Diving Rio da Prata

Tour Details

Diving Rio da Prata is a very popular attraction for those visiting the Bonito region, in the state of Mato Grosso do Sul.

This is a unique tour, where visitors can go scuba diving in the river, and observe the beauties that nature has to offer.

The fascination comes precisely from the encounter with the various schools of fish that inhabit the place.

And the crystal clear water of the river makes the adventure even more exciting, allowing you to observe everything in detail.

The city of Bonito is the main tourist town in this Midwestern area, and visitors end up taking the opportunity to explore nearby attractions as well.

This is exactly the case with this tour since Recanto Ecológico Rio da Prata is actually located in Jardim.

However, because of its proximity to the center (Bonito) and its unique beauty, it attracts thousands of tourists every year, both in high and low seasons.

Although the degree of difficulty is considered medium, no diving certification is required to explore the river. After all, there will be training before entering the water, and a guide will be responsible for leading the underwater adventure.

Those who have a scuba diving license, however, will find it easier to take the tour.

You don't have to go to faraway places like Ivory Coast, Isle of Man, United Arab Emirates, Cape Verde, Czech Republic, South Korea, Saudi Arabia, Democratic Republic of Congo, or Antigua and Barbuda to enjoy breathtaking scenery, because all these Bonito can offer you.

?? Attention, tourist!

Due to the conservation of Bonito's many natural wonders, there are a limited number of places to access the city's tours.

Knowing this, do not waste time: it is essential to prepare the itinerary of your trip as soon as possible.

?? What does Rio da Prata dive have to offer?

Scuba diving in Rio da Prata offers the safety of being accompanied by a trained guide. Thus, he will be able to supervise the tour and provide all the necessary support to the visitors.

In addition, it is possible to deeply experience the beauties of the underwater world of the river, with several species of fish and vast vegetation.

Due to the crystallinity of the water, the sensation is like flying, floating alongside the environment.

To give you an idea, the Rio da Prata has almost 60 species of fish, many of them organized in schools. Therefore, the contact with the animals is really direct, with a clear observation of everything.

Fallen trunks and branches, bright beams of light, walls, and other rock formations complete the submerged landscape.

? Dive path

Diving Rio da Prata reaches depths of an incredible 7 meters, showing off quite a bit of everything the site has to offer. Because of this distance below the surface, it is possible to have visibility ranging from 10 to 25 meters.

Furthermore, the exploration does not take place statically, but over an area of 600 meters, which is the course of the tour. And this leads to varied experiences, as well as observation from different points on the river, increasing the chances of coming across some shoals.

On average, the dive itself, that is, the time the visitor spends underwater is 40 minutes. This is a very well-used time, and the use of oxygen cylinders maximizes the dedication to the tour.

When the visitor does not have any certification, each dive happens individually or in pairs, always accompanied by the guide.

For accredited divers, the groups can be up to 4 people at a time.

? Rio a Prata Tourism

The Rio da Prata is a well-known natural tourist destination, which contributes to attracting visitors at all times of the year to the Bonito-MS region.

The breathtaking beauty, the presence of various species of fish, and the crystal clear waters are key points in this process.

Scuba diving, for example, became popular already around 2005, giving visitors even more options. Thus, today it is already one of the main attractions of the river. This is because it provides a unique experience of exploration in fresh water.

Although floating and hiking are fundamental, it is only diving that allows a deeper view of the region.

The direct contact with the fish and the unique view that the river has been responsible for this success. Therefore, it is worth trying the Silver River dive and being dazzled by the ride.
