Description:

Our diving center is an SSI Dive Center, as well as a Aqualung Partner Center, located in The Azores, on the Island of Terceira in the city of Praia da Vitória. We are a small to medium-sized dive center for sale located next to the local marina.  The dive center is in walking distance to large hotels, apartments, bars and restaurants. Nearby is also the largest sandy beach on the island with a great view of Praia da Vitória bay. Thanks to our favorable location there is a regular customer flow during the summer season, from May to October. During the wintertime, we have a group of local divers who join us most weekends. The locals are very interested in advancing their diving education so we have courses running almost all year round. Furthermore, near Praia da Vitória there is an American Military Base. The majority of the military stationed here are on the island without family.  They are generally young so they actively look for activities to do in their free time and they rotate every year so there is a constant need for training and courses. 

Since 2008 we have built the diving center into a vibrant growing business with a reputation for safety, quality, enjoyable diving and unique diving experiences including both shore and boat dives all around the coast of Terceira.  For the more experienced we even offer off shore diving, one of the many things Azorean diving is known for.  Praia da Vitória city is the best harbor on Terceira to access the unique dive site the “Don João Castro Bank”, a submerged active volcano full of marine life where we regularly see mobula rays.  When diving off shore there is also the possibility to see blue sharks which we have been experimenting with the past few years, we believe that there is large potential for this to be explored and developed.

We operate throughout the year with a large social network coverage.  We are in first place on Tripadvisor, with six Certificates of Excellence in a row.

We are looking to transfer our business to dive professionals who are committed to continuing a well established and growing business. If you share our passion for scuba diving, love teaching and enjoy the idea of living in an idyllic European location, this may be an opportunity for you.

Included in the sale is everything needed to continue as a fully operational dive center:

- With all required licenses and permits including a Whale Watching license (there are a limited number allowed and no more available on the Island);

- Rented customized shop space with drying, cleaning and storage areas, toilets and bathrooms; 

- Zodiac 7.5 m custom dive RIB (max 12 pax), with 1 x 200HP engine (bought in 2015), plus a 9.9HP backup engine (bought in 2021); 

- Private mooring in the local Marina (200mts from the dive center); 

- Coltri MCH 16 compressor; 

- Nitrox blending system; 

- Full diving equipment (16 full sets)

- 150kg of weights

- 30 tanks bought in 2020 (20X 12L; 8X 15L; 2X 6L)

- 2X - O2 emergency kits;

- 2-seat Dacia Dokker (bought in 2020);

- 5X Stand Up Paddle complete sets to rent. 

Reason for Selling:
The main reason for sale is a lifestyle change, more time to the family. And because our professional life got more demanding, leaving us less time to run the dive center..

Expansion Opportunities:
We still have some "high value" activities to explore and increase the cash flow: - Shark diving trips (with blue shark and mako); - Offshore diving trips; - Working with multimedia professionals (diving with whales & dolphins); - Marine protected areas; - New flight connections to Terceira from Europe and USA will open soon; - Nautical activities, SUP and Snorkeling trips to the generic public.

Offered Support for the new owner:
We offer up to one month of turnover during which time we will introduce you to all important parties and show you the dive sites and how we have been running the business. Also, we would be available to help with issues as they come up.
