Pico Sport 2021 – the ProNature fleet
Pico Sport offers exclusive diving cruises in the Azores on 4 small luxury yachts. Since the season in the Azores is only 4 months long, it is not worth using a large diving cruise ship in this area as is known from Egypt or the Maldives. We rely on small yachts with microgroups of divers on board, which we take to the very best places in the archipelago. We dive at anchor or as a drift dive in deep blue. Therefore, this cruise is not intended for beginners, but divers who have the experience to deal with currents, depths and large marine animals.
Weekly programs are available from Pico / Faial as well as the new program around the island of Santa Maria. We are on our way to see the big animals of the Atlantic and the crew is constantly trying to head for the best possible areas with a look at the weather map.
For all boats, we usually spend the night in ports. Exceptions are the overnight stays outside on the Princess Alice Bank or the night with the Formigas on the Santa Maria tours. The overnight stays there make it possible to dive at these spectacular places at all times of the day, to take advantage of the tide changes and the special morning and evening hours. In Santa Maria in particular we can stay with the whale sharks for hours and drift with the animals in the blue whale. When we spend the nights in the marinas, the guests leave the ship to eat ashore. That is why evening meals are only planned and included for nights at sea.
The boats and cruises are intended for all those who do not want to sit hourly on uncomfortable inflatable boats to reach the top sport and those who want to stay at the top places to dive there at the best times.
