Observation of corals and coral-related marine life.

Cape Verde is among the top ten places in the world for its coral biodiversity. Although there are no real coral reefs in the archipelago, there is a large number of sites rich in coral communities.
The Baia das Gatas, on the NE coast of Boa Vista, combines optimal natural conditions for both coral development and safe snorkeling.
The term “Gatas” refers to the local name of the nurse shark, whose mating occurs in these waters during the summer.

The coral community that is found in this bay is characterized by species of hermetic hard corals, which support a particular diversity of marine life.

Snorkeling tours are only possible at high tide.

We supply the necessary freediving equipment (wetsuit, non-slip shoes, life jacket, mask and snorkel) and we do not use fins to avoid damaging the corals.



From all the hotels, for a minimum of 4 participants.


Trip to As Gatas (4-wheel pick-up vehicle) takes approximately 50 minutes from Sal-Rei.


We normally spend 45-60 minutes in the water.

Coffee break

On the way back, we stop in a bar of a small village to take a drink and a snack.


Total lenght of the excursion is between 4 and 5 hours.
