The main goal of the CIIMAR Scientific Dive Centre is to assist in the planning and execution of scientific dive missions for researchers from CIIMAR, for guest researchers, and members of public- and private entities.
The Dive Centre consists of a team of highly trained and experienced scientific divers with deep and long-term knowledge on the fauna, flora and environmental conditions of the different ecosystems of the North Portuguese coast.
Our facility is fully equipped with state of the art dive- and survey equipment, available to be used in the environments we work.
We also aim to train new research divers by offering scientific dive training and specialized workshops.
