Check below the story:
Rio Grande do Norte, 410 km from the famous beaches and clear warm waters have a special outing that attracts more people: the plunge.
Maracajaú located 60 km north of Natal and is one of the scripts for those who want to dive. The tour can be done with or without the use of the cylinder with compressed air. The four meters in depth the sunlight reflects all shades of marine life. Anyone can dive. No need to travel. Just a little breather. Who wants to do deeper dives must pass the yacht club for Christmas.
To make scuba diving, there are two alternatives: either to make the full course which takes around 16 hours, including lectures and practices, or else the program first experiment.
For the first dive we Arabaianinha up to 20 miles offshore. Sunlight barely reaches. With the help of the flashlight you can see the coral red, yellow.
We are heading to the stop of needles that is 14 miles from the coast, which is equivalent to 25 kilometers or so. Is 90 minutes away and is the second best diving point of Brazil. Loses to Fernando de Noronha.
“Stop the needles is recommended that a certified diver, but a diver who has a good experience,” says Afonso Melo, a diving instructor.
Already in the fall we discover the reason for the name: the pillars of limestone coated with coral reefs stand needles. We passed a school of Mozambique and go into natural caves carved by erosion over the centuries.
The tour is coming to an end. Who comes, get the feeling that even under water beaches here enchant tourists.
