Ocean Revival - Algarve - Portugal

Ocean Revival - A Great Diving Site in the Algarve A unique diving site is now being created in the Algarve: Ocean Revival. This innovative project comprises of the sinking of four Portuguese Navy ships that will transform a zone of sand and mud into a very enjoyable place to dive. The ships will make an artificial reef structure, which will allow visits at different levels of difficulty. The underwater park will be located 3 nautical miles away from Portimao, in a calm water zone with temperatures ranging from 16 to 24°C / 61 to 75°F. Ocean Revival is a pioneering project supported by PADI Europe, Middle East and Africa and meets all the requirements to become one of the must-see diving sites of the world. The underwater park will have different levels of difficulty – from the simplest to the most technical type. You can be sure to find innovation, safety and a lot of fun at any of them. The bridge of the sunken ships will be at a depth of 15 metres/50 feet and the keel from 30-35 metres/98-115 feet. Therefore this will allow all kinds of diving, from the beginner to the technical diver. The first two ships – the Zambeze and the Oliveira Carmo – were sunk on 30 October. And the organization will sink the remaining two vessels – the Frigate and the Hydrographic Corvette – over the next year. Visit Ocean Revival website:
