Face Norte

Welcome to the North Face of Ilha Comprida, the most sheltered coastline in the region. This dive site offers an abrupt slope, with depths ranging between 9 and 12 meters, where the sand meets the water.

Divers exploring this site will be delighted by the diverse marine life that calls these waters home. Keep an eye out for schools of Dog-Eye, Cocorocas, and Salemas. You may also encounter batfish and fake flyers. The clear waters of Ilha Comprida provide excellent visibility, allowing divers to spot turtles and rays gliding through the depths.

But that's not all! As you explore the sandy areas, you might come across stingrays gracefully hiding beneath the surface. And for an added surprise, keep your eyes peeled for two intriguing underwater statues. These statues, ranging from 1m to 1.5m in height, include a vase and a whimsical garden dwarf. They add a touch of underwater charm to this already captivating site.

Ilha Comprida is an ideal dive spot for beginners with a maximum depth of 13m. Its close proximity to Rio de Janeiro, Brazil makes it easily accessible for divers from the city and beyond. Immerse yourself in the beauty of the North Face of Ilha Comprida and embark on an unforgettable diving adventure.
