  • The place is beautiful, but I expected more of the reef ... don't know if it's because the corals are hard and not soft and super colorful. The trip to the Park takes more or less 3 hours. We went from catamaran and we passed several humpback whales, which are a SideShow. Is very worthwhile, even to be diving with snorkel.

  • Get to know Abrolhos was without a doubt the most amazing ride I've ever done on the high seas. The journey is long, 3 hours and 3 on the back, but sailing in a sea blue, which only the Northeast has. I was hoping to enjoy the humpback whales that from June to October come breed but they had already left for my frustration. On the other hand the dive has been something indescribable. The Abrolhos marine fauna is lush. Is only allowed down on Siriba Island to traverse a short excerpt and learn a little about boobys, without disturbing the peace of these birds living there and reproduce. In diving, is not allowed to touch the coral, not with your hands or fins, not to interfere in habitat and in preservation. Still worth it. Those who want to travel there, will shell out good money, because the tour is expensive. If you want to save the Blue airline, which flies to Caravelas because that's where the Catamaran, duly inspected by the ICMBIO. So will save the transfer that is expensive. Besides, the tours hired directly in companies that make the route, with headquarters in caravelas, come out cheaper than from other neighboring municipalities. In catamará which makes the transportation, the tourist will have breakfast on the high seas, light lunch, many fruits and juices, and in the afternoon, also a coffee and fruit. Take camera to photograph the dive as are definitely wonderful pictures. The hint.

  • All that I can express about Thistles will be little in the face of such grandeur of nature on this site, do not forget to visit this place is a Caribbean preserved in full. We dive with fish and sea turtles, this place is unforgettable.
