Suunto makes diving simpler in Portugal
Founded an Chance to contact endangered flora
Suunto - Diving enthusiasts know what I'm referring to: hardly the summer time (and when temperatures aren't so hot), there's an irresistible urge to fit with prestigious branded items such as Suunto , and (re) discover the maritime treasures that are hidden in the Portuguese aquatic world.
Sesimbra is among the places of choice. There's not any deficiency of motives. Let's begin with highlighting Ponta da Passagem, which is located in the vicinity of Cape Espichel. Counting a passage from east to west - and that even gives it its name - this place stands out to get the cliffs that be able to safeguard a little bay where, generally speaking, the diving action starts at about eight meters deep.
Finding the famous laminaria - practically extinct - is one of the best reasons to get a sportsman to "catch" his Suunto gear and immerse himself into those oceans.
The Lion's Stone is just another area of intense significance for people who do not survive without diving. Especially a quieter dive. First of all, one should underline its configuration, which resembles in the space the shape of the feline's head.
Located close to the vent of Sesimbra, the stone rests to a floor out of four to 13 meters deep, with big rocks (to the north) and sand (to the south). Here, it's likely to contact cuttlefish, octopuses, sea breams, cape ... Also notice the sponges and anemones that line the caves with the most diverse colors.
The Berlengas archipelago is an invitation to explore debris and caves
The reasons for diving in Portugal, using materials from Suunto , extend beyond the region of Sesimbra.
This is the case of the Berlengas archipelago , located 10 km from Peniche and known as the world's first safe area. This collection of islands is characterized by its flexibility: through Suunto, newcomer sportsmen can begin by practicing easy levels of diving and also the more experienced will challenge themselves with much more complicated activities and have here a glimpse of some string of schools.
Sea bass and sargos are only a couple of those examples. Lovers of investigating caves and wrecks also have a tendency to be lax with all the Berlengas archipelago.
Frequently, snorkelers take their Suunto gear and venture into the Garajau and Porto Santo Reserves. Located in the archipelago of Madeira, these places are extremely well known for all their color and for the caves that arouse such curiosity.
Remember that Porto Santo offers a unique experience for sportsmen, resembling even the tropical tides. Between one and another wave, it's still possible to find mantas, salemas and sea lions.
