The island of São Miguel is the largest, most populated in the Azores and is also called ”The Green Island”. But being the biggest and most populated should not trigger you to skip it for diving. Here you can frequently see schools of mackerel, barracudas, yellow-fin tuna and trigger fish.  Common sting rays grow to enormous size in these waters and you can even have an encounter with large manta rays here sometimes. And all that with a avaerage visibility around 30 metres!

 

So when visiting the Azores make sure not to miss this island and it's underwater world!
