Only 8 - 10 minutes by boat from the base, Cape Garajau is located in the underwater nature reserve. This spot is known for one of the largest coastal fish, the brown grouper, with a length of 1.5 m.  These large specimens are 40 to 50 years old, used to divers and come closer to the curious visitor. This is one of the tops diving spot in the northern Atlantic due to the short "travel" time, the clear dive profile and the immense richness of species. It was selected as one of the "100 best dive spots in the world" by the magazine Underwater (Nov. 2003).
