Scuba Diving in Cape Verde
Cape Verde is located about 570 kilometers/350 miles off the West Coast of Africa. It is made up of 10 islands. The islands were used as a trading point during the Atlantic Slave Trade and heavily trafficked by ships.
Fascinating scuba diving fact: Cape Verde is the perfect setting for a wreck scuba diving vacation. Due to Cape Verde's geography and volcanic geology, the islands created a serious hazard for ships. Over 70 shipwrecks have been recorded between the 16th and 19th centuries off the coast of the islands. Therefore, the seafloor around Cape Verde looks something like a playroom scattered with boat toys. Intermediate and advanced scuba divers will think that the playroom metaphor extends way beyond the look of things -- there's loads for the savvy diver to explore.
