Why Go Diving In Portugal


Portugal offers a variety of diving locations. Portugal’s mainland coastline runs over 1200km, add Portugal’s islands, the Azores and Madeira, into the mix, and the diversity offered by these numerous locations are perhaps the best in Europe. 

Pelagics such as whale sharks, manta rays, devil rays, sunfish and a variety of whales put Portugal on the diving map, and while it’s not somewhere you hear touted as a dive destination, we would recommend not missing the chance to explore should you find yourself in the locale. 

Wreck divers will love the variety of wrecks in this region; from 400-year-old wooden relics to casualties of The Battle of Lagos in 1759,  WW I submarine ‘kills,’ WWII wrecks that include a bomber and a collection of four modern battleships sunk to create an artificial reef.
