Scuba Diving in Sintra
Portugal is possibly the most diverse diving destination in Europe. With a long Atlantic coastline, diving takes place at locations around the country including Porto, Aveiro, Peniche, Lisbon, Sines, Sagres, Lagos and Faro. In addition to the mainland, divers flock to the Portuguese islands which include Madeira and the Azores, located on the division between the Eurasian and North American tectonic plates.
Along with the historical encyclopedia of wrecks, many marine reserves and parks provide plentiful habitat for a variety of fish life and corals. Open ocean dives near Madeira and the Azores are sure to entertain pelagic lovers. Interestingly, the Azores is one of the only places in the world to dive over a live volcano.
Diving is such a unique experience to come face to face with a vibrant, and sometimes bizarre, underwater world. As well as a vast array of colourful fish and plants, you'll also see fascinating sea life from octopus, cuttlefish and lobster to star fish and sea horses and with a bit of luck, dolphins, whales, seals or turtles.
While you may not visit Sintra Portugal explicitly for the diving, you won’t be disappointed when you jump in the water and discover the fantastic scenes on the seafloor.
