Brazil's Best Scuba Diving: Day Trip to Arraial do Cabo from Rio

Brazil's Best Scuba Diving: Day Trip to Arraial do Cabo from Rio

Down where its wetter, darling it's better, under the sea? Ever wanted to visit the world of the ocean and see what the fish see?

Enjoy exploring the Brazilian marine depths and discovering the different species of fauna and flora in the South Atlantic Ocean with this Arraial Do Cabo Diving experience.


Between 5:30 and 6 am we'll pick you up from your hotel in Rio de Janeiro, and get on a car that will take us two and a half hours away to Arraial do Cabo.

We'll arrive around 8:30 am and board a boat at 9:00 am to take us out to the dive point. Meanwhile, for 30 minutes, an instructor will teach us the basics to dive safely. Then you'll be ready to jump in!

Once we have our equipment on, we'll submerge into the water and explore the depths of the Atlantic. If you have PADI certification, you'll have the opportunity to carry out two 30 minute immersions. If not, you'll enjoy one 30 minute immersion.

When we finish, we'll return to Rio de Janeiro and take you to your hotel between 4 and 5 pm.
