Divemaster/Skipper – Danilo Carioca
Born in Santos (Brasil), on the coast of São Paulo, Danilo later moved to Niterói, in Rio de Janeiro, spending all his life close to the wonder of nature that is the Sea.
He had his first contact with the underwater world in 2007 at Arraial do Cabo, a city in the lakes region in Rio de Janeiro, snorkeling with the turtles – what an exciting experience. On a trip to Caravelas, in the region that makes up the Rota das Baleias, in the south of Bahia, in 2008 he made his diving baptism with equipment in the Abrolhos archipelago.
Upon returning, completely enchanted with the marine life, he started the open water course and, after several dives, in 2017 decided to improve himself and pass the level to Advanced Diver. In 2018 he decided to study Tourism Animation in Portugal and applied for an internship with Nuno Oliveira, where he completed the Diver Stress & Rescue and Nitrox Level 2 courses. He returned in 2019, to complete his Divemaster course and became part of the WeDive staff.
