The sea waters of Boa Vista are rich with marine life. Scuba diving to explore this world is a very special experience.
The passing humpback whales between March to May are a joy to see.
Our special visitors, the turtles, in July to September allow for a very rare viewing of these vunerable animals. See them laying eggs early in the season and then hatching and dashing for the sea later in the season. The turtles are in the waters around the island all year, just sit on a sand dune by the water and you might just see one.
Visit Santa Monica and be amazed by the sand crabs.
The best place to go bird watching is the Rabil estuary. But if you want to appreciate the full range of birds on the Island we recommend taking a bird watching excursion.
And all over the Island you will see donkeys, cows, goats and chickens roaming free.
