Excellent experience
It has already started with the great welcome and guidance from Maicon. Super professional team, prepared for any incident; The materials they offer us are of good quality and in excellent condition. In my opinion, practicing in the pool was essential for safe diving and, above all, being able to count on the care and patience of instructor André made all the difference. And the experience ended perfectly, on the paradise island of Arvoredo. Congratulations Água Viva Mergulho/Florianópolis! Will I be back?❤️

Nay Ferreira
Wonderful experience
It was a unique and wonderful experience. The boat trip was incredible, the crew was super helpful and friendly, the divers (Ryan, Fábio, Fiuza...) are super careful, fun and attentive... The diving baptism was sensational, the marine life in the place is incredible and very beautiful. I will definitely do it more often, it was wonderful.
Flávio Henrique
Great experience!
The experience was fantastic! If I were starting my career, it would definitely be my choice. The entire crew is to be congratulated for their commitment and dedication, but the photographer diver knows what he is doing very well! Don't forget to hire their services. PHOTOS ARE RECORDS FOR LIFE! There is no point trying to film or photograph with your own camera. It gets very bad. His camera and he are professionals. Worth every dollar! Congratulations to all of you! From the store staff, to the Captain. Congratulations on your professionalism, you know what you are doing!

An incredible experience
I crossed 1/2 of Brazil to do this dive and it was worth every penny, super attentive crew, wonderful place, super peaceful dive. There was a moment when I felt seasick and the crew was super helpful, if you have the opportunity, choose the baptismal dive, it's a totally different experience, and MUCH BETTER, than just snorkeling. The location is perfect, the fish were everywhere, even on the stairs that lead to the boat, the divers (Ryan, Fabio, Davi, Fiiuza, I hope I haven't forgotten anyone's name) are VERY friendly, polite, happy and playful , I don't even know what else to write, it's an experience difficult to describe, just the boat trip to Ilha do Arvoredo is something unique. When the photos arrive I will update here.
Top diving
I am accredited, I had a great experience with the Água Viva group. I recommend Ilha do Arvoredo for diving.
Basic diving course
I took the open water diver course and had an excellent experience. The staff is very careful at all times and very competent, I loved it!
Wonderful, excellent staff
Scuba diving. The experience was wonderful, we went to the island of Arvoredo, even though the visibility wasn't the best (rough sea) we had the opportunity to see stingrays, turtles, seahorses, moray eels and dozens of fish and colorful corals, thanks in large part to the guide who he knows the place very well and gave us an unforgettable dive. I recommend.
Diego Morales
My official initiation into diving
I took the open water diver course, and I felt well educated. The practical classes cover much less content than the theoretical material, but by talking straight, the instructors provide training in different useful skills that you feel necessary.
Excellent organization and experience
Without a doubt one of the most organized operators I have ever dived with. Punctual, large and well-maintained boat. Experienced, attentive and friendly professionals provided a great experience.
