Snorkeling with turtles in Sao Vicente 

Swim with turtles in their natural environment!


Snorkeling with sea turtles in their natural habitat truly is a magical experience. Use this rare occasion to explore the ocean waters together with these historical sea creatures. Sao Vicente is the only island in Cape Verde where you can swim and snorkel with turtles in the ocean. 


With a local fishermen's boat and our local guides you’ll leave Sao Pedro beach behind. After a short boat ride you’ll see the turtles approaching. Take a minute to admire them, put on some flippers, goggles and jump in the clear ocean water. This is your chance to come eye to eye with the turtles while you snorkel around them!
