Haliotis dive shop is one of the primary dive facilities in Peniche. They offer classes and training, as well as regular diving trips. They fill up quickly on the weekends, so best to reserve early.
10-passenger boats will take you on the ~45minute journey out to Berlenga Island. The boats are open sided and can take a lot of wind and spray, particularly in rough water. Do not bring anything on the boat that cannot get wet, unless it is in a sealed bag.
The diving is reported as the best in continental Portugal since the islands are a protected habitat. But I must admit that I was not very impressed. The cold water and rocky bottoms do not do well to give much underwater life. Most of the dives were full of various sea grasses, algea and minimal fish. In the ~2hrs underwater, the highlights were one scorpion fish, a few nudibrachs and one cuttlefish.
Included with the 2-dive trip is lunch on Berlenga Island. You will have one hour to explore the area on your own.
Equipment: Bring what ever you have, or you can request the shop to provide for you. A full set of equipment costs about 20Eur. Nitrox is available for +4Eur, but due to depths and dive times, it is not required.
The water temperature is 12~17C, so most people will opt for a 7mil suit with a hood.
