When you dive, if you are lucky, you can also see species such as the scorpionfish, which is reddish, and the pretty parrotfish, labeled this way because of its beak, which is used to pull up the shovels of the rocks.

If you want to scuba dive, in Madeira and Porto Santo are different centres and dive clubs. There you can organize immersions in different points of the archipelago, where you can get a CMAS certificate.

In Porto Santo, the most valuable zone is in the South of the Abrigo Port, where, since 2000, is sinked the Madeiran vessel which connected the the islands of Porto Santo and Madeira.
