Cabo Verde Diving

Came back from Cabo Verde yesterday and finally got my diving pictures sorted out. Wanted to share some shots as the diving over there was very much impressive and the guys from Cabo Verde Diving centre did an amazing job.

Noticed that with the rising amount of total dives and experience it becomes difficult to keep the WOW factor and challenge going. Have to admit that the dive sites in Cabo Verde were not very challenging, however there was always something interesting to see underwater. From small wrecks over relaxing reef dives to an impressive dive site with many yellow soft corals and lots of my favourite moray eels 😀 As pictures speak louder than words I won’t be boring you with lots of text this time…. Enjoy the underwater pics.

The best dive site around the island. On 26 meters I saw yellow soft corals, schools of fish, a nurse shark, lobsters and stingrays. Very much thumbs up.
