Full description
Paraty is one of Brazil's top dive destinations and is known for its rich marine life and high underwater visibility.

Your 40-minute dive will take place only after all the safety information is passed during the boat ride to the site. You will be accompanied by a professional instructor throughout the entirety of your dive. You'll have all the equipment you need to communicate and breathe underwater on your dive between 13-26 feet. Discover the colorful underwater life up close and personally.

The actual dive, experience, staff and the friendliness were amazing. The Paraty office staff amazing and helpful! I think the company is excellent. However, two important points for improvement. A) not knowing that Uber is not available here left me panicking and rushing to the Paraty tour office to get help to get to the marina for my dive. Please ensure travellers are informed that there is no Uber in Paraty. The company should give local taxi numbers so they can to get to and from the marina without a worry. B) Also inform us of the name of the boat or company office location at the marina before we get there because I was again worried as I had no name of who I was meeting. A local marina staff lady was my only help and she spoke a little English which helped massively. And thankfully I had the office staff on WhatsApp to get the information from. If I did not have data I would be lost and angry. But not this time.
