When your passion for diving takes you to different underwater worlds... You like freshwater environments, new landscapes, different species you cannot find in the ocean or just because it´s your thing!

This program is dedicated to taking you diving in exotic waters, surrounded by a different and rural landscape, away from the typical seaside you associate with diving. Here there are no diving centres. Before, there were villages here, people working the fields, and children running free and playing on the land. Now, this is the scenario of some of the most appreciated dives for those who like to dive in freshwater.


This exclusive dive includes

Everything you need from the moment we pick you up at your hotel and bring you back. Of course, your family and friends are included. That's the whole point. You will share this fantastic day. You will all be going to a place not accessible to everybody. A place so beautiful, where you all will feel relaxed and blessed to visit during your holidays. The most important thing is that you all will be together. Imagine doing your favourite dive, having your friends or family with you, knowing they are also having a great time. Yes, the non-diving crew will enjoy the day and the place, doing... stuff. What is stuff? Well, rather not tell you right now, because if you know, maybe you'll think twice... That is also exclusivity in diving, which we call an Exclusive Dive!

Located in the Zezere River, southwest of Tomar in the Santarem District, the Castelo de Bode Dam (translated) is one of the tallest structures and has one of the largest reservoirs in Portugal. The construction started in 1945 and finished in 1951; it has been used for electric power production, water supply, especially for Lisbon city, flood protection, and recreational activities. Regarding sports, we can mention windsurfing, rowing, sailing, jet skiing, and of course, diving. The main area is Albufeira de Castelo de Bode and its easy access by road makes it the perfect place for all recreational activities. Regarding diving, we have some exciting spots here... who would say? So, we have a village, a bridge, and a mill wheel, all underwater. This Dam has breathless landscapes, so do not forget your camera; you will surely take some fantastic pics home to show your friends and family. Do not forget that you are in Portugal, so expect to find some fantastic restaurants to chill and relax in after the dive.

For you, diving is going underwater in ways that others only dream. You´ve taken the next step, and now you don't stop. Going deeper, visiting almost not diveable shipwrecks, or exploring dark caves, is your way of feeling the pleasure, but also the thrill of a dive.

Deep diving, wreck diving or cave diving, Portugal Dive can build an advanced and exclusive dive program hosting those divers that achieved higher maestri diving to sites and spots in Portugal, away from the trivial scuba diving.

Your diving is more demanding, and so is the support Portugal Dive can provide, helping you planning this higher risk dives and supporting its implementation.
