  • For some time we wanted to go to Thistles and finally got. It was better than we thought, it's very exciting to be surrounded by those huge whales. Everywhere you look there's a. The archipelago is beautiful, paradise, sorry that at that time we went (early September) the water was low visibility for diving, but still we will return just to immerse yourself in another time.

  • The nature in the region of the archipelago is fantastic. The color of the transparent sea and with many corals, fish and birds of the region, ideal for snorkelling or diving cylinder. On the way out at sea, depending on the season, many humpback whales can be seen. The region is preserved and so it is not possible to stay or remain in the Islands, only for outings and guided tours. I went with the Abrolhos Vessels from the city of Caravelas, and recommend. Are 12:00 on the high seas.

  • About of 70 kilometers of Caravelas (the nearest town), is one of the most beautiful national parks of Brazil. Established within the archipelago of albrolhos, the Park is a ride in both for the whale coast. With clear waters and a beautiful diversity, was one of the rides that I've always wanted to do. The end and beginning of the year, on the incidence of solar rays, is the most propitious time for anyone who wants to dive; those who seek to observe the largest mammals on Earth, the months between autumn and winter are the best. There are a multitude of excursions, and chat back to live aboard, fits your interest and decide to Pocket, but a day satisfies the desire to know the place. Hire the tours in Caravelas is more into account! Trivia: the Park Headquarters is in Caravelas, with lectures and tracks by mangrove. The lighthouse was built in the 19th century, due to the dangerous reefs that gave name to the place (open your eyes, in Portuguese). Only two islands can be visited, the Siriba, with the accompaniment of guides and Santa Bárbara (quickly for the baptism of diving).
