Sao-Tome Dive Trip

Sao Tome is also known as the African Galapagos or Africa’s Heaven on Earth

Uninhabited until being discovered by the Portuguese in the late 15th century, Sao Tome and Principe is a tiny archipelago situated in the Gulf of Guinea. It became a outpost of the slave trade under Portuguese rule, with sugar cane, cocoa and coffee all prominent exports until the Portuguese left in the mid-1970s.

The islands’ remoteness – situated roughly 260 kilometers off the coast of Gabon has helped maintain a remarkably varied ecosystem. Lush rainforests rich with endemic plants and species cover large swathes of both islands, while white sandy beaches and crystal- clear waters are plentiful.

It remains one of the world’s least-visited places....

Join us exploring this isolated paradise both above and below the surface

Sao Tome Dive Sites

São Tomé is truly one of the last forgotten paradises that we can find on the planet. Under the sea the surprises are far from

ending, as there are countless sites still to be explored. Coral reefs are very rich and in excellent health, and there is a surprising

number of unique endemic species of all sorts of animals and Corals. Awesome dives await off the coast of Sao Tome. The

pinnacles of Pedra are excellent places to see huge barracuda. The two formations poke above the surface, stretching to

meet the sun. You can see octopi in the cracks, as well as a variety of eels. Down at the bottom, nurse sharks relax, waiting

for night to fall. The north of Sao Tome is full of mini-Caves, BIG marine life and shipwrecks. The South has Volcanic

tubes/swim-throughs and more macro marine life.

Sao Tome

Floating in the Gulf of Guinea, this two-island nation, Africa's second-smallest, blends natural wonders with a gripping history. São Tomé & Príncipe (STP) is amazingly safe and welcoming to visitors, particularly ecotourists, for whom the advancing jungle is a delight. This is particularly true on tidy and unspoiled Príncipe, an island of just 7000 people. A canopy of green broken by spires of primordial rock, Príncipe is a magnificent Lost World, offering fantastic beaches, jungle exploration, snorkeling, diving,

fishing, birdwatching, and a handful of interesting & Luxurious accommodations.

The dive trip will be split between time in the North of the island and the south of the island, The North of the Island has the capital which is called Sao Tome, along with a variety of restaurants and unique shops it has the infamous Rum Bar! With home made and distilled rums with a variety of flavors. The south of the island is very remote but has incredibly beautiful beaches and excursions into the rain forest.

Both in the North and the South of the island the daily plan is breakfast, two dives in the morning followed by Lunch and an excursion in the afternoon.
