Best of 2019

Photos and videos were shot on the Southern Atlantic coast between Rio de Janeiro and Santos. We made 22 dives in 3 different locations. The most northern one was Angra dos Reis (RJ) where we dived with Pousada Jamanta dive center. The dive spots are not far from the coast; there is some current and we saw lots of sea horses.
The second location we dived was Ilhabela, a bit further south;where we dived with scubadodive ;lots of current, there are underwater ropes for divers to secure. The visibility is limited, like in Zeeland in the Netherlands. We encountered lookdowns, a most unusual-looking carangid.
Our third dive location was Laje de Santos at an hour and a half by speedboat off the coast of São Vicente, next to Santos harbour (SP)where we dived with ATM diver. Current and visibility can vary, but there are lots of wildlife.

Our dives in "Parque Estadual Marinho da Laje de Santos"
