Scuba Diving in Rio de Janeiro takes place in Arraial do Cabo city, a chaming little fishing village just 02 hours away from Rio city.
Our Scuba Diving Tour in Rio de Janeiro, takes you to the outskirt of Rio city, to a little town with a fishing village appeal, called Arraial do Cabo. It is located about 180 km (112 miles) north of Rio. Although it preserves the look of a fishing village, tourism has been increasing lately, due to the excellent conditions for scuba diving. Beautiful rock formations, sunk ships, corals, reefs, turtles and even barracudas can be seen in its clear waters. And that`s what makes this little town one of the best in Brazil to dive at. First time divers are welcome.

Short Terms and Conditions:
In very rare ocasions, in case of sudden weather and wind changes, the Coast Guard may prevent the departure from taking place, without notice. It is a situation we cannot predict, that causes a lot of trouble and frustration. In those cases, we will try to dive in Cabo Frio or Búzios, which are nearby towns, that offer similar sealife and diving conditions, at no extra costs.
If diving is not possible in those towns, in order to minimize the frustration and our losses, we will offer a sightseeing tour in Buzios with a partial refund. The final cost is R$ 249,00 per person if we have 02 people in the tour, or R$ 199,00 per person if we have 03 people or more. The difference is refunded normally via paypal. Despite the fact that this happens in very rare ocasions, ustomers must agree with it, before booking the trip.
Avoid booking Scuba Diving during carnival season, new years ( december 30th, 31st and january 1st) as well as the first or last days of local holidays. Yet, if you cannot avoid those periods , be aware that we cannot be held responsible for any extra time spent in traffic.
