About us

Boavistadiving has been established in 2013 as the first dive center of Estoril Beach in the Town of Sal Rei on Boa Vista Island. The dive center operates only during summer season, from May until November, when the diving and weather conditions are the best, with an average water temperature of 25/26 Celsius degrees.

Boavistadiving is a PADI Dive Center which offers diving and PADI courses for both beginners and already certificated divers. All services are provided by our professional, international team of PADI Divemasters and Instructors, who will take care of you, during your underwater adventures.


When you first clap eyes on Boa Vista’s beaches, you’d be forgiven for thinking you were in the Caribbean. This tiny island in Cape Verde is wrapped in dazzling white-sand beaches in total of 55km, all tickled by turquoise waters.

Boavistadiving is located on one of these beaches, namely on Estoril Beach, in the town of Sal Rei, on the northwestern coast of the island of Boa Vista, in eastern Cape Verde. Sal Rei is the island's main urban settlement with many options of accommodation, with different standard and price range.

Boavistadiving is just at walking distance from most of the hotels in Sal Rei, what allows tourists to reach our dive center without need of additional transportation.

IMPORTANT: Please note that between December and March, we will not accept any online bookings for scuba diving and snorkeling in Boa Vista, as we are not able to guarantee daily operation due to difficult sea conditions. Bookings must be made physically onsite.
