Although the new road brings some extra visitors at the weekends, Ponta has not lost its charm; its beaches remain vast and stunning and its reefs and pinnacles remain unspoilt and far from the diver crowds. Being in a small group, drifting in the blue spotting sharks is still, quite simply, one of the best experiences ever.
Were the dives as good as last time? Yes, and sometimes better! We were blessed with excellent sightings of tiger sharks, bull sharks, hammerheads, black tips and a silver tip. We often had devil rays and eagle rays dancing beneath us in the blue, as well as huge shoals of barracuda, jacks and tuna. We even saw a manta on one dive! We were coming back off the boat beaming every day and thanked our beautiful ocean for letting us see it in all its glory. We know we were very lucky to quite literally have it all on our dives, but the chances of seeing sharks here are always good. The Scuba Addicts guides and crew are all excellent. Thanks to our main guide Matt (another shark whisperer) for excellent guiding and company.
