"IT STARTED WITH OUR DEAR FRIEND FIRST DIVE.." Arraial do Cabo by janaina

Arraial do Cabo Travel Guide: 15 reviews and 64 photos

Saturday night,paulo's home,a bbq.
He always dreamed to dive,and we are trying to convince him that,though he's a little claustrofoby,in the deep sea the feeling is like an open space!!
Than he said,he would feel too close inside all the equipment..resumed:took a long night conversation,but it came to a result..he agreed!!
Next step,to find a dive master who will have all the patience to understand our fellow's fears..who??
Many names came up,but the best was Carlinhos,from Arraial Do Cabo.
A short phone call,and all aranged:in 10 days,during a long weekend,he'll do it..well,Carlinhos didn't forget to tell Paulo his first dive was in Arraial too(but didn't mentioned he was only 5 years old then!!).
Here pictures will be from his dive,but info will follow about this wonderful place!Picture:Paulao thinks:should I???
BON VIRTUALE VOYAGE!!

Arraial is about 160km from Rio,just side-by-side with Cabo Frio.
We took 2 cars.Temperatures were amazing that weekend,around 26-28 celsius,mean,not hot for us here!
The city is located in a region called:
"Lakes Region".Its considered the best Brazilian site for dive,and an amazing place,as the natives say:better,only the sky!!
Here,the trip staff,except Paulao,who took the picture!!

We took the boat from "Dos Anjos"(angels' beach)
beach,where,from its port all the trip/dive or big boats leave the place.
This beach was where the sewage of the area "met" the ocean,and it was closed for a long long time.
Nowadays,thxs God,it had been despoluted finally,and it is open again!

Pros and Cons
  • In a nutshell:PAULO'S FIRST DIVE WAS JUST AN EXCUSE:WE LOVE THIS PLACE!!

    We dove with Mr. Diver in July 2007...they were so great! Professional, friendly and accommodating. I would highly recommend them.

    Hey Jana, this wonderful pictures from Arraial do Cabo are reminding me the day I have been there. Talvez este ano em Novembro vou ver se podemos nos viajar pra la, conhecer um pouco melhor a "Regiao dos Lagos"!

    Janaina,

    these really bring back memories from a couple of years ago when i stayed with a friend from Cabo Frio.. the beaches are the best.. also you must go to Buzios but i am sure you visit there often!

    beijos,
    Jimmy
