 Additional Information

English (Translate this text in English): Pedras Secas dive site, its name means dry stones in Portuguese. Is an arena like formation, surrounded by small passages and small caverns and cracks in the rocks. The local divemaster will guide you through the best parts of the site and will always call your attention to the wonders that come into sight, deep range from 12 to 20 meters and there is no strong drift, so relax and enjoy the dive. Marine life can be described as unique and plentiful. Colourful fishes habituated with the presence of divers and some are even curious about the divers, getting closer to take a look at "such a strange creature that makes bubbles". There is no need to be lucky to find nurse sharks and green turtles, they are always around. Try sneaking in the small holes and slits in the bottom and you will probably find some lobsters, crabs, shrimps and octopuses ready to show their quick colour changing show. Quite often, eagle rays and reef sharks can be seen. With some luck, you may encounter Manta Rays and Hammerhead Sharks, an unique experience. All this, spiced with a warm water (27oC / 80oF), visibility ranging from 15 metres (50 feet) in the bad days to more than 30 metres as an standard.
