eing a certified company, they carry out regular dives which you can do with or without your own equipment. The Alentejo Coast can be seen from a completely different angle. If you are not yet qualified but dream of diving regularly you can attend one of several diving courses, offering all who attend national and international certification.

In addition to these activities, there are also scientific outings for the observation of specific species, and archaeological and photographic dives. The Ecoalga also offers spear fishing, and sport fishing trips. Not forgetting the program to see the stars during the wonderful nights in this region with a sky drawing a universe as far as the eye can see.

This is a sea of possibilities for exploring one of the most beautiful places in the world, in and out of water. Don't hesitate, come and discover a different Alentejo and make of your stay an unforgettable one.
