Put on your snorkel gear and embark on an adventure in the Azores. With this Sao Jorge Snorkeling Tour you'll explore the most impressive landscapes of the entire archipelago. 

Sao Jorge Snorkeling Tour

When booking you can choose between three different options to snorkel in Sao Jorge. All include pick-up, transport, English speaking guide and snorkelling equipment. Below you can see the details of each one:

Simão Dias Natural Pool Snorkel (4 hours)

We'll set out for the Fajã de Ouvidor viewpoint to enjoy magnificent views of the northern coast of Sao Jorge. Then, we'll go down to the coast to start a snorkelling experience in the Simão Dias natural pool.

Once in the water, we'll see all kinds of species such as turtles or tuna. Take a good look at the cracks in the rocks, they have some really peculiar shapes. After an hour and a half of diving, you'll be able to investigate, rest and have a drink on your own before being taken to the collection point. 

Urzelina Snorkel (4 hours)

After picking you up, we'll head to the municipality of Urzelina, to snorkel and explore the waters of the southern part of the island of Sao Jorge. With our gear on, we'll start a one and a half hour tour to admire the volcanic basalt rocks, the cavities in the cliffs and the colourful schools of fish - we might even spot a few dolphins! Afterwards, you can enjoy some free time to eat and relax before finishing the activity. 

Sao Jorge Snorkel (8 hours)

If you choose this full day option, we'll snorkel at different locations in Sao Jorge. We'll head for the Fajã de Ouvidor viewpoint, to make a brief stop to admire the immensity of the Atlantic.

Then, we'll arrive at the Simão Dias natural pool. For an hour and a half, we'll investigate the bottom of this crystalline water pool. As well as watching different species, you'll be able to jump into the water from the rocks and, at 12 pm, you'll have free time to have lunch. 

With renewed energy, we'll set off on a journey through the volcanic mountains to reach the Fajã de Santo Amaro beach. There, you'll snorkel and encounter white marlins, turtles, swordfish and manta rays - the sea scenery is spectacular! Next, we will go to the Urzelina area, where the most adventurous can approach a shipwreck from the Second World War. Impressive!

  • Simão Dias natural pool and Urlezina snorkel can be done at 9 am or 2 pm.
