Our Cape Verde Diving Holiday on Sal in one week is the perfect opportunity to learn how to dive and explore the colourful underwater world.

We’ve suggested that you spend the week at the wonderful Hotel Morabeza on Sal. The hotel is located just 50 metres from the dive centre where you will go out for the 10 dives we’ve included during your stay. The dive school is PADI accredited, well equipped, and can cater for all diving abilities from beginners to advanced. We also offer various dive courses from a Discover Scuba day to PADI Open Water and Rescue Diver.

During your Cape Verde diving holiday on Sal, you’ll be able to choose from 16 different dive sites including caves, wrecks, rocky platforms and sandy seabeds. The marine life is fantastic: turtles, sharks, pufferfish, trumpet fish, moray eels, and manta rays.

If you are more experienced and are looking for something different then we also offer diving trips from the islands of São Vicente or Santiago. Due to the strong currents, São Vicente and Santiago are for divers who already have plenty of dive time logged in a variety of places and conditions.
