Fleet and Security

Fleet

Fleet and Security – Usually we use the power catamaran „Reefkat“ for our diving tours as well as for our whale watching tours. The boat has a length of twelve meters and has 2 x 320 PS diesel engines. Our diving boat “Joselisa” is a 11,20 meter Rodmann Fisherman and offers space and comfort on board for eight to twelve divers. Both ships are equipped with the latest technology and are licenced for long trips.

Furthermore we possess eight offshore rubber boats which have space for twelve guests. Our offshore diving boats offer space for eight passengers.

Security

Each of our boats has an emergency plan and is equipped with satellite phone, a spot satellite tracker, a first aid kit and emergency oxygen facilities. Every trip outside the 12 mile zone also requires an inspection of the maritime police to check if the boat is up to standard. A qualified and experienced diving guide who is familiar with the locations is always present on board. All skippers are an old hand at navigating through the waters at the Azores and around Pico. The next decompression chamber is located in Horta and is one of the most modern in Europe.

Time for sharks.

Time for sharks. September has been a great month for us to see Blue Sharks. The spot near to Madalena was good every single time. The waiting time while chumming was longer than in the years before and it became a bug previlege to see the Blue sharks, as they are highly overfished. ButFrank Wirth´s crew of Pico Sport , Andy Stelter, João Rodrigues, Rui Romano, Emanuel Goulart, Fernando Maiato and all the rest made it possible. See a clip of Erich Pröll who is filming for ORF TV at the moment with us.
Even in October we are with the sharks and only yesterday Andy managed to get 3 big Blues around our boat.

45 minutes with Mako and Blue sharks.

Yesterday was a great day for shark diving at Pio. Andy Stelter got a massive Mako shark for more than 40 minutes and a big Blue came in as well. What a great experience and what a pevilege to meet some of the last remaining of their species ……

The shark weeks 2016 are open for booking now….dont wait, join Frank Wirth´s Pico Sport and the sharks in 2016.

Swimming with dolphins is a great experience.

Swimming with dolphins is a great experience.

While in many places like in egypt the dolphins are under heavy pressure, here, in the open sea of Pico Island the snorkeling with dolphins is sustainable.

Here we do not disturb the animals and they are free to swim whereever they want. Also we have strong regulations about how to operate with whales and dolphins.

Sometimes its just a short visit but often they allow us to dive into the deep blue with them. See this little clip to see how free and happy our dolphins are in the deep blue Ocean of Pico Island. Our new Dolphin packages 2016 are online. We cooperate with Dolpin Aliance and the Gesellschaft zur Rettung der Delfine. Therefore we have a special dolphin trip in June 2016 thats guided by the biologistst Angela Ziltener and Sina Kreiker.

Check our web page and reserve your dolphin dream holiday 2016 with us!
