The dive sites around the island of Santa Maria in the south of the Azores are a well-kept secret. Here the water is much warmer than around Pico, so different species can be observed.
Others like blue and mako sharks are missing.
The Mobula meeting point Ambrosios is legendary.
The nature reserve of the Formigas is located 22nm north from the port.
Small marine parks have emerged around Santa Maria that offer first-class Atlantic diving.
The island is also famous for the frequent occurrence of whale sharks which can be seen here regularly.
We therefore move one of the ships from proWin pronature Fleet to Santa Maria and offer one-week cruises, just like in the central archipelago.
