Honestly, Ponta de San Lourenco (that´s the peninsula northeast of Madeira, paradise) is so beautiful that the diving experience you´d expect and deserve should be equally outstanding, right? Right. Thanks to Azul Diving this has become a reality. We did scuba and snorkeling, fabulous. They...More

Really enjoyed this activity, the staff were lovely, and the water was some of the clearest I've ever gone swimming in. Not as colourful or diverse as a tropical reef, but it's so clear it is still well worth doing.

Learned to launch, to paddle correctly and 3 different techniques for turning in 1 hour! Much more efficient than what I was doing by myself...

We hired a scooter for 20€/day to get there. It was great for exploring along the coast- Canical & Machico, and stopping for photos. Rent-a-scooter is just in downtown Funchal. Helmets and storage box included.
