Description

Tailored diving vacations with the only catamaran sailing cruises in the Azores

Dive in the Azores is a unique experience and a truly place at the top of the list of world dive destinations. The aim of the Water and Wind team is to make sure every detail of your holiday is planned to perfection so that the itinerary will  have the exact requirements. You can just relax and enjoy your diving holiday.

An unspoiled paradise in the Atlantic with spectacular volcanic landscape, whales, dolphins and great diving and hardly anyone knows about it! Due to its location the Azores has an abundance of life, from multi-coloured nudibranchs to record breaking mako sharks and a combination of local sites and offshore sites. Local sites have interesting underwater rock formations with plentiful marine life, offshore sites have diving in the blue and virtually guaranteed manta rays, blue sharks, occasional makos and even whale sharks and hammerheads.

Water and Wind is dedicated to diving liveaboards, charters and general sailing experiences in the Azores

An amazing experience on a beautifully equipped catamaran, that has been custom built for diving. It is very comfortable and has four cabins so there will never be more than eight people on board. This catamaran has brilliant panoramic vistas from the saloon and allow even more natural light to illuminate the interior. Up on deck, life is even more relaxing than ever. The Water & Wind catamaran features additional lounges for lazy afternoons.

Enjoy the extended range of delicious and tasty dishes that will be served onboard during the cruise. Special dietary requests can be honored by stating your needs on the booking form.

You can also take island excursions during your trip, visiting the beautiful and unique sites and cities of the Azores.

The Water and Wind Catamaran is provided with snorkel equipment and swimming ladders, compressor and diving gear onboard (the only catamaran in the islands with diving liveaboards) and an Oceanic Class Safety equipment. Diving equipment rental available onboard. Optional equipment can be supplied on request, such as Wifi, mobile phone, or others you might need. Contact the team of Padi Travel and we will be glad to help you out with anything you need!
