Ready, set, blast off! Azores islands here we come, and you can bet your bottom we are coming to dive.
The Azores islands are a volcanic island chain which is part of the country of Portugal. If you like rough landscapes, little fishing villages and blue water as far as the eye can see, then you will really like it here.
I think I’m the first smurf in the world to ever travel to this strange black landmass in the middle of the Atlantic ocean.
Planner Mom was a smartie pants and made sure to investigate the dive scene before we arrived. She found a place to stay only five minutes from the marina and dive shop. She even organized a dive for the day after we arrived, and I was sure glad she did. One look at the water and all I could think about was getting salty like a french frie in the ocean.
Counting down the hours until we get to strap on our mask and fins…
Finding out the difference between a drysuit and a wetsuit with Scuba Joe.
Scuba Joe teaches us that when the weather doesn't cooperate or the water looks hazardous, sometimes you need to cancel a dive.
Today I went on my first Atlantic ocean dive at Paddy’s Head. For a little smurf like me it was colder than I anticipated. Join me on my adventure.
I'm Scuba Joe and I come from a magical land far away. I was recently adopted and my new family is a bunch of scuba divers like me! Join me on my adventures.
