The Abrolhos National Marine Park can be visited year-round.

In summer, December through February, the waters are warmer and have greater visibility, being the best time for dives. Between the months of June and November, we can see the Humpback whales.

Remembering that the development of activities at sea depends on the climatic conditions, especially the conditions of the winds and waves, which can make the trip unfeasible. For the best planning of your trip, consult the weather forecast for the best ride!

For greater comfort and safety, we do not recommend walking operations in conditions of wind speed greater than 20 knots.
