An extremely interesting underwater reality took over the base of the seas in Portimão, far in your diving schools in Lisbon , the paper Público reported . Four Navy ships are now the background to the Ocean Revival underwater park and are the comfortable home of several species of snails, octopuses, mackerels and other fish and mollusks. Ships continue to be a massive attraction for countless sailors from several countries.
1 year after being trashed, under the watchful eye of many dive school instructors in Lisbon and throughout the country, Navy ships - a corvette, sea patrol, frigate and oceanographic boat - today have the assignment of to host the marine life - fauna and flora - of the region and also to make up a flourishing tourist attraction.
Underwater Park Portimão welcomes many diving enthusiasts from Lisbon and the whole nation.
Opened by the end of October 2012, the underwater park is situated 30 meters deep, where pontificam heaps of oysters, barnacles, porkfish, sea bream and sea bass. The surrounding fauna and flora are in such a way in symbiosis with all the boats it is no longer possible to distinguish the initial color of these ships. The boats were organized in such a way as to facilitate the entry of professional divers and students out of diving schools in Lisbon.
It needs to be remembered that the average time of stay at 30 meters does not exceed 40 minutes, which implies a few visits for a complete understanding of the vessels. The creation of a complete ecosystem in the region of sunken ships turned into a matter of months. The mussels which were attached to the hooves attracted the octopuses and the sea currents did the rest.
The four sunken ships currently house dozens of marine fish, shellfish and fish species
