After picking you up, we'll set off for the eastern part of Funchal and hop on the cable car to Garajau Bay. As we descend 200 metres you'll have bird's eye view of the magnificent crystalline waters of this natural reserve.

On the beach, the instructor will give a brief introduction to the diving techniques and equipment. When the safety lesson is over, it'll be time to dive in!

In this area of the island, the water temperature ranges from 17 to 26 degrees, which favours the unique marine biodiversity in Funchal. Under the water you'll meet colourful fish, rays, incredible marine plants and much more!
