Our Partnerships: Haliotis Scuba Diving
Today I'm going to talk about one of ours partnerships, Haliotis and great experience that is Scuba Diving in Berlengas Island.
It was in Peniche that started the Haliotis project. Infrastructures above average and an optimized operating mode made this project a reference in the Portuguese world of diving. But nothing this would have been possible without Berlengas Island.
Since 14, in D. Afonso V reign Berlengas have the status of protected area. They are certainly the most appealing area for diving in the Portuguese mainland. Their famous visibilities and sea walth are tremendous appeal for divers who dream with exciting experiences.
Those who already experienced the dives in Gorgonians walls and see lots of pelagic in Autumn know what is exceed the emotions achieved here.
Bays of blue water with a lot of fiches, rocks, shoal of Sargus... there is a lot of dive spots for all divers levels.
Haliotis in Peniche is an example of quality and functionality. Continuously improved, in 2012 we got another boat, Lascaris, which once again become the reference for diving in Portugal.
Sunfish is the ex libris of Berlengas. His scientific name is Mola mola and it's the largest known fish with bones. It can reach 3 meters of height and 2300 kg weight. The large female can put around 300 000 000 eggs.
It has curious behaviors like "relax" in the surface in side and its brightness is reflected and visible from a distance. It also jumps out of the water which makes a great show.
In conclusion, it's a wonderful experience you can't miss and it's possible, go check the prices at this Link or in our website www.areiabrancabeachhostel.com
