Advice for diving Caneiro dos Meros in Portugal

By an agreement between fishermen and divers due to the presence of large and friendly dusky groupers and the fishermen are the first 'guards' of the reserve.

This is the best place in Europe to dive with dusky grouper _______________ACCESS: by boat (3 minutes from Porto da Casa, Corvo ; 50 minutes from Flores)__________________DIVE TYPE: coastal__________MAX DEPTH: 40m__________AVARAGE DEPTH : 25m__________MIN DEPTH: 14m__________DIVING EXPERINECE: Advanced Open Water_____CURRRENTS: 3/5_____LIFE: 5/5__________ENVIRONMENT: 4/5__________OVERALL RAT: 5/5_________VOLUNTARY MARINE RESERVE_____HYPERBARIC CHAMBER: Health center of Santa Cruz of Flores, Flores island - 13 miles/approximately 50 minutes by boat (depends on the weather conditions)

The Mediterranean climate means that air temperatures are mild in the Azores year round. The sea temperature is comfortable both in winter and summer, making it an ideal destination for nautical sports and scuba diving. Due to its geographical position and mountainous terrain, the Madeira archipelago experiences a subtropical climate with temperatures varying between 24ºC in summer and 19ºC in winter. The sea temperature in both the Azores and Madeira var...
