Located just a short distance from Quinta do Lorde Marina, this seamount near the shore offers an exceptional diving experience. Please note that this dive can only be accessed by boat.

One of the highlights of this dive site is the frequent sighting of the rarest seal in the world - the Monk Seal, also known as Lobo Marinho in Portuguese.

Exploring this underwater mountain begins at the summit and continues along the steep slope. As you venture deeper, you'll come across branches of black coral on the north and east slopes. The area teems with life, including large breams and dentex. A massive school of bastard grunt and salemas can be found close to the 30-meter mark. Among the rocks, you'll discover morays, trumpet fish, and giant anemones. Keep your eyes peeled as this dive site has the potential to surprise you with incredible encounters.
