There are four fantastic dive centres on the islands; Santana, Ilheu das Rolas, Sao Tome city and Principe. Each offers an exciting range of dive experiences and we can tailor these to your level. Due to the islands equatorial location, the conditions are ideal for diving holidays for most of the year with good visibility, warm sea temperature (27 to 30 celsius) and an abundance of marine life.

Within a few minutes of being in the water, you’ll be diving amongst snapper, parrot fish, barracuda, nurse sharks, moray eels, turtles, gorgonian sea fans and volcanic boulders covered in colourful yellow, orange and red hard corals. At the time of writing, there is no hyperbaric chamber available on either of the islands.
