Formigas & Dollabarat Reef in São Miguel

The dive in the Natural Reserve of Formigas and Dollabarat is one of our most popular tours. With two hours on a boat , this trip gives you the opportunity to dive in the middle of the Atlantic Ocean, seeing a big and infinite blue, with the possibility to observe the passage of the amazing resident marine life. This Natural Reserve, 41 nautical miles from Vila Franca do Campo, allows us to enjoy this gift of nature!

For this dive, it is necessary for divers to have some experience, good buoyancy control, and feel comfortable in that kind of environment, the open sea. This is a full-day trip, scheduled from 7:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m., and includes two dives, some cookies made in the Azores, fruit, and drinking water. Depending on the sea conditions, we schedule one dive at Ilhéus das Formigas and another at Dollabarat Reef!

This program is available in July, August, and September.


  • International Diving Certification, minimum of level 2, and a coastal dive with us before the trip.
