Scuba Diving in Fernando de Noronha

Looking for diving


The dive in Fernando de Noronha is good all year round. However, you should keep in mind some factors that can influence your decision.

Between the rough sea months, mid-December to mid-March, the island sea is in unstable conditions and it is not difficult to see all the dive boats going out to open sea.

At this time, navigation is more complicated because of the rough ocean, and some people can feel seasickness. The quality of the dives is very good, both in visibility and in marine life. The most coveted diving spots on the island are right on the open sea. (Pedras Secas, Caieiras, Iuias, Cabeço Submarino among others).

Between April and end of June is the rainy season on the island. As we are in the middle of the Atlantic Ocean, it is not common to see long rains that last days and days. The most common are rainfalls at the beginning of the day and late afternoon. Therefore, the dives at this time are equally good, sometimes they lose luminosity but not visibility.

The sea from the outside begins to receive stronger winds and is very agitated, and to be able to dive there, depends on some factors. In addition to the sea conditions, the group of divers should be aware that will navigate in a heavier sea, sometimes with stronger currents and for this reason, it´s required more experient divers.

The most common is to dive in the inner sea spots like Caverna da Sapata, Laje Dois Irmãos, Canal da Rata, Ilha do Meio, Pontal do Norte, Cordilheiras, among others.
