Your safety is our biggest responsibility. To ensure the only physical defect you take home is an uncontrollable arrival and set a few simple guidelines in place. In the unlikely event of an accident or illness we have an emergency evacuation plan for the Abrolhos Islands.
We have two tender vessels available to serve our needs, from diving and snorkelling to exploring a hidden bay. Our expedition leader will always ensure you have a safe trip whilst giving an interesting and interpretive excursion in comfort.
Snorkeling equipment is best purchased before you cruise. This will ensure a good fit for your mask and fins. Dive equipment can be hired from the local Dive shop
