Sharkweeks Midi

Escaping from the daily routine – the Sharkweeks Midi at the Azores are the ultimate programme for shark diving. The offshore banks around Pico offer excellent possibilities to dive with sharks at terrific sighting distances. The blue sharks and mako sharks approach the diver up to arm’s length. The programme is combined with a diving day at one of the best dive spots in the world in the Mid-Atlantic, at Princess Alice Bank. Here you dive with shoals of Mobulas and pelagic fish. Furthermore you observe the whales of the Mid-Atlantic.

The weather policy

All our programs at the Azores are strongly dependent on weather and sea conditions. Usually the weather during the summer month is very stable, the Middle-Atlantic is even known as a region of calm. However, there can be troughs and storms which are incalculable. In case of cancelled dives due to weather conditions we offer alternative activities which we charge against accordingly. Boat trips or dives which are cancelled until the end of your trip are credited for a new trip or we refund a part of the payed amount.

A great white shark is still missing in our collection but it still to come. During the time of whaling a lot of those animals were sighted.
