelers, the Baixa do Ambrosio dive spot in the Azores has an outstanding reputation as an absolute MUST dive spot!

Located only a couple miles from the coast, the shoals of the Baixa do Ambrosio belong to a marine reserve area, and thanks to the plethora of its diverse fauna, its reputation is well deserved!

Less experienced divers, you will hold onto the anchor cable in order to safely observe manta rays, schools of amberjacks, barracudas, and devil rays. Some divers claim to have counted more than 65 in one dive! Fact or fiction? We’ll let you decide for yourself.

Seasoned and experienced divers, you can go down +50 meters and hang on to a volcanic rock while peacefully observing giant manta rays, and maybe even be lucky enough to see an ocean sunfish or two!
