Blue Hole

One of the most popular dive sites in Madeira! The entry point is directly at the promenade Reis Magos, in Canico de Baixo. The site can be dived from land as well as by boat.

At the exit you will find huge shoals of fish such as yellowfin grunts and golden storm. You will also find our loyal conger eel here. With a little bit of luck we also meet a monk seal.
