Diving offshore banks such as Formigas or Princess Alice is a world-class diving experience. Here you can find mantas, mobulas, devil rays and more. It really is something very special.

It isn't often that you find somewhere so close to home (if your home is in Europe) that blows you away with the quality of diving. If you like big fish and clear blue seas, diving in the Azores is a real winner.
