Scuba Diving in Rio de Janeiro Brazil

5 06 2009


Arraial do Cabo Marine Reserve is considered the best scuba diving on the southern coast of Brazil.

Located 2 hours by car from Rio de Janeiro, Arraial do Cabo is part of the Costa do Sol (Sunny Coast), which also includes Búzios and Cabo Frio.

The turquoise water of Arraial do Cabo is teeming with marine lifeturtles, sea horses, moray eels, colorful coral and some exotic tropical fish like the famous Holacanthus Ciliaris (Queen Angelfish).

I went diving there in 2008, saw a turtle caught up in a fishing net, not nice. Great dive site though.
