Diving the Atlantic
07.10.2008 - 14.10.2008 25 °C
We have arrived in Canico de Baixa, it is a village halfway the airport and the capital of Madeira; Funchal.
We have our camp at a very nice hotel named Galomar, with very good service and very friendly personel. We discovered some very nice restaurants and I must say the seafood here is very good, but for you who do not like fish they have a wide variety of meat too, so do not let the fish stop you, to come and visit this tranquile island in the Atlantic.
Yesterday we made our first dive in the waters surrounding the hotel and I must say the water is very nice. It may be almost half October but the water temperature is perfect. It is still a very agreable 23 degrees celcius at about 20 metres so diving is good.
Okay you will not find coral reefs here, but diving here has it own charms. Like any other place you have to see it at it own merits.
The wheather is nice, 25 degrees and sunny, and the water is fine. This combined with the good food, what else does a person need.
And next too all of this I can practice the Portugese language which I have learned, so for me it is a win-win situation
