Ocean Revival Project
The Ocean Revival project is an initiative in the Algarve that has resulted in the sinking of four ex-navy ships to create a truly exceptional diving destination in the South of Portugal. The four ships; a frigate, a corvette class destroyer, an ocean patrol boat and a hydrographic vessel, were sunk in the same area to create one of the top wreck diving destinations in the world. The four wrecks have created a huge artificial reef that has greatly boosted marine life in the area.
The Zambeze Ocean Patrol (292 tons, 44 meters long and 8 breadth).
The Oliveira e Carmo Corvette (1430 tons, 85 meters long e 12 breadth).
The Almeida Carvalho Hydrographic ship (1320 tons, 64 meters long and 12 breadth).
The Hermenegildo Capelo Frigate (2.700 tons, 102 meters long and 12 breadth).
