Preparation and Departure

All passengers must arrive at the agency at 7:30 a.m. on the day of the tour. At 8:00 a.m., we will head to Acuario I Pier, where you will meet your dive instructor and begin your navigation.

First Dive at Hitler's Caves

We will sail to the dive site called Hitler’s Caves, where we will carry out our first dive of the day. Here, passengers will gear up with the diving equipment and receive a briefing from the dive instructor.

Excitement in the Depths

In this immersion, passengers will jump into the sea and follow a line connected from the surface to the caves on the seabed. Once there, passengers will enter the cave one by one, depending on the instructor’s instructions. This dive also lasts approximately 45 minutes with a maximum depth of 35 meters. You will have the opportunity to observe sea lions, rays, reef sharks, pufferfish, barracudas, tuna, turtles, sea urchins, different types of starfish, moray eels, lobsters, octopuses, and more. After leaving the cave, passengers will continue diving around the site until returning to the surface line, depending on air reserves.

Rest

After the dive, passengers will return to the boat to enjoy snacks and drinks. There will be a break of approximately 1 hour before their second dive.

Explore the Wreck of Carawa

They will sail for about 15 minutes to reach the second dive site called Carawa, a ship that sank approximately 100 years ago. Here, you will be able to observe different species, as a large reef has formed around the ship’s hull over time. In this dive, passengers will jump into the sea and then follow a line connected from the surface to the sunken ship. Once there, passengers will completely circumnavigate the sunken ship before returning to the surface line. This dive lasts approximately 45 minutes and offers the opportunity to observe sea lions, rays, pufferfish, barracudas, turtles, sea urchins, different types of starfish, moray eels, lobsters, octopuses, and more.
