  • Simply amazing! The nature of this place is impressive. There are several species of fish, corals, turtles and birds that I observed. I went with the company Open Horizon. The journey lasted 2:30 by boat, leaving from Caravelas to 07:30, coming back to 18:00. The ride cost $364, with the rate of Abrolhos included. I paid $50.00 for diving guide take some pictures underwater (66 in total). On the boat we had fruit, biscuits, water, juices, coffee and soda the will. Were also two meals, pasta and salad first and later hot dogs. The Board staff was amazing. Very helpful and excellent tips. Getting there the ICMbio staff is also very professional, explaining the rules of the Park and why each of the rules exist. Did the snorkeling, which was already included in the price of the tour (with cylinder was R $250,00 for immersion). The nature of the place is wonderful. Got swim accompanied a turtle for about 100 meters. If you can get slowly underwater, without scaring the fish, they are very close to the people. One of the species it is the Blue Parrot fish, but there are many other species, more than I can remember to describe. The guide said that the day I was supposed to be visibility in some 12 meters, and you can get up to 20 meters. The best time for visibility is between December and February. Between July and November is the season of whales, I didn't see it, but from what I have described, must be a ride amazing! Recommend to everyone! Who likes to dive just enjoying more, but to be just floating around will see much beautiful too!

  • Abrolhos is a beautiful place to 70 km from the coast a set of Islands with several animals, clear and shallow waters, great for dipping. Yet only an island can be visited. The company we chose-Abrolhos Vessels-was fair and complied with the ride. Its employees are polite and helpful and the vessel offers comfort, as far as possible. However is a slow vessel took almost 4 hours q to traverse 70 km. Realized q other boats were faster. This made the journey took a lot and our stay there was short.

  • Very beautiful place, it looks like you're swimming in an aquarium. We went on a catamaran to the archipelago, travel a bit, 3 hours long, but worth it.
