Scuba Diving in Southern Brazil

This is my favorite beach resort in southern Brazil, mostly because it is quite near (2,5 hours driving time) from Curitiba, my hometown, and it is the departing harbor for some of the great escapades for scuba diving in the southern brazilian shore.

Arvoredo Marine Biological Reserve

The "Arvoredo Marine Biological Reserve" is located between the Bombinhas peninsula and the Santa Catarina Island (where the state capital Florianopolis is located).

Usually there are diving agencies both from Bombinhas or from Florianopolis direct to the reserve.

Visit http://www.arvoredo.org.br to know the reserve better on the internet. (unfortunately only in Portuguese).

Pros and Cons
  • Pros:Small town, nice beaches, near home
  • Cons:What could be bad when scuba diving?
  • In a nutshell:My next-door beach paradise
