                     Tropical scuba-diving in Brazil                      

In Brazil, there are two famous diving spots: one near Buzios and one in Fernando de Noronha. Buzios has sea currents from the equator on one side and the south pole on the other, as a result it has as many beaches with warm waters as cooler waters. The main diving spot is located in Arraial do Cabo. The depth varies between 12m and 50m in places. The cold waters of Arraial do Cabo (21 ° C on average), are deep and rich in nutrients which explains the astonishing variety of sealife.
