CAPE VERDE DIVING HOLIDAYS

The Cape Verde islands are dreamlands for any Scuba diver that would like to have an unforgettable experience in deep, wreck and cave diving. The coral reefs host the most beautiful underwater fauna of the Caribbean. During the warmer weather, you are likely to see very long trumpet fish, massive loggerhead or green turtles up to one metre in diameter, enormous manta rays, the largest balloon fish you will find anywhere and schools of dolphins. Cape Verde presents an underwater world of caves, canyons, massive rock formations, ledges and sharp wall drop-offs. In most of the areas sea life is plentiful. All of these caves and crevices are home to fish, lobster, eel and in many areas, intensely yellow polyps.

Cape Verde is a country in West Africa that are comprised of a group of islands in the Atlantic Ocean, west of Senegal. In the days of slave trading, Cape Verde received its first occupants: West African slaves brought over to do the Portuguese colonists' dirty work. It also became a significant strategical stopping-point for America-bound slave ships from West Africa. Though the slave trade has long since come to an end, Cape Verde remains an important midway port. An increasing number of tourists, however, are discovering the joys that Cape Verde itself offers.
 
The main reason for visiting Cape Verde is to see the spectacular natural scenery; white sand beaches on the island of Sal, imposing volcanic peaks on Sao Nicolau and Fogo or verdant hillside and jungle on Santiago. Conditions in Cape Verde are excellent for a variety of watersports, particularly sailing and windsurfing. Most watersports activities are based on the island of Sal.
