Enjoy this unique opportunity to watch seahorses in their natural habitat.

The two resident identified species are: the long-snouted seahorse (hippocampus guttulatus), and the short-snouted seahorse (hippocampus hippocampus). Nevertheless you will see other species like octopus, cuttlefish and sea snail. Is also frequent to observe the traditional shellfish capture.

The skipper will guide you whilst providing valiable information, helping you during the activity to indentify the seahorses.
This activity is done inside the Ria Formosa lagoon system and the dive is preformed without an oxigen bottle (just a diving mask and snorkel).
The water is shallow enough even for non swimmers, yet a life vest can be provided.
We´ll go by boat to the spot where you can dive into the bottom of the Ria Formosa and observe the seahorses.
A diving mask and snorkel will be provided or you can bring your own.

RECOMENDATIONS: Bring Towel and swimsuit/bathing suit.
